Bride follows the adventures of Baron Charles
Frankenstein (Sting), his newest living
creation Eva , and her mate-to-be monster Viktor.
After bringing the recently deceased Eva back to life
via the trusty old lightning bolt, Dr. Frankenstein's
laboratory is destroyed in a billowing explosion that
consumes almost everything in it. Dr. Frankenstein,
Eva and some assistants are able to escape, as is the
monster (unbeknownst to Dr. Frankenstein, who thinks
he died in the fire).
After escaping, Viktor meets up with Rinaldo,
a midget with aspirations to get to Budapest. On the way to
Budapest, the two join a circus where Rinaldo and
Viktor star in a two-man trapeze act. Gaining
self-confidence and some mental skills, Viktor is
happy with his new life until a tragic accident leads him
back to castle Frankenstein.
Meanwhile, Dr. Frankenstein is working on Eva's
manners and social skills. She starts with the mind of a
child, but soon starts growing into a fiercely independent
woman. Eva learns how to read, walk, socialize, and
even how to sass back to the poor old doctor. Her continuing
sexual independence starts to annoy Frankenstein,
especially after she gets the hots for a handsome suitor.
