Dr. Frankenstein is running experiments on a dead monkey. Eventually he succeeds in bringing the monkey back to life. He calls in his friend Victor to gloat. Victor asks Dr. Frankenstein to end his experiments, but Dr. Frankenstein is determined to become the greatest scientist to have ever lived.


"Free me."

Dr. Frankenstein leaves his lab and breaks into a mortuary. He manages to avoid the guards and carries out parts of a corpse. As he leaves, he sees a bright light and hears a voice calling to him: "Free me." A moment later the vision is gone. As it begins to snow, Dr. Frankenstein continues to work. He makes his way to a graveyard and digs up a corpse. Again he hears the voice: "Free me." but sees no one. With his lab boarded up, Dr. Frankenstein leaves again to gather more parts for his experiment. As he lies it wait, he hears the voice again: "Free me." Dr. Frankenstein kills a bystander and drags the body back to his lab.

As Dr. Frankenstein is about to complete his experiment, Victor interrupts and pleads with him to stop. Dr. Frankenstein once again hears "Free me." and shoots Victor. With Victor dead, Dr. Frankenstein proceeds and flips the switch. The monster awakens, arises, and begins to chase Dr. Frankenstein. Dr. Frankenstein runs upstairs, shuts the door and shoots through the door, wounding the monster. The monster continues, breaks down the door, and growls "I'm free." Dr. Frankenstein screams.[2]
