If Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein (1818) might be learn as science’s dream of making lifestyles from “dead” physique components, thereby overcoming and staving the appearance of dying itself, a postmodern Gothic movie like Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands (1990) turns into an ironic touch upon the sort of dream the place residing organs are changed with (non)functional mechanical ones that restrict and confine the body’s performativity and reason it self-injury.
