what is a Golem?

A Golem is an old Czech fairy tale that Mary Shelly stole and rewrote as a film called - Frankenstein. Yes, that is right Frankenstein is a rip-off - A fake, a fraud.

So now it is your duty to go a find out what the Czech fairy tale is about. Watch this film. It is about the Golem, (a story that has been passed from generation to generation), a creature that was created by a Jewish Rabbi......and if you have seen Frankenstein then you what else I am about to tell you.

Go watch this real Frankenstein movie
