Storyboard Text

  • In Petersburg, Russia, Robert Walton writes letters to his sister informing her of his expedition to find a passage through the Arctic Ocean. He tells her about his crew, of which he is very proud, and finally decides to set sail.
  • After arriving in the Arctic, Robert Walton finds Victor Frankenstein stranded and ill on a sheet of ice. Victor tells Robert his story in order to protect him, and anyone in pursuit of outlandish scientific discovery from any future mistakes he could possibly make.
  • Victor begins with a back story about his family. He goes on to tell Robert about his fascination with nature, and reanimating dead organisms. Victor goes away to a school called Ingolstadt in Germany. It is at Ingolstadt that he begins to create a creature from dead body parts, and brings it to life.
  • Once his creature comes to life at Ingolstadt, Victor is horrified. He wakes to the creature standing over him and runs way, leaving the creature stranded. The creature is now on the loose with no supervision from his creator. 
  • After finding and watching over a family who he was unwanted by and realizing how ugly he is, he becomes depressed. He realizes that Victor hates him and he feels despair, which turns into anger. The creature begins to make his way to Geneva, running into William Frankenstein. William mocks him and calls him ugly, and he hates Victor and knows they are family, so he murders William.
  • Justine, the house servant, is framed in Geneva for the murder of William. She is executed. Victor knows deep down that it was the creature who murdered William, which means it was ultimately Victor's fault.
