Plot – The young Baron of Frankenstein, heir to a Central European family, is passionate about scientific research. One day he discovers a magnetic fluid capable of reanimate a dead man by trasplanting a new brain in him. He steals a giant corpse and an abnormal brain and creates a "monster". Obviously, the new creature is tarrying and kills whatever is in its way, but it is also sensitive because of an inclination for compassion and, above all, love. Many adventures will lead the monster to become the husband of Elizabeth, the ex-girlfriend of the scientist; moreover, the young Von Frankenstein will marry the assistant Inga.
