Frankenstein - Supplement


While we try to cover as much as we can in our episodes, there's always more to see, hear, and read about a movie that can enhance your viewing experience. If you enjoyed our episode on Frankenstein, here's a few extra bits you might find interesting...


Episode 58: Frankenstein



In an episode we created with our own hands, we try to use our (criminal) brains to analyze the original Universal horror classic Frankenstein. We debate the responsibilities and motives of Henry Frankenstein, discuss the story's erasure of women from the act of creation, and point fingers at the film's true villains. Warning: Contains strong language, spoilers, and the old "disappearing cat trick."
