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.
