Bride of Frankenstein

The film, Bride of Frankenstein, a sequel to Frankenstein, is an American horror film. In Frankenstein, Frankenstein, the scientist, created a living creature from the dead. The creature became a monster. In the sequel, Frankenstein abandoned his thought of creating life but in the later part of the film, his old mentor, Dr. Pretorius, encouraged him to construct a mate for the monster.

The film shows that man's desire to do new things force them to do immoral things. The monster was created from a corpse. Using the dead to create life is not a right thing to do. A person's life is spontaneous, it has a natural direction. A person  lives then dies. Human's life is a natural process so other people should not interfere with it. Also, in the film Dr. Pretorius asked Frankenstein to create a mate for the monster and in the later part of the film, he ordered his servant to kill an innocent young lady just to have a functional heart for the mate of the monster, which is of course very unethical. 
In the film, the monster was judged by the people by his appearance, but the monster was really good at heart.

Human beings have a lot of things in mind. They think of so many things that they want. They try to explore so many things. The film shows that with science almost everything is possible but we should always remember to put morality first before excellence. Bringing back life to the dead is excellent but it is immoral.
