Frankenstein Posters

There comes a moment in every man's life when he has to ask himself: just how on earth did Mary Shelley's Thing-Without-A-Name become the distorted blood-thirsty monster we know as Frankenstein? Has nobody ever read the book? Ah, well... I'll be honest: I am not a big fan of Frankenstein, the monster, and I think the original Universal film was pure rubbish saved by Boris Karloff's performance (come on, the whole film is based on the idiotic plot device known as ABNORMAL BRAIN). That said, I love the concept of Frankenstein with everything it involves including the string of trash-to-the-bone films and posters it has inspired. Just look at that Frankenstein vs. Baragon poster at the bottom of this post! Is it genius or what? You will find much more of that in what follows. Enjoy!
