Universal Pictures Home Entertainment releases Frankenstein to 4K UHD on October 11, 2022. James Whale directed the film starring Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Mae Clarke, John Boles, Edward Van Sloan, and Frederick Kerr.
An unforgettable masterpiece, the original Frankenstein released in 1931, stars Karloff as the screen’s most tragic and iconic monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made. Tampering with life and death, Dr. Frankenstein (Clive) pieces together salvaged body parts to bring a human monster to life. The mad scientist’s dreams are shattered by his creation’s violent rage as the monster awakens to a world in which he is unwelcome. Featuring groundbreaking makeup by Jack Pierce, director Whale’s adaptation of Mary Shelley’s masterpiece novel blends themes of horror, isolation and compassion, and remains one of the most shocking movies of all time.
