Critic Reviews for Frankenstein

All Critics (3)

It's too much to ask that a century-old movie should still be even marginally "scary", but... [it's] is still impressively able to be unsettling and creepy.

Antagony & Ecstasy

As with many long-sought-after titles, the film does not live up to heady expectations. However, it is an important film from a historic viewpoint.

Audience Reviews for Frankenstein


I just watched this on youtube. For the beginning the lighting was so light I couldn't hardly tell what was going on. But I loved the creation of the monster scene, it's real creepy and amazing, so I give the movie two of its stars just for that. The story is short and simple, and the actors tell it fine without any intertitles for dialogue. Overall, a cool movie, but it could've been better, especially the ending.

The very first film version of Frankenstein made by Thomas Edison's film company in 1910.
Some will be bored as it doesn't contain nudity, violence or audio and it's in that yucky B & W; others will appreciate this amazing achievement from the infancy of film.

And will someone please find a suitable poster or image since what's given is not accurate?

Of course, since Mary Shelley never specified how Frankenstein's monster was created it is interesting to see the way this film crew envisions it. In a big cauldron, the student Frankenstein forms the hideous creature out of fire. Charles Ogle's makeup looks pretty wild, but scene after scene is so static with bland sets, histrionic actors, and oversimplified title cards advancing the bare bones plot.
