It’s Alive! IT’S ALIVE!! Join your horror hosts Kim & Jon as they embark on the next monsterific segment of The Graveyard Smash podcast series, beginning with The Universal Monster Classic Frankenstein (1931).
For over 200 years, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus has haunted horror fans with its grim, ghoulish exploration of life and death. Boris Karloff cemented the iconic look of the monster in a performance that has never been topped! Shelley’s novel was the birth of the world’s greatest horror story, but James Whale’s 1931 talkie marked the creation of a truly legendary monster.
We’ve finally made our way into the world of mad scientists, sympathetic villains, and legacy defining monster makeup! Dracula (1931) may have introduced the world the to creatures of the night, but Frankenstein(released the same damn year!) kicked the Universal Classic Monsters into high gear and gave us a monster that’s as punk rock as they come. Hate Living. Love Frank 🤘⚡💀
