Pioneering horror - Frankenstein review by Viewer,RowG

Spoiler Alert
28/10/2020

It's such a classic it's difficult to review but my initial impressions were a. a stark contrast between moments of great drama and awfully stagey dialogue. b. overuse of the silhouette against a bright horizon c. the empathy you feel for Karloff's "monster" and d. the utter incongruity of the three ancilliary characters (the fiance, the spivvy friend, and the father). This comedy father is also a prominent character in Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, although in the latter he is less of a bumbling half wit and more a figure of old fashioned righteousness. In fact, I became overly preoccupied by this father figure because his script makes a mistake and asks why Dr Frankenstein is working away in a windmill (which is actually where he dies not where he revives the body parts).
