Frankenstein movie clips: BUY THE MOVIE: Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: CLIP DESCRIPTION: As the Monster (Boris Karloff) is struck by lightning, Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) exclaims his achievement and his God-like feeling of creation. FILM DESCRIPTION: Still regarded as the definitive film version of Mary Shelley's classic tale of tragedy and horror, Frankenstein made unknown character actor Boris Karloff a star and created a new icon of terror. Along with the highly successful Dracula, released earlier the same year, it launched Universal Studio's golden age of 1930s horror movies. The film's greatness stems less from its script than from the stark but moody atmosphere created by director James Whale; Herman Rosse's memorable set designs, particularly the fantastic watchtower laboratory, featuring electrical equipment designed by Kenneth Strickfaden; the creature's trademark look from makeup artist Jack Pierce, who required Karloff to don pounds of makeup and heavy asphalt shoes to create the monster's unique lurching gait; and Karloff's nuanced performance as the tormented and bewildered creature. Frankenstein was greeted with screams, moans, and fainting spells upon its initial release, obliging Universal to add a disclaimer in which Edward Van Sloan advises the faint of heart to leave the theater immediately. If they don't: "Well...we've warned you." Director James Whale was memorably embodied by Ian McKellen in the Oscar-winning 1998 biopic Gods and Monsters.

Comments from Youtube

silentf0e : Me after successfully building my first custom gaming PC

Erik Scott : Everyone, Frankenstein is the name of the creator, not the monster!

NEW YORK SPORTS FAN : Incredible scene. Instilled into pop culture for eternity. The famous "It's Alive!" line has been echoing in multiple pop culture films and shows for decades. A legacy that will never be forgotten. Frankenstein!

Mike Basil : Happy 200th Anniversary (1818-2018) for Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. "IT'S ALIVE!!!"

Alexander Ockenden : When the code runs with no errors.

ENTERTAINMENT BUFF : For decades, a key line in this scene was censored in reissue prints of the film. "Now I know what it's like to be God" was obscured with a thunderclap because it was considered blasphemous. Nice to see it restored!

SmeatPlays : Me after watching Jon come back to life

sanjay sood : Quite possibly the greatest scene and dialogue in the entire history of science fiction movies.

tripp cory : Frankenstein was actually pretty lucky his family and friends came to see the creation. In the book he did it alone, so when it started to cause trouble, he tried to handle it by himself (with disastrous results). But only because everybody found out about the monster and creation did he survive.

al gregorio : I watch this every day because Is my favorite movie

MrHulltech2 : I guess even Frankenstein's monster needed 1.21 Gigawatts to bring him to life , like it took to  send the Delorean back into the future.

Nick Pollard : I think it's fascinating how things change when it comes to offence, even if this was created 85 years ago. Frankenstein's last line here ("In the name of God! Now I know how it feels to BE God!") was very controversial.

Sandra Dewell : boris karloff as the monster was great

You literally can't : I could write an entire essay on why Dr. Frankenstein WASN'T insane.

tread_well _frank : In the original book written by Mary Shelley, early 1800's . there are two things that standout: sympathy for the wretched monster yet no criticism of Dr. Frankenstein. even when he's a coward in a court case that hangs an innocent friend for strangulation of a child when he new it was his monster. that did it also there is a confusion of physical beauty with goodness. i recommend the book highly. she wrote her first version at 18 yrs of age ! and it was great. I never read her second version written some decades later. either way its called "Frankenstein, or the New Prometheus. that is the full title. its easy to figure out why the Prometheus comparison to Dr. Frankenstein's feeling like god.

Versus Christus : Had to read the book for school, I watched this movie immediately after. They're different but both good, but the book is AMAZING!

clarlil : Frankenstein is an amazing book. I will never forget it


Noel Ortiz : Powerful scene.

Maximillian Sukiman : watching this after the new Overwatch Junkenstein update

lastlife0726 : After about an hour of suffering, I managed to fix some BS problems and open Google Chrome again. I found this clip to celebrate. I swear to god, if I ever find whoever invented Trojan viruses...

Mike Minto : Back then Frankenstein, the wolf man, and Dracula were the horror masters then Jason Freddy and Michael replace them now we have the Nun, Anabelle, and hereditary

sgtfancyyams : How do the effects in this film STILL hold up?! It's mind-boggling.

Rolyn Georges : I absolutely love this scene especially when he says "Now I know what it's like to be God." I don't know why Many people were offended by it. I'm Christian and I don't take offense to it cuz I know it's just a great movie and I love it.

nvm0 : wonderful movie. So simple, it's marvelous

John Stanly : I just finished watching the movie, and man is it great. I read the book my freshman year in highschool, and since I remembered it earlier today (since it's October and all), I decided to watch it. Good movie, but the book is better. Frankenstein, and Jurassic park are two great movies and I love the moral: YOU CAN'T PLAY GOD PEOPLE!

Dysfunctional Bat : There was a thunderstorm the other day when I saw this movie and at this scene there was like a loud thunder crack and it was awesome cause it fit right into this scene

menslady125 : Castle of my favorite sound effects!

Sarah Vilela : Oh yeah... It's alive.

Dracula Wolf Man Frankenstein : It's Alive!!! (8x) Frankenstein (1931) Boris Karloff As Frankenstein

Green Sky 17 : You can't put new wine into old sacks !

TPOrchestra : The was a great commercial in the sixties that parodied this scene. I think it was for Turtle Wax, and the Colin Clive imitator screams "It's alive! It's alive!" when he sees his car's finish after an application of the product. The actor was a dead ringer for Colin Clive, so much so that I wondered if it was Clive himself, just very well preserved in his sixties. (Boris Karloff, older than Clive, was still active at the time) I wasn't aware at the time that Clive had died so young.

Douglas Snyder : And who would have guessed that over 40 years later, that same lab equipment was used for Young Frankenstein.

Super Plush Bros : Believe it or not but Frankenstein in this movie is my moms great grandpa

flashkraft : Rare footage of a Monsanto Scientific research team at work.

SIMOPARAS : In a 15 years this quote is 100 yo and this film also ..amazing

Brian Carlow : Great clip wanna make his "Its Alive" my ringtone

xenomorph warrior : All this crazy laboratory stuff Is done by a technician.

CashNasty Forhead : Now go read the book. It really is better.

Xxx_MusikIsMySoul_xxX I like food : Me after getting rid of a phone and computer virus in two seconds

Luka Basanovic : One of my favorite movies.Incredible masterpiece by Boris Karloff and Colin Clive.1930s ,1940s and 1950s are best movie eras

Charles De Rosas : When you take viagra

Pete Staszkiw : Did you know that The lightning is the same sound as the emperor eleltricuting Luke in episode VI

Hall Family : So when the monster turns five and creator should say it’s a five ‘‘tis a five

Raymond Steen : Yes, the creative's alive, Dr. Frankenstein!! You sure as hell did it, alright! But you'd never be God !!!

Carlos Chulito : How did they do those electric special effects in 1939

Khadela Mágica : This is a big untasteful joke towards Mary Shelley. Frankenstein is the creator(Victor Frankenstein) of the monster. The monster was never given an actual name. This is because he wasn't supposed to exist(he was product of the sin of a HUMAN that created life). In addition, no one knew what Victor had done when he created the monster. It makes no sense that men were witnessing his experiment.

Andrew Mayrant : Frankenstein is Really a Science Fiction monster! Not a Horror monster . That is because he was created by a mad sentencetist , not by a supernatural incident.

DuckMcMac The original : 2018 anyone? And any ducks in the duck squad here?
