Critic Reviews for Frankenstein
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.More
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?
So this was the original adaption of that novel - meh. Some of the mirror shots were nice, but the tinting seemed pointless, and the ending is stupid and accomplishes nothing.More
This film is actually amazing for it's time. The Monster is about the scariest rendition I've seen. You can also watch the entire film on YouTube. Go do it now.
Look really close, at the end because it looks like Dr. Frankenstein and his lady friend are just about to high-five before the freeze frame.
