24 January 2003 | by (Pee Dee, SC) – See all my reviews

Included with Universal's excellent Frankenstein DVD. Film historian David J. Skal hosts this documentary about the 1931 classic. Filmmakers, film historians, and writers discuss the novel and its many dramatic and film incarnations (at least Universal's long series). Discussions include the influence of German impressionist filmmakers on Hollywood horror movies, make-up, and the actors. Sara Karloff, daughter of the actor, is one of the many interviewees.
