"Think of it....the brain of a dead man, waiting to live again...in a body I made, with my own hands....my own hands".....
    Colin Clive as Dr. Henry Frankenstein

DDDDDDD

 

 

 Perhaps the greatest horror film of all time, "Frankenstein" was released in 1931 by Universal Studios, who had the forsight to see that there was an element missing in the movie genre....spawning possibly the most identifyable character in the history of film, let alone the horror spectacle.

 

With make up created by master craftsman Jack Pierce, the monster was brought to life by the great Boris Karloff,  who leads you on a journey of joy, sadness, desperation, and fear, as he searches the countryside looking for friendship, and finding only hate.

 


 
Thru the directorial lead of the late, great James Whale, we're taken on a  journey of madness and the macabre as our anti-hero scrounges cemetarys, purging graves of the newly dead to stitch together a man. The essense of which is a laboratory brain obtained by hunchbacked assistant Fritz, who unwittingly stole  a criminal brain. Unawares, Dr. Frankenstein brings his creature to life.
 
 

.
In a stirring climax the two battle atop a whindmill engulfed in flames by the village mob. No match for the monster, the good doctor is thrown from the tower leaving his creature to suffer the torment of fire. 
Realizing only too late his creation has the brain of a killer, Dr. Frankenstein seeks out the help of Dr.Waldman, who unknowingly  supplied the brain for the monster. 

But the good Doctor is no match for the monster, who flees the tower of his 'birth', in a mad rage, bent on revenge, and in search of his 'creator', Dr.Frankenstein.
 

 
Miraculously, Henry survives the fall as the towering windmill crashes to the earth in a massive pile of smoldering embers, signalling the end of the terror, with the death of Frankenstein's Monster.

or does it?
