Shot on location in Comber and Clandeboye Estate in Bangor, this Roy Spence classic is an homage to the classic Frankenstein story. A strange old hermit employs witchcraft to give life to the dead Frankenstein’s monster and uses the creature to take vengeance on those who wronged him previously. But will the creature stay loyal to his creator or seek his own revenge?
