When the monsters are better friends to you than the people is that a sign that the monsters aren’t bad guys or that you’ve become one of the monsters?

15 Best Monster Movies of the 20th Century

From a certain perspective, monster movies might not seem to be as relevant during monstrous times. But in an age when our fears seem larger than life and the world constantly seems as though it’s on the brink of collapse, the best examples of the genre can almost assume a documentary-like authenticity, reflecting our reality as vividly as vérité ever could.15. “Spring” (2015)
Unfolding like “Before Sunrise” and “An American Werewolf in London” were spliced together by a mad scientist, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s “Spring” is a cautionary tale about the perils of falling in love with a sultry stranger during an impromptu getaway to the Adriatic Sea. Sure, the fling could work out just fine, but there’s also a chance — however slight — that she might be a 2,000-year-old mutant shapeshifter cursed to spend eternity impregnating herself with the sperm of random victims in order to prevent turning into an octopus… or something. Honestly, the mythology behind Nadia Hilker’s man-eating character is hard to keep straight, but her unstable genetic situation opens the door to all sorts of pungently vivid practical effects (the best of which involve some very slimy tentacles), and the actress plays the deeply conflicted chimera with such incredible conviction that you can’t wait to see what awful thing she might transform into next.
14. “Monsters” (2010)
But what does the world look like after the alien invasion? After the fire in the sky, the interlopers arriving, the attack, the war, the fall? After, well, the monsters arrive and make something even more terrifying than the seeming worst — global war — their raison d’être: They ain’t leaving. In Gareth Edwards’ feature debut, we open on a world forever changed by the previous arrival of those titular monsters, long after the battles have been fought and lost, but not nearly long enough for anyone to forget what the world was like before. Stuck between the U.S. and Mexico — talk about a border control issue — the quarantined zone is a fearful reminder of everything people still don’t know, and everything that could be threatened. As seemingly cliched characters like The Cynical Reporter (Scoot McNairy) and The Silly Rich Girl (Whitney Able) are tossed together, the full scope of the terror and fear blossoms, made all the more jarring by what we already know, that the monsters are real. Part adventure story, part nightmare, “Monsters” eventually flips back on itself, allowing humanity and its own flaws to be laid bare, just as our human characters are revealing themselves to be perhaps the last generation worth saving. The monsters light up the night, but the fear can’t ever abate. 
13. “It Follows” (2015)
True, the monster that stalks Jay and her friends takes on a variety of grotesque forms and isn’t any one thing, but this is precisely what makes it so terrifying. What follows and haunts isn’t just something sinister and deadly, it’s the past. We might try and suppress our darkest secrets, but grief and trauma persist and force us to reconcile what we don’t want to face. “It Follows” has been described as everything from an allegory on sexual abuse to a commentary on STIs, but it also exposes the monsters we bury deep inside, which constantly threaten to devour and upset everything and everyone we touch. 
12. “Colossal” (2017)
With nowhere else to go, recent New Yorker Gloria (Anne Hathaway) trudges back to her parents’ abandoned, small-town home, hoping she’ll disappear; instead of achieving literary greatness, she’s spent her years in the city drunk, under-employed, and dependent on her boyfriend (Dan Stevens). Yet Spanish writer-director Nacho Vigalondo has ludicrous plans for our heroine, who – like everyone – can magnify the importance of her own personal woes (we are our own worst monsters). If she sets foot in a local park at a certain time, a stories-tall kaiju mutant materializes in downtown Seoul; her friend-turned-employer, Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), has a robot as his South Korean avatar. As Gloria attempts to make amends and take responsibility for her terrifying global footprint, Oscar bullies her into submission, threatening to end innocent lives across the globe. “Colossal” only made $4.5 million in theaters, which is regrettable, because movies about combatting self-loathing and misogyny rarely accompany such gaudy, popcorn-friendly visuals. 
11. “Attack the Block” (2011)
