Scene 5

Scene 5

  • In Dr. Waldman's office, Waldman's talking to Elizabeth and Victor.
  • Waldman says Henry is brilliant and erratic.
  • He says Henry has an "insane ambition to create life." Also, Henry wanted dead bodies for his research.
  • That's dead human bodies, Victor, not animal bodies.
  • If the film had a score, there'd be an ominous little crescendo after that revelation.
  • The university wouldn't give him bodies and/or brains, so Henry left so he could steal corpses unhampered.
  • Elizabeth says she wants to go see Henry, and asks Waldman to come too.
  • Waldman says, no thanks, but then she convinces him.
  • Bad move, Waldman.
