The theme of disruption refers to the unbalancing of what is natural, a theme which is explored and opinionated in Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein (1817) and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner (Director’s cut), where ‘disruptive’ actions of individuals, involving the exploitation of nature, bring about [ironically] the character’s own downfall, and more importantly, an undesired outcome whilst playing god.

However, depending on the context, readers interpret and respond differently to the Creature; we also begin the feel sympathy with him as the novel progresses therefore making his character less horrifying. Shelley first develops a sense of fear in the creation of the Creature; it is Frankenstein’s language that draws the reader in, ‘I possessed the capacity of bestowing animation’, the idea of creating life is not presented in a positive light but instead Shelley uses the simile ‘like a hurricane’ to display Frankenstein’s feelings, suggesting that the consequences of his decisions will not be easily overcome. Frankenstein’s description of the setting ‘a dreary night of November’ creates dark and dismal imagery therefore setting the reader up for something unpleasant; this feeling is then fulfilled with the adjective ‘dull yellow eye’ when the Creature first awakes, the image of a yellow eye suggests something inhuman. When ‘Frankenstein’ was first published, the response to the idea of creating life would have been different to the reaction of the present readers as in comparison to the present year there was little scientific knowledge.
