There are only a few basic themes in horror and sic-fi and Shelley's Frankenstein is one of them. It's the theme of a well intended creation that over-reaches and becomes a horror. That theme has been used over and over for the last 2 centuries, in countless movies and books. It all started because of the eruption of an Indonesian volcano --- weather went bad (The Year Without a Summer) --- some gathered poets wrote scary stories and The Monster was one of them.
