 The Creature: Did you ever consider the consequences of your actions? You made me, and you left me to die. Who am I?

Victor Frankenstein: You? I don't know.

The Creature: And you think that I am evil.

The 1994 film version of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, directed by Kenneth Branagh. Unlike Bram Stoker's Dracula, this is actually much closer to the original novel, although many new elements were still added to the story.

At the turn of the 19th century, a ship searching for a route to the North Pole encounters a man wandering the ice. Nearing death, the man says his name is Victor Frankenstein, and he relates a story to the captain explaining how his attempts to play God and reverse Death caused the destruction of his entire world.
