Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - Patrick Doyle - Soundtrack Review

I was always a big fan of the “Frankenstein” movies and read the book when I was a teenager. Also, Kenneth Branagh established himself as a great director who was not able to direct entertaining Shakespeare adaptions such as “Much Ado About Nothing”, also with a wonderful score by Patrick Doyle, he directed with “Dead Again” a haunting thriller that immediately caught me when I saw it for the first time. Therefore, I was highly excited to see these two very gifted people working on a Frankenstein-movie. This was a must see for me!
