⚡️ REVIEW: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein ⚡️

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein envisions a young ward of the Frankenstein family who captures the eye of Victor. Escaping from her life of poverty seems like a dream and she ingratiates herself with the family becoming a companion to their unusual son. She begins to see that something might be not quite right with Victor but with each incident she brushes it under the rug to preserve her place in this home.

The story has all of the building uncomfortable, unsettling creepiness of Shelly’s original work. Mostly subtle clues about Victor’s true nature build to a fabulous crescendo. The unraveling of what Elizabeth thought she was coping with and the true horror was masterfully done. Elizabeth reminded me a lot of Kerri Maniscalco’s Audrey Rose.

I had to take off a half star for the epilogue, another case where the ending was just perfect without it. I really hate this trend of feeling you need an extra bow at the end when the original ending is already well done. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
