Chicago Reader review:
'Mary Shelley's modern Prometheus story is altered (giving the monster
the brain of a madman) to produce one of the most deservedly famous and
chilling horror films of all time (1931). Boris Karloff as the monster
and James Whale's direction (he was to top himself with Bride of Frankenstein
four years later) combine to create an effectively frightful mood. Even
after all these years, it's still not all that camp or funny.' Don Druker
Here is the trailer.
