James Whale, Frankenstein, 1931.

Dr. Frankenstein creates a monster from various posthumous ‘donors’ and combines them into a creature, to which he wishes to bestow life. The film centres on this monster and his struggle in this ‘life after death’.  We all know the story, but it’s never been better told than in James Whale’s supreme film. A rare chance to enjoy the definitive horror classic, which embedded Boris Karloff as the doomed monster in our popular culture. Introduced by film historian and writer Dr. Gail Nina Anderson.