 “Moses! Moses! Moses!” More than just a star-making opportunity for John Boyega or a desperately needed alternative for people who were sick of watching “The Ten Commandments” every Passover, Joe Cornish’s sci-fi delight is an alien invasion movie that earns a spot on this list by blowing a hole right through the usual genre tropes. The antic story of a South London street gang who find themselves warding off the end of the world from the upper floors of their council estate, “Attack the Block” boasts such a deep roster of memorable characters that it could probably leave the extra-terrestrial threat to our imaginations. But it doesn’t. On the contrary, Cornish leans into the challenge, whipping up a rabid army of space apes that are way too gnarly to keep off-screen. Covered in spiky black fur that doesn’t reflect any light, and fronted by rows of fluorescent blue teeth that glow in the dark, these creatures are almost as cool as the people who fight to stop them, Moses and his crew risking their lives to save a planet that has never done enough to protect kids like them.
10. “Cloverfield” (2008)
 “Cloverfield” arrived rather early into J.J. Abrams’ Hollywood takeover, but none of his other projects — either before or since — have so perfectly embodied his strengths as a showman. Beginning with a surprise trailer before “Transformers,” Abrams’ greatest mystery box hatched a monster so compelling that we’re still wondering about it today, as the “Cloverfield” name alone proved enough to spawn an ongoing series of spinoffs. Of course, Matt Reeves deserves his own share of credit for directing the thing, the future “Apes” filmmaker tapping into post-9/11 trauma and the rise of digital video to create a found-footage masterpiece that’s resourceful and spectacular in equal measure. Sure, the human characters are kind of dumb, but the monster disposes of them all in due time, leaving behind only pixelated memories and the splash of something shiny in the distance. Shame about the Time Warner Center, though.
9. “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” (2008)
If the first “Hellboy” is a nice little appetizer for Mike Mignola’s comic book world, the sequel is a full-blown 10-course feast. Still the best and most beautiful movie that Guillermo del Toro has ever made, “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” ups the ante on the original in a way that superhero franchises no longer seem capable of doing. Not only is the motley crew at the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense a lot richer and more detailed in this installment, but the supernatural world beneath New York City is absolutely teeming with unforgettable monsters. From the savage little tooth fairies that swarm around Hellboy’s team, to the forest god that sprouts along the base of the Brooklyn Bridge, to the mechanical Golden Army itself, the movie is like the pages of del Toro’s famous notebook come to life in living color. There’s more wicked imagination in that market scene alone than there is in most entire fantasy series. Yeah, it’s sad that del Toro was never able to make a third chapter, but where the hell could he possibly have gone from here?
8. “Godzilla” (2014)
It may not be the king of all monster movies, but the sheer scope and scale of this reboot was the first in a great long while to do what films of its kind should: make us humans look utterly insignificant in the face of its massive kaiju. It certainly helps that Godzilla’s supporting cast included the likes of Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Bryan Cranston, and David Strathairn, but “Monsters” director Gareth Edwards was wise to ensure that none of them stole this movie’s namesake’s thunder. And how could they? Godzilla is envisioned here as a city-destroying (and, when the occasion calls for it, -saving) entity whom all of us are powerless to stop. All we can really do is follow Watanabe’s directive: let them fight. 
7. “The Village” (2004)
It’s no spoiler to say that the real monsters in “The Village” don’t live in the woods. M. Night Shyamalan’s most underrated film — and the one that began turning public opinion against him — suffered from the fact that viewers who went out of their way to figure out the ending in advance were able to do so, but its joys don’t arise from the twists and turns of its narrative. Rather, they circle around Roger Deakins’ lush visuals, the vividly unsettling atmosphere of the village itself, and a trio of exceptional performances courtesy of Joaquin Phoenix, Adrien Brody, and Bryce Dallas Howard. Those hooded, wolf-like creatures lurking in the woods are as evocative as they are frightful, which is why the film’s detractors are partially right — “The Village” is so haunting as is that it never needed a surprise ending.
6. “The Descent” (2005)
It says a lot that the subterranean creatures that eventually appear in “The Descent” almost feel like a relief. Watching characters being hunted down by horrifying mutants with night vision is what we sign up for when we plop down for a good scare; nearly passing out from holding your breath while watching the women wriggle through an impossibly small passages while cave exploring is not. But the taut suspense that the film’s early half builds by introducing very real stakes allows the eventual discovery of cannibalistic creatures to pay off in spades. Like so many of the best horror films, “The Descent” knows how much we fear what lies waiting in the dark, and pairs it perfectly with the fear of being stranded and swallowed by the vastness of nature. And it’s enough to make you never want to leave your couch again.
