Frankenstein was one of the first monster movie classics to come from the Hollywood film studios. The was adapted "loosely" from the original Mary Shelley Gothic classic. A lot of this film was based upon several other earlier German expressionism films and a play. But this film was a landmark. It spawned several official sequels, scores of knock-offs and it made Boris Karloff a horror film legend.
The movie is about Dr. Frankenstein and his stooge Igor. One day, the good doctor discovers that he can bring life to a mix-and-match body. All he needs is the perfect brain for his specimen. Will Igor find a "perfect" cranium? Can Dr. Frankenstein really create life? How does his wife cope with his "eccentric" husband? You'll find out the answers to all of these questions when you watch James Whale's Frankenstein!!
A classic film that has held up pretty well over the years. I have to strongly recommend this movie! Followed by The Bride of Frankenstein.
