100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"When Universal first released James Whale's brilliant 'Frankenstein' in 1931, they were nervous enough about the power of its horrific story to tack on a (admittedly rather tongue-in-cheek) disclaimer at the beginning, in which actor Edward Van Sloan warns viewers of a nervous disposition that they may wish to leave the screening. While many of the Universal horrors are now considered tame enough to be shown on afternoon television (where I first saw 'Frankenstein'), in 1931 it is not hard to se"

TDcore's Horror Journal: 2018 (50 movies items)

" Those with their rose-tinted nostalgia glasses firmly positioned will call this a classic, and one of the greatest horror films of all time. Discerning, experienced filmgoers will see it as it is. An outdated, not even entirely exceptional for it's time piece, that is most noteworthy for it's place in history and the films it inspired from better directors. It's an alright picture, but for those who know the story of Frankenstein it's simply a paint by the numbers affair. The direction is wor"

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2018 (103 movies items)

" - Rewatched | Second time Frankenstein's greatest asset lies in its characterization of The monster and Boris Karloff's portrayal of him. He embodies a monster that is truly horrifying in its simplicity. The scene that have him drown a little girl after harmlessly playing with her is truly terrifying. Yet he manages to evoke some sort of sympathy through his constant look of confusion and fear. It's truly an iconic performance. Sadly I think the film itself has lost some of its magic. At least"

Halloween (2017) (30 movies items)

"Tiene una increíble atmósfera. Los actores ponen bastante esfuerzo. Los personajes salvo Frankestein y su monstruo son olvidables, e incluso daban a entender que había un romance entre la prometida de Frankestein y su hermano que no llegó a nada, así que no entiendo porqué lo metieron. En general es muy sólida."

Movie Reviews (51-100) (50 movies items)

" Still an impressive 1930s horror drama which really define the monster as a misunderstood creature and the humans are bad guys. Karloff in makeup is unforgettable. The creation of the Monster by lightning is a memorable film moment. A chilling scene with the Monster and the Child and the dramatic climax with the Windmill add to a film filled with iconic filmatic imagery here."
