Frankenstein (1931 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (559 words)
Frankenstein is a 1931 horror film from Universal Pictures loosely based on the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.
Visually the film was heavily influenced by the German expressionist films of the 1920s.
Whereas in Mary Shelley's novel, the creature's savage behavior is seen as the result or maltreatment and neglect, the film adaptation explains it is a consequence of Henry's installing a defective brain in the carcass.
