Frankenstein

Now Playing Synopsis: Still regarded as the definitive film version of Mary Shelley's classic tale of tragedy and horror, Frankenstein made unknown character actor Boris Karloff a star and created a new icon of terror. Along with the highly successful Dracula, released earlier the same year, it launched Universal Studio's golden age of 1930s horror movies. The film's greatness stems less from its script than from the stark but moody atmosphere created by director James Whale; Herman Rosse's memorable set designs, particularly the fantastic watchtower laboratory, featuring electrical equipment designed by Kenneth Strickfaden; the creature's trademark look from makeup artist Jack Pierce, who required Karloff to don pounds of makeup and heavy asphalt shoes to create the monster's unique lurching gait; and Karloff's nuanced performance as the tormented and bewildered creature. Frankenstein was greeted with screams, moans, and fainting spells upon its initial release, obliging Universal to add a disclaimer in which Edward Van Sloan advises the faint of heart to leave the theater immediately. If they don't: "Well...we've warned you." Director James Whale was memorably embodied by Ian McKellen in the Oscar-winning 1998 biopic Gods and Monsters. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Cast: Colin Clive, Boris Karloff, Mae Clarke, John Boles, Dwight Frye, Edward Van Sloan Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Argento's Dracula 3D

Now Playing Synopsis: Bram Stoker's timeless tale of supernatural romance gets filtered through the lens of Italian horror legend Dario Argento in this lavish horror tale starring Thomas Kretschmann as the titular Count. Summoned to Transylvania by the reclusive Count Dracula, Passo Borgo librarian Jonathan Harker (Unax Ugalde) soon discovers that his beloved wife Mina (Marta Gastini) is in grave danger. The Count is determined to take Mina as his bride, and even the renowned vampire slayer Abraham Van Helsing (Rutger Hauer) may be powerless to stop him. Meanwhile, as a mysterious local woman (Asia Argento) falls under the Count's malevolent spell, Harker races to save Mina from a fate far worse than death. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Thomas Kretschmann, Asia Argento, Marta Gastini, Rutger Hauer, Unax Ugalde Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