5. “The Cabin in the Woods” (2012)
Is there anything more joyous and horrifying than that cacophony of gore that explodes during the brilliant elevator scene in “The Cabin in the Woods?” Joss Whedon didn’t just subvert every horror movie cliche for a laugh (god bless Chris Hemsworth as the gorgeous blonde “mimbo”), but he gave everything a dark and delicious twist worthy of a “Black Mirror” episode. “Cabin in the Woods” calls up a slew of memorable monsters, including the chilling revelation of endless cubes filled with snarling terrors that would keep H.P. Lovecraft awake at night. But scarier still, are Sigourney Weaver and the workers, who place bets on who will die first and shrug at the slaughter as necessary collateral damage.
4. “The Babadook” (2014)
One of the most harrowingly accurate movies ever made about living with grief and the guilt that comes with it, Jennifer Kent’s “The Babadook” leverages dozens of traditional horror tropes into a wrenching portrait of the human pain to which no other genre has such immediate access. Anchored by Essie Davis’ unforgettable turn as a single mother who’s still living in the shadow of her husband’s death six (the result of a car accident on their way to the delivery room), Kent’s brilliant debut feature uses terror as a way to plunge deeper into its heroine’s heartache. The Babadook itself is a marvel, the amorphous creature popping out from the pages of a mysterious children’s book to wreak all sorts of Rorschach-like havoc on the poor Australian woman who brought it into her home. Yes, the monster is a clear metaphor for depression, but few films have so viscerally realized the residual agony of loss, and how it can never be fully extinguished.
3. “The Mist” (2007)
Once upon a time, before stuff like “It” and “Gerald’s Game” clouded up the middle ground, there were really only two kinds of Stephen King adaptations: The ones that disgraced their source material, and the ones that elevated the author’s novels and short stories to stunning new heights. Frank Darabont’s “The Mist,” much like Frank Darabont’s “The Shawshank Redemption,” was (and remains) definitely one of the latter. The action is confined to the sterile confines of a Maine supermarket, where local shoppers find themselves trying to make sense of the thick fog that has enveloped their town (and to survive the profoundly wretched monsters that live inside the impenetrable white clouds). As the tension grows between Thomas Jane’s decent-hearted painter and Marcia Gay Harden’s lunatic doomsayer, the film rots into a morality play about hope that eventually starts to feel like a grim response to “Children of Men.” The unforgettable final scene, which even King himself admits improves on his novella, cements “The Mist” as an unflinching battle for the dark heart of humanity — one that can’t be so easily won. Of course, none of it would cut so deep if not for the nightmare-inducing creature design. From the hideous spider monsters (and their acid-tinged webs) to the towering colossus that stands above the clouds, these living phobias are the rare movie beasts that are even scarier on screen than they are in your imagination.  
2. “Under the Skin” (2014)
There are many kinds of monsters, some more overt than others. And though one could easily argue that Scarlett Johansson’s unnamed alien isn’t one at all, there’s no denying that it’s she who leads unsuspecting randos into a liquid black void of a room where they’re punished for their horniness with an otherworldly death sentence. As Mica Levi’s beautifully unsettling score plays each of these lambs off to the slaughter, a troubling thought emerges: Who’s to say we wouldn’t be naive enough to follow her into that room? The actress practically specializes in either disembodied or not-quite-human performances at this point — not only here but in “Lucy,” “Her,” and even “The Jungle Book” — and reflecting troubling truths back at us.
1. “The Host” (2006)
The origins of Bong Joon-ho’s “The Host” flow back to the deformed fish in the filmmaker’s beloved Han River. The monster itself, which Bong and his team modeled after Steve Buscemi’s feral performance in “Fargo,” is a perfect synecdoche of Bong’s film: thrilling, silly, and unpredictable until to bitter end. This is where audiences first discovered the joy the director takes in conducting beautiful symphonies of not-so-bright characters, and the moral ambiguity that such perfect idiots tend to leave in their wake — we’re oddly grounded with the movie’s amphibious creation, who rampages through a story that would rather obliterate the line between good and evil than try to draw one of its own. Bong is not a politically subtle filmmaker, but seldom has he been sophisticated in his exploration of South Korea’s cultural identity (and the impact that outside forces may continue to exert upon it) in a film that feels as playful as it is deadly serious. 





