'Frankenstein' Depictions

These 5 Takes on ‘Frankenstein’ Will Have You Doing the Monster Mash

I don’t care what you say, nothing beats a classic monster movie. From the classic blood-sucking Dracula to The Wolf Man to the eerie Night of the Living Dead, these are the ones you can’t beat. Of course, let’s not forget the large and loveable Frankenstein. Mary Shelley’s monster of a novel has just hit its 200 year anniversary and since then it’s been depicted several times so, of course, we have faves.

 

All these adaptations have piled up over the years. From the black-and-whites to the modern day depictions, there are many to go around if you can’t find one you love (which is sort of impossible). However, if you need a little help, here are five of the best Frankenstein depictions in film.

Infographic: The Scariest Monsters in Literature

Halloween is a time for spooky monsters like the well-known Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Headless Horseman. It’s also a time for scary books. After all, every monster we just mentioned shares one thing in common: a literary heritage.

Books are full of creepy ghouls, ghosts, and monsters, so it’s no surprise that a lot of our Halloween horror inspiration comes from the scary stories on our bookshelves. But how well do you know the scariest monsters in all of literature?

Get into the spirit of Halloween with this awesome infographic from the folks at the UK’s Morph Costumes. All of the classic creeps are there, and they’re all helpfully labeled with a “Scream Score,” which is calculated by evaluating their creepy appearance, supernatural powers, and evil intent. Morph Costumes says that Pennywise, from Stephen King’s It, is the creepiest one of all. Do you agree?
