Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

Corrected entry: When Victor is being chased by the creature in the arctic, Victor is pushed/slides down a hole, and conveniently lands on ice. When he gets up, the monster is already there - almost like he teleported. It is a physical impossibility for the monster to get down the hole so fast.

Correction: Victor is seen to be knocked out by his fall - there is even a short shot of the Creature picking him up and carrying him to the spot where he later wakes up.


Corrected entry: When Victor makes the female Frankenstein he uses Elizabeth's whole head, so why are there scars on one of her eyes and her top lip when he didn't use other body parts there?

Correction: She has scars there because she was burned at the hotel. There was probably some reconstructive work that Victor did there which was simply not shown.

Factual error: Justine is accused of murdering Victor's young brother and is taken by police. A lynch mob takes her to the top of a fortress wall, drapes a noose around her neck and tosses her over the side. She falls for what looks like at least 8 metres. When the rope comes taut, she is killed but her head isn't ripped off by the force of the fall. Falling for that distance should have torn her head from her body.

The Creature: I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.
