It’s Alive!


In 1910, Edison Studios released the first motion-picture adaptation of Shelley’s story.

Henry Frankenstein: Look! It’s moving. It’s alive. It’s alive… It’s alive, it’s moving, it’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive, it’s alive!

Victor Moritz: Henry – In the name of God!

Henry Frankenstein: Oh, in the name of God! Now I know what it feels like to be God!”

– ‘Frankenstein’, 1931.

This post is a shout out to the writers and artists for bringing us these creatures, all of them fit to sit graveside with Frankenstein’s Monster- who named himself  Adam but was called a ” Devil ” or a  ” Fiend ” by his creator.

Our modern creatures have been treated a bit more kindly by their creators and THAT is a good thing.
