There were scenes that I liked quite a bit in this, but as a whole it was a let down even compared to other films of the 1930's. The characters are so underdeveloped that it would really only be entertaining for young kids. This was my first time viewing the film, and I was disappointed that the bride didn't receive hardly any screen time. (Elsa Lanchaster looked great as the bride.) It was rated so highly, and I had heard it had a fairly big budget, so I was really expecting some excellent writing, and directing, but what I got instead was low-budget grade writing and directing. I can't believe anybody over 10 yrs old would enjoy this, unless an adult was watching for the nostalgia of having seeing it as a child.

Both commentaries of the Lincoln/Belmont library copy has glitches. The glitches made it difficult to play through the glitches at the time I listened to both of the commentaries and they were very informative. The Monster Tracks, as well as, Karloff: The Gentle Monster are also very informative. The main cast regarding the principal characters they had portrayed did a very good job, especially in reference to how Karloff had portrayed the monster as being sympathetic and to Colin Clive who had portrayed the tormented Henry Frankenstein.

"Fee-Fye-Foe-Fum!"_____ Even if you happen to be one of the world's most rabid/jaded horror-movie freaks, I'd confidently say that (for a mad scientist/monster picture) Frankenstein (which is now 80+ years old) is still a film that's quite capable of giving you chills & thrills that not even modern-day horror can satisfactorily deliver._____ Featuring some truly impressive sets, superb cinematography and solid direction by James Whale, Frankenstein (which just drips with dark & gloomy atmosphere) is, undoubtedly, an undisputed classic gem of Gothic horror._____ Believe me, when the viewer gets their first look at the re-animated Frankenstein monster, this has got to be one of the most awesome moments ever captured on screen in horror-movie history._____ Loosely adapted for the screen from the novel of the same name...... Now, I don't mean to sound sexist here - But, it truly amazes me that such a story as this was penned, not by a man, but by a woman. Only 21 at the time, like, what could've possibly been going on in young Mary Shelley's head (back in the year 1818) to have prompted this girl to write such a macabre story as this?_____ With a running time of only 70 minutes, I sure got a kick out of this film's priceless "Word of Warning" opening sequence.

This special features do an excellent job of putting this film into perspective. This isn't just a monster movie.
