'Frankenstein' Depictions

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

"IT'S ALIVE!!!"
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.
