The Bride! Plot

In a stormy castle night, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron commend Mary Shelley for her Frankenstein tale’s moral lesson. Mary hints at more to the story. The scene shifts to the windmill’s close from the 1931 movie, where the Monster survives.

It then follows the Monster’s encounters, including with Dr. Pretorius and the creation of a mate. Amidst chaos, the Bride rejects the Monster, leading to his decision to destroy them both. He sacrifices himself and the Bride by triggering the laboratory’s destruction, allowing Henry and Elizabeth to escape.
