Few dramas are as heartwarming -- or heartbreaking -- as the original tale of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare's tragedy set the bar for all romances, and even after four hundred years, few works in any medium match its intensity and beauty. Romeo and Juliet's set in Verona, where two families, the Montagues and the Capulets, have been feuding for years. When Romeo and his friends crash a Capulet party, the young Montague spies the beautiful Juliet, and a passionate love affair begins that will bring these two families together in the most tragic of circumstances.

Victor Frankenstein, a brilliant young scientist, returns to his Swiss chateau to escape a terrible pursuer. No one can shake free the dark secret that terrifies him: not his mother, nor his fiancee, nor his best friend. Even the pleading of a gypsy girl accused of murdering Victor's younger brother falls on deaf ears, for Victor has brought into being a creature made from pieces of the dead. The creature tracks Victor to his sanctuary to demand a bride to share its loneliness. Against his better judgement, Victor agrees and soon the household is invaded by murder, despair and terror!
