Not only the finest version of Frankenstein I've ever seen,this was probably also one of the best movies of any category.This version follows the story of Shelleys more closely and eschews cheap thrills and worn out cinematic tricks to elevate the story into the realm of psychology and philosophy- Without detracting from the spookiness one iota.Brilliant Cinematography,excellent acting (it took me awhile to recognize DeNiro!) and that certain something that really takes you there that so many movies sadly lack.A must see for any discerning connisseur of Quality Horror or Gothic themes.

Excellent horror film and deserves its place among the most frightening movies of all time! James Whale is one of my favorite directors and it pains me to know that he is one of the most underappreciated directors of all time. Having said that, of his four Universal horror films, FRANKENSTEIN is his worst. Now that's not to take anything away from it, rather when compared to THE OLD DARK HOUSE, THE INVISIBLE MAN and especially BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, it is downgraded considerably. But, on its own, it is a good film.

A classic horror film. When most people think of the classic Universal Monsters, they think of Dracula, they think of the Creature From The Black Lagoon, they think of the Wolf Man, but first, they think of Frankenstein. A wonderful start to Boris Karloff's career. And of course, without him, there would be no Munsters!

The original Frankenstein must have been something when first seen. The wonderful instant atmosphere--the foggy graveyard, the two slinking figures waiting for the funeral to end, looking for bodies. Karloff, for the first time, actually interpreting the role, using his expressive face and those enormous hands, the appeal to the world to accept his being. Of course, it is entirely removed from the classic book (who says it has to follow the book, an entirely different medium) where the creature is brought to life by some secret means then goes on to become sentient, philosophical, and vengeful. Still, this hulking reanimation is trying to fit in but can't control his base impulses. His very size is his enemy. The carelessness of Fritz sets everything in motion--had he not panicked we might have had an Albert Schweitzer "monster" running through the countryside doing good deeds. Now there's a horror movie!

the Shape has grown to love this film, especially its most famous scenes. The bringing of life, using lightning, Colin Clive, almost frothing at the mouth, screaming "It's alive, it's alive," the death of the little girl through a childlike misunderstanding, the encounter with the blind man, and of course, the scene at the windmill, the villagers running with their torches. By the way, where did they get all those torches? Unlike the first reviewer, the Shape urges you to see this film, not because of its lack of faithfulness to the novel, but because of its captivating portrayal of horror. the Shape wish he could have been in a theater in the 30's and seen Edward Van Sloan announce to us that we were about to be terrified. What a moment! Sincerely the ever loving, blue eyed Shape

It is one of the best horror movies in my opinion. It had a story to tell, had lots of action, and even some emotions to it. I loved it!
