After the original film's success, James Whale directed a sequel for Universal, which begins on a stormy night at Villa Diodati, with Mary Godwin telling what happens next in the story by poets Shelley and Byron. The monster didn't die, even though it looked like it in the fire. It escaped from the ruins of the mill. Doctor Pretorius, Henry Frankenstein's old professor, asks him to work with him to create a partner for the monster, but he refuses. However, Pretorius carries on with his project of turning himself into another modern-day Prometheus, creating a woman to accompany the original creature in its solitude. One of the great films in the history of the horror genre, made grand by its subtlety and amusing, ironic tone.
