Dir. James Whale. 1931, 71 mins. 35mm. With Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Mae Clarke, Dwight Frye, Edward Van Sloan. Karloff brings Frankenstein’s Monster to iconic life in this defining film of the Universal Horror canon that follows the mad scientist of the title (Colin Clive) in his obsessive journey to create life from stitched-together dead. But when his creation is born more monster than man, Frankenstein must confront the tormented creature he has set loose on the world. The influence of German expressionism shines through James Whale’s direction in this horror essential that remains as ghastly as it was upon its original release.
