  • Fritz accidentally drops the jar with the brain he was supposed to bring, so he takes another one

      Loosely based on the novel by Mary Shelley, this classic horror movie is perhaps one of the better known adaptations. Boris Karloff’s make up and performance of the monster make it quite unforgettable, despite the movie’s liberal handling of the book.


      Frankenstein (Colin Clive) is obsessed with finding out the secret of life

      and creating a human being of his own.

      He assembles that being out of “spare parts” he obtains from recent graves together with his assistant Fritz.

      When the work is almost complete and the doctor needs a brain, he sends Fritz to steal one from the university lab.

      Fritz accidentally drops the jar with ...

      • the brain he was supposed to bring, so he takes another one; that other brain, marked as “abnormal,” used to belong to a criminal (I suppose this whole story is invented to explain why the creature turns wild and dangerous).

        The doctor manages to bring his creation to life.

        Fritz, assigned to watch over

        the creature, torments it with fire and a whip fire.

        The monster ends up killing its torturer and escaping.

        As it wanders about, it accidentally kills a young girl (instead of saving her, as in the book), which sets the whole village off to hunt him.

        The monster is eventually cornered and dies in a fire.
