Frankenstein (1931) 
Frankenstein review
3.5/4 stars

Almost everybody knows the story, but not everyone has the privilege to view the original horror picture. Heinrich "Henry" Frankenstein (Colin Clive) and Fritz (Dwight Frye) tries to abduct a dead body. A wrong brain has been stolen by Fritz while Elizabeth (Mae Clarke), Henry's fiancee, receives a letter. Dr. Waldman (Edward Van Sloan), Victor and Elizabeth a creation from Henry. Frankenstein's monster (Boris Karloff) begins to move. The "Boo" special feature was funny and introduces the idea of a film with Dracula and Frankenstein together, and how would they react. Funny and different for a horror special feature.

Has one of the most horrific scenes for a monster flick, a kid being thrown to the water, strangulation's, etc. So many insightful lines like: "It is one of the strangest tales ever told. It deals with the two greatest mysteries of creation - life and death." - introduction "The brain is useless." "It as never lived." "You must be patient." "My work. All those horrible days and nights." and "Oh, in the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to be God!" - Henry. It is definitely one of the most influential horror films and most emulated. The direction and cinematography were superb and Karloff's portrayal was sensitive and menacing at the same time. Frankenstein may look dated or at times feel slow, it till however gives you the creeps while making you think about one's existence.
