Frankenstein (1931)


Director: James Whale

Writers: Garrett Fort & Francis Edward Faragoh

(Based on a novel by Mary Shelley)

A Horror classic!  My first time seeing it.  Watching older films like this I am always kind of unsure as to how to talk about them.  I mean I can’t compare it to things of today so I have to take it in the context of 1931.  But I wasn’t alive then so what do I know.

Everyone knows the story.  Man re-animates a dead body, the monster breaks loose, a village erupts into chaos.  Boris Karloff plays the iconic Monster.  Finally watching this makes me appreciate the references in Young Frankenstein even more.

A fine film and one that can’t really be denied.  It was been around for 80 years and is still being seen today for a reason.
