Although the story is a familiar one, it should still thrill audiences with Halloween just around the corner.
A young scientist is obsessed with the secrets of life and death, and he builds a creature from parts of bodies he has stolen from various places. He successfully brings Frankenstein to life but is unable to control him. The monster strikes terror in the local villagers, who seek to kill him.
The classic horror film brought fame to a little-known actor named Boris Karloff and established director James Whale as one of the top talents in Hollywood. The movie also stars Colin Clive and Mae Clarke.
