Boris Karloff stars in Frankenstein as the screen’s most memorable monster, in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made. Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster (Karloff) out of lifeless body parts. Director James Whale’s adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel—which celebrates its 200-year anniversary in 2018—blended with Karloff’s compassionate portrayal of a creature groping for identity makes Frankenstein a masterpiece not only of the genre, but of all time. This screening is sponsored by the SF (Science Fiction/Speculative Fiction) Research Collective and IU Cinema.
