Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"James Whale’s adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein incited many vital developments in our consideration of cinema. Besides ushering in the concept of the modern American horror film, it also made a star of Boris Karloff, sent Whale off on a lengthy career in both film and theater, and brought censorship into the cultural conversation as no film had ever previously done. But on a more elemental level, it remains an intimate accomplishment in character-based drama and ethical inquisitiven"

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"

" 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 An outdated, not even entirely exceptional for it's time piece, that is most noteworthy for it's place in history and the films it inspired from better directors.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 (128 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"
