The First Film Adaptation of “Frankenstein”

This is kind of amazing, at least to me. Filmed by Edison Studios in 1910(!), I first first heard about this production when I was in the 4th or 5th grade. I was kind of big into classic horror films as a kid, and there was a book in my elementary school library that about horror movie history, and it had a still photo of The Monster in this film. I always found it weirdly creepy and fascinating, so I was excited to find this on YouTube.

I know it seems a little kitschy now, but imagine what it must’ve looked like to audiences 102 years ago!