The 50 best monster movies

Our biggest challenge in constructing this list was deciding exactly what constituted a ‘monster’. We resolved early on to rule out zombies, which are basically just vitally challenged people, and vampires, largely because that genre’s good for a whole separate feature on its own, and we wanted to make room for all the killer rabbits, killer plants, killer fish and killer dessert foods this list demanded. Friendly, sentient aliens like ET and Chewbacca were also left out, and we’ll call anyone who disagrees with that a racist.

46. Pumpkinhead

Appears in: Pumpkinhead (1988), Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings (1994), Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes (2006), Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud (2007)
Scariest moment: Thinking he’s shot Pumpkinhead dead, Joel (John D’Aquino) does what all idiotic characters in horror movies do: He checks the seemingly lifeless body. Then, the monster impales Joel with his own rifle, once again giving validity to the old phrase, “Leave well enough alone.”

45. The Pack

Appears in: The Pack (2010)
Scariest moment: Charlotte (Émilie Dequenne) hangs upside down as the humanoid cannibal monsters crawl out of the ground and feed on the person hanging next to her.

44. The Blob

Appears In: The Blob (1958), The Blob (1988)
Scariest Moment: In the 1988 remake, a cook, working in a diner’s dirty kitchen, reaches into the sink to unclog it when the blob shoots out of the drain, hugs his face, and pulls his entire body through the drain. Excruciating pain, anyone?

43. Quetzacoatl

Appears in: Q: The Winged Serpent (1982)

Appears in: Critters (1986), Critters 2: The Main Course (1988), Critters 3 (1991), Critters 4 (1992)
Scariest moment: In this case, “scariest” is used loosely. A more apt word would be “funniest,” or “best scene in which the filmmakers threw their arms in the air and said, ‘Fuck it.'” During the climax of 1986’s Critters, two of the titular beasties are about to bum-rush a house, but there’s a problem. “They have weapons,” one says in their indecipherable language, right before a woman blows the other Critter away with a shotgun.

41. The Crawling Eye

Appears in: The Trollenberg Terror (1958)

40. The Toilet Ghoul

Appears in: Ghoulies II (1988)
Scariest moment: The most unlikable character in Ghoulies II (which says a lot) sits down to, um, unload in the bathroom of a trailer.

Scariest moment: Onboard a freighter loaded with sugar, tons of humongous ants attack the crew in a full-scale massacre. 

38. The Bugs

Appear in: Starship Troopers (1997)
Scariest moment: An endless army of pissed-off alien insects charges toward the steadily firing soldiers’ bunker.

37. Clover

Appears in: Cloverfield (2008)
Scariest moment: A small group of survivors, flying away in a helicopter, shout in joy as they watch the monster get pummeled by Army missiles, but then, seconds later, “Clover” jumps into the frame, out of nowhere, and smacks the ‘copter down to the ground.

36. Pyramid Head

Appears in: Silent Hill (2006)
Scariest moment: With sirens ringing, Silent Hill’s petrified churchgoers watch in horror as Pyramid Head grabs a young woman, lifts her in the air, and tears all of her skin off in one swoop, as if her flesh is a tabelecloth and she’s the table. 

35. Crowley Demon

Appears in: Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (2008)
Scariest moment: The transformation of Professor Gordon Crowley (Robert Englund) into the obese, repulsive demon, during which tentacles spring out of his back and Crowley’s face inflates like a fleshy balloon.

34. Cyclops

Appears in: The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)
Scariest moment: Fleeing desperately, Sinbad and his crew hurl spears at a very angry Cyclops as the one-eyed monster chases them down a beach.

