While the men search the house for evidence, the women find clues in the kitchen and hallway, and a dead canary that cracks the case wide open. But will more damage be done by revealing the killer?

This new adaptation of the classic book tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment, unwilling to let death be the final end after he loses his mother.
