Frankenstein The Monster

Updated on October 7, 2014

Frankenstein Pictures, Posters and Movies

This collection of Frankenstein pictures, posters and movies encompasses the history and sensation of this well known story of a favorite monster that we call, Frankenstein.

Frankenstein pictures are sometimes scary and frightening, but they always remind us of a confused character from the past. Even though we think of Frankenstein as the monster, he was actually the doctor who created the monster. Through the years of adapting the original book through movies and plays, we have come to know and accept this monster as Frankenstein.

The Real Frankenstein

Frankenstein, sometimes referred to as the first sci-fi novel was published in London by author Mary Shelley in 1818. The first edition was anonymous. The book tells the story of scientist, Dr. Frankenstein who fails at creating the perfect human life and instead produces a monster. Initally, though frightening in appearance, the monster appears to be a kind, gentle soul. It isn't until the monster is scorned by society and his creator, that he becomes vengeful and violent. Quite the interesting story.

      I had seen the Boris Karloff movie a couple of times, but I didn't get a chance to read the book until my 30s when it was required for a college course on women authors. The book touched me in a way that the movies have not. It made me feel empathy for the monster and I found myself wanting to defend him against humans. Poor, misunderstood monster!

      Karloff IS Frankenstein! Although he's not Dr Frankenstein, but the poor maltreated monster

      This reminds me of my creature from the black lagoon lens. You should check it out and see what you think.

      Great choice of images.

      Frankenstein's monster was the most misunderstood character in monster history. He really just wanted to be liked. Nice posters. Also thanks for liking one of my lenses.

      The first time I saw the movie, I didn't sleep for weeks. Frankenstein is mild compared to the scary movies today.
