Frankenstein (1931)

1931 Horror, Sci-Fi

User Score: 67/100


An obsessed scientist assembles a living being from parts of exhumed corpses.

This film is an incredible piece of work and will stand the test of time-actually, it has already stood the test of time by this point, given that it is 70 years old. A remarkable film that, along with Dracula, succeeds not only as horror, but as cinema. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then this is one of the most flattered films in cinemtic history. One of the all-time greats. Most totally, wholeheartedly and completely recommended.
