Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

 

Francis Ford Coppola produced and Kenneth Branagh directed and starred in this 1994 adaptation of the novel, a companion to Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992), featuring Robert De Niro as the Creature. Though advertised as the most faithful film adaptation of Mary Shelley's novel, Branagh's film nonetheless featured significant discrepancies from the book, as well as homages to previous films, in turning a reconstructed and resurrected Elizabeth into the "Bride of Frankenstein."
