IT’S ALIVE! Welcome to HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… This is Episode 083. In this ultimate Frankensteinian episode, Jay of the Dead, Dr. Shock and Wolfman review the original Frankenstein (1931) and compare and contrast it with the most recent telling of this classic story, this year’s Frankenstein (2016) from Bernard Rose (the director of Candyman). We also discuss Mary Shelley’s original novel and several other adaptations of her work, including Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein. Wolfman also brings you a mini-review of last year’s Victor Frankenstein and Doc brings you a special tribute to Béla Lugosi.
Caution: We reveal major plot spoilers for both “Frankenstein” movies, as well as the original novel and some other versions of this story. If that’s too much for you … well … you’ve been warned!
