Description by OLDIES.com:
, John Buchanan (John Hurt) is a scientist in New Los Angeles, 2031. When one of his experiments fractures the very core of time and space, he is thrust backin time to nineteenth century Geneva where he finds Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Raul Julia) desperately trying to cope with his own disastrous experiment. Impressed with Buchanan's advanced knowledge of electricity, Frankenstein enlists his help with his "creation" Ð persuading Buchanan that the only wayto stop "it" from killing is to create a mate. Th epoutrageous endeavor could either save the scientist... or destroy them!
A scientist involved in the creation of destructive new superweapons is accidentally hurled back in time when an experiment backfires. In the year 1817 he meets young Mary Shelley, an aspiring author, and Dr. Victor Frankenstein, whose own experiment has gone haywire. Seeking to stop his Monster's reign of terror, Frankenstein sees the visitor's vast scientific knowledge as a way to further his own monstrous endeavors. Based on the fascinating novel by Brian Aldiss, FRANKENSTEIN UNBOUND marks Roger Corman's return to directing after an absence of twenty years.
