Celebrate the 90th anniversary of the original 1931 Frankenstein with a series of frightening and funny Franken-flicks brought back to life on the big screen and guaranteed to scare you off the slab!

An impressively stylish horror classic with a weird fairytale beauty. Boris Karloff gives one of the great film performances of all time.” – Time Out Film Guide

“It’s alive!”  The great Boris Karloff stars as the screen’s most memorable monster in the gruesome granddaddy of all horror films, directed by James Whale and based on Mary Shelly’s classic novel. Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster (Karloff) out of lifeless, salvaged body parts, with the help of his eccentric assistant, Fritz (Dwight Frye, who also played Renfield in Dracula that same year).  The mad scientist’s dreams are soon shattered by his creation’s violent rage as the monster awakens to a world in which he is unwelcome, leading to a chain of destructive and tragic events.  Featuring groundbreaking makeup by Jack Pierce, brilliant direction from James Whale, and a terrifying, sympathetic, non-verbal performance by Karloff as a tortured creature groping for identity, Frankenstein is a masterpiece not only of the horror genre, but for all time. (Dir. by James Whale, 1931, USA, 70 mins., Not Rated)
