FRANKENSTEIN (1931) with DRACULA (1931)

Presented by Count Gore De Vol!

Double Feature: FRANKENSTEIN (1931) with DRACULA (1931)

FRANKENSTEIN (1931)
“It’s alive! It’s alive!” Colin Clive’s Henry Frankenstein determines to create life itself, but proper brain procurement proves the sticking point. James Whale’s horror classic deviates wildly from Mary Shelley’s source novel — and film history is all the better for it. Boris Karloff poignantly conveys the Monster’s own terror and humanity beneath memorably grotesque makeup by Jack Pierce.

DRACULA (1931)
"I never drink…wine." Bela Lugosi stars as Count Dracula, the part that brought him undying fame, and started Universal on the path to becoming Hollywood's number one name in horror. Directed by Tod Browning, a master of the macabre from the silent cinema (most notably on several films with Lon Chaney), with exquisitely atmospheric camerawork by the great Karl Freund.