33. The Rancor

Appears in: Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1983)
Scariest moment: Pinned against a closed gate and thinking that his time is up, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) watches in panicked horror as the Rancor barrels toward him.

32. Imhotep

Appears in: The Mummy (1932)
Scariest moment: After waking up, the reanimated corpse exits its coffin, lumbers over to the table where researcher Ralph Norton (Bramwell Thatcher) is seated, and slowly snatches the scroll off it. Norton, naturally, screams like a little girl.

31. The Dog Gargoyle
Appears in: Ghostbusters (1984)
Scariest moment: Ruining an otherwise enjoyable apartment party, the ferocious beast chases Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) out of the high-rise building and right into the glass wall of a swanky restaurant.

30. Gwoemul

Appears in: The Host (2006)
Scariest moment: The creature’s forceful introduction, when the oversized water-dweller leaps out of the Han River and decimates its way through a crowd of shell-shocked humans.

29. The Skeletons

Appear in: Jason and the Argonauts (1963)
Scariest moment: Armed with swords and shields, a small army of combatant skeletons attacks Jason and his cohorts near the edge of a mountain top.

28. The Terminator

Appears in: The Terminator (1984)
Scariest moment: In the form of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the robot assassin in The Terminator (1980) warns a police officer “I’ll be back,” a quote that’s been rendered corny today but was rather chilling at the time of the movie’s release. 

27. Jason Voorhees

Appears in: Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), Friday the 13th Part III (1982), Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985), Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986), Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988), Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989), Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), Jason X (2002), Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
Scariest moment: Oddly enough, Jason’s scariest moment happens long before he ever finds that hockey mask or even makes his first kill. It comes at the end of 1980’s Friday the 13th, when, after decapitating the film’s murderer, Mrs. Voorhees (Betsy Palmer), final girl Alice (Adrienne King) tries to relax on a drifting canoe; seemingly about to enter a peaceful dreamland, Alice suffers one more shock as the rotted corpse of young Jason rises out of the water and pulls her into Crystal Lake. 

26. The Graboids

Appears in: Tremors (1990), Tremors II: Aftershocks (1996), Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001), Tremors 4: The Legend Begins (2004)
Scariest moment: Showing their strategic brainpower, the Graboids dig a huge ditch in the path of bulldozer, causing the machine to wreck.

25. Count Dracula

Appears in: Dracula (1931), Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
Scariest moment: Dracula (Bela Lugosi), holding a lit candlestick, stands in front of a staircase covered in thick cobwebs and invites Renfield (Dwight Frye), as well as future generations of horror movie fans, to walk with him up the stairs. Clearly, the destination isn’t anywhere positive. 

24. Cesare

Appears in: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
Scariest moment: The first time Dr. Caligari (Werner Krauss) opens up Cesare’s (Conrad Veidt) coffin to reveal the black-eyed, white-faced, slumbering ghoul resting within. 

23. Jaws

Appears in: Jaws (1975), Jaws 2 (1978), Jaws 3-D (1983), Jaws: The Revenge (1987)
Scariest moment: As Brody (Roy Scheider) and Quint (Robert Shaw) attempt to bring a ripped-up cage onto their boat, the Orca, the massive Great White suddenly pops out of the water and smashes its head on the vessel, causing the Orca to tip.

Scariest moment: Rising up behind a scared shitless Kristy Cotton (Ashley Laurence), Pinhead cryptically informs her, in his muddied up, marble-mouthed Darth Vader voice, “We have such sights to show you.”

21. The Baby in Eraserhead

Appears in: Eraserhead (1977)
Scariest moment: The sight of the sperm-like creature, sores and all, crying in agony as it struggles to breathe.

20. The Pterodactyls

Appear in: The Mist (2007)
Scariest moment: After being shot, one of the wounded monsters approaches little Billy Drayton (Nathan Gamble) while the boy’s back is turned and opens its mouth in a get-in-my-belly roar. 

19. The T-Rex

Appears in: Jurassic Park (1993), Jurassic Park: The Lost World (1997), Jurassic Park III (2001)
Scariest moment: A jeep’s rearview mirror shows the standard “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear” as the T-Rex’s face roars up close and personally into the mirror. 

