Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. First published in London in 1818 (but more often read in the revised third edition of 1831), it is a novel infused with some elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement. It was also a warning against the "over-reaching" of modern man and the Industrial Revolution. (The novel's subtitle, The Modern Prometheus, alludes to the over-reaching and punishment of the character from Greek mythology.) The story has had an influence across literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories and films. Many distinguished authors, such as Brian Aldiss, claim that it is the very first science fiction novel.

Frankenstein Movies

Frankenstein (1910 film)

Frankenstein is a 1910 film made by Edison Studios that was written and directed by J. Searle Dawley. It was the first motion picture adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The unbilled cast included Augustus Phillips as Dr. Frankenstein, Charles Ogle as The Monster, and Mary Fuller as the doctor's fiancée. It was filmed at the Edison Studios in the Bronx, New York City. Although some sources credit Thomas Edison as the producer, he in fact played no part in the activities of the motion picture company that bore his name.

Frankenstein (1931 film)

Frankenstein is a 1931 horror film from Universal Pictures directed by James Whale and very loosely based on the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. The film tells the story of a scientist named Dr. Henry Frankenstein, whose work takes him into the dark side of life after death. Visually the film was heavily influenced by the German expressionist films of the 1920s.

Son of Frankenstein

Son of Frankenstein is a horror film made by Universal Studios in 1939 and directed by Rowland V. Lee. It stars Basil Rathbone as the son of the famous scientist, Boris Karloff appearing for the third and final time as the Monster, and Bela Lugosi as the demented Ygor. The cast also includes Lionel Atwill, Josephine Hutchinson, and Donnie Dunagan. It was followed by The Ghost of Frankenstein in 1942.

The Ghost of Frankenstein

The Ghost of Frankenstein (often referred to without the article "The" in the title), was an American horror film released in 1942. It was the fourth of in a series of films produced by Universal Studios based upon characters in Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein. It starred Lon Chaney Jr. as The Monster, taking over from Boris Karloff who played the role in the first three films of the series, and Bela Lugosi as the demented Ygor.

Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man

Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, released in 1943, is an American horror film produced by Universal Studios. It was the first of a series of "ensemble" monster films combining characters from several film series. This film, therefore is both the fifth in the series of films based upon Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and a sequel to The Wolf Man.

House of Frankenstein (1944 film)

House of Frankenstein was an American horror film produced in 1944 by Universal Studios as part of its ongoing series of monster films. It is the first of three "multi-monster" films produced by the studio in the waning years of the Universal Monsters series. (The last two would be 1945's House of Dracula and 1948's Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.)

House of Dracula

House of Dracula was an American horror film released by Universal Studios in 1945. The film was in essence a sequel to the previous entry in the Universal Monsters series, House of Frankenstein, insofar as it continued the theme of combining Universal's three most popular monsters: Frankenstein Monster (played by Glenn Strange), Count Dracula (John Carradine) and The Wolf Man (Lon Chaney Jr.). However some elements of continuity from the previous film were dropped, such as the death of Dracula.

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein is a 1948 comedy/horror film in which characters played by Bud Abbott and Lou Costello deliver large heavy crates to a wax museum only to discover that the contents -- Frankenstein's monster and Dracula -- are neither wax nor dead. Bela Lugosi stars as Dracula; Glenn Strange stars as Frankenstein's monster; and Lon Chaney Jr. makes an appearance as the Wolfman. The film was directed by Charles T. Barton from a screenplay by Robert Lees, Frederic I. Rinaldo and John Grant.
