Truly great stuff. You have to remember this was 1931 and nobody had seen anything quite like this before regarding special effects. It's still creepy and moving 86 years later. I watched it back-to-back with Young Frankenstein, the 1974 Mel Brooks comedic adaptation, and it compares well. Cool fact: The laboratory equipment from the original film was used in the 1974 version! Great Special Features disc will please the fans.

Both commentaries of the Lincoln/Belmont library copy has glitches. The glitches made it difficult to play through the glitches at the time I listened to both of the commentaries and they were very informative. The Monster Tracks, as well as, Karloff: The Gentle Monster are also very informative. The main cast regarding the principal characters they had portrayed did a very good job, especially in reference to how Karloff had portrayed the monster as being sympathetic and to Colin Clive who had portrayed the tormented Henry Frankenstein.

"Fee-Fye-Foe-Fum!"_____ Even if you happen to be one of the world's most rabid/jaded horror-movie freaks, I'd confidently say that (for a mad scientist/monster picture) Frankenstein (which is now 80+ years old) is still a film that's quite capable of giving you chills & thrills that not even modern-day horror can satisfactorily deliver._____ Featuring some truly impressive sets, superb cinematography and solid direction by James Whale, Frankenstein (which just drips with dark & gloomy atmosphere) is, undoubtedly, an undisputed classic gem of Gothic horror._____ Believe me, when the viewer gets their first look at the re-animated Frankenstein monster, this has got to be one of the most awesome moments ever captured on screen in horror-movie history._____ Loosely adapted for the screen from the novel of the same name...... Now, I don't mean to sound sexist here - But, it truly amazes me that such a story as this was penned, not by a man, but by a woman. Only 21 at the time, like, what could've possibly been going on in young Mary Shelley's head (back in the year 1818) to have prompted this girl to write such a macabre story as this?_____ With a running time of only 70 minutes, I sure got a kick out of this film's priceless "Word of Warning" opening sequence.
