    I have a passion for everything Frankenstein! So here's the place to celebrate the universe of Mary Shelley's creation. Film stills, clips, photos, book covers, mags, illustrations, cartoons, toys,...whatever.
    I created this thread but I know not what it will become.

  7. I love the Karloff films. And even though it's bizarre and cheap, I also like Andy Warhol's Frankenstein (aka Flesh for Frankenstein) and I hope it eventually receives a legit 3-D blu-ray release.

    I saw that when it came out as a double bill with Blood For Dracula.
    Warhol had very little to do with them apparently.

    Yes they were in 3D (at a big cinema on Leicester Square, London).
    That particilar scene with the sqewered organ coming out of the screen made everyone laugh out loud!

    It's Bernie Wrightson's interpretation. Originally published by Marvel, I think, but republished by Dark Horse.

    I have the Dark Horse edition. It's a fabulous big format hardback with a lovely silver embossed canvas cover. The work that Wrightson did for the novel is amazing.

    Perhaps a stupid question, but at what point does Frankenstein's Monster just become known as "Frankenstein"?

    I would imagine in most movies it is called Frankenstein's Monster but the general public knows the creature as merely Frankenstein.
