“It’s alive!” The film that ignited Universal Pictures’s monster movie genre, and adapted from Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel, the hubristic Dr. Frankenstein reanimates a corpse who wreaks havoc on a small Bavarian town. With an unforgettable performance from Boris Karloff as the Monster, Frankenstein is a cautionary tale of a god-like creation gone terribly awry.
