Frankenstein Scene 9

Scene 9

Scene 9

  • We're down in the monster's cellar. He's in handcuffs, thrashing and growling.
  • Fritz runs up and starts to whip and beat him.
  • Henry shows up and tells Fritz to stop. But then Henry starts whining in self-pity and clutching his head. He staggers out telling Fritz to leave the monster alone.
  • But Fritz just goes back to threatening him with the torch.
  • Fritz is awful; Henry is awful. The monster never had a chance to be a good monster, with those two as his creators.
