Frankenstein

Boris Karloff stars as the screen's most memorable monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made. Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster (Karloff) out of lifeless body parts. Director James Whale's impressive adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel, blended with Karloff's compassionate portrayal of a creature groping for identity, is what makes 'Frankenstein' a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time. Followed by the equally admired 'The Bride of Frankenstein'.