18. Freddy Krueger

Appears in: A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge (1985), A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988), A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child (1989), Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare (1991), Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994), Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
Scariest moment: While teenage mental patient Jennifer (Penelope Sudrow) watches TV in the asylum, Freddy suddenly appears on the talk show she’s checking out; when she walks closer to the screen, Freddy’s exaggeratedly long arms extended out of the tube’s sides and grab her as Krueger’s head pushes out of the television’s top. Before ramming her head into the screen, he says, “This is it, Jennifer: Your big break in TV. Welcome to prime time, bitch!” 

17. King Kong

Appears in: King Kong (1933)
Scariest moment: Kong’s unforgettable introduction, when Ann Darrow (Fay Wray), tied up as a helpless prisoner, screams in terror as the massive Kong pokes his head out from behind some trees. 

16. The Phantom

Appears in: The Phantom of the Opera (1925)
Scariest moment: While being held captive in the Phantom’s underground hideout, Christine (Mary Philbin) slowly walks up behind him as he’s playing the piano, pulls his mask off, and reveals the Phantom’s hideous, skeletal face.

15. The Creeper

Appears in: Jeepers Creepers (2001), Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)
Scariest moment: Casually driving down the highway, Trish (Gina Phillips) and Darry (Justin Long) see the Creeper dumping what appears to be a body wrapped in bloody bedsheets down a large pipe; then, seconds later, the Creeper turns and stares at them.

14. The Thing in the Crate

Appears in: Creepshow (1982)
Scariest moment: An arrogant grad student, not believing his professor’s story about the monster in the crate, foolishly investigates and gruesomely meets the beast face to face.

13. Pale Man

Appears in: Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)
Scariest moment: Pale Man grabs two eyeballs off of a plate, stuffs them into his palms, and opens his hands in front of the eye socket area, suddenly able to see the little girl who’s disturbed his slumber. 

12. Gill-man

Appears in: The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
Scariest moment: As the sexy Kay Lawrence takes a nice, casual swim, the creature stalks her from underneath the water, swimming parallel to Kay and ogling her.

Appear in: The Brood (1979)
Scariest moment: In the middle of an otherwise calm grade school classroom, two of the evil kids beat their teacher to death with toy hammers.

7. Wolf Man

Appears in: The Wolf Man (1941), Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), House of Frankenstein (1944), Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

6. The Humanoid Crawlers

Appear in: The Descent (2005), The Descent: Part 2 (2009)
Scariest moment: The first clear, in-your-face shot of the monsters comes through a character’s video camera, set in Night Vision mode, that pans across the cave and reveals a crawler standing inches behind another character.

5. The Thing

Appears in: The Thing (1982)
Scariest moment: When Copper (Richard Dysart) tries to resuscitate Norris (Charles Hallahan) with a defibrilator, Norris’ chest caves in, giving way to massive fangs that bite Copper’s arms off at the elbows. Seconds later, a large, oozing, tarantula-like creature with Norris’ head jumps out of the open chest.

4. The Wicked Witch of the West

2. Count Orlok

Appears in: Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Son of Frankenstein (1938), The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942), House of Frankenstein (1944), Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), House of Dracula (1945), Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
Scariest moment: The monster’s scariest moment is, tragically, the result of its good intentions gone terribly wrong. Doctor Frankenstein’s creation comes across a little girl picking flowers alongside a lake. Seeing how much fun she’s having tossing petals into the water, the monster naively similarly picks her up and throws her into the lake. Unfortunately, the girl can’t swim. 
The basic concept behind Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, famous adapted by director James Whale for his 1931 genre classic of the same name, is the ghastliest of ideas: a monster created from various parts of long-buried corpses. As brilliantly played by the great Boris Karloff, Frankenstein’s monster is so unforgettably chilling that it’s easy to overlook the fact that a figure made up of different body parts should look more disjointed and piecemeal.
Still, Karloff’s incarnation of the walking dead man achieves a distinct level of horror through the monster’s slightly human but mostly lifeless look. Injecting just the right amount of pathos into the character, Karloff disarms the viewer, leaving one prone to sympathizing with the beast (he just wants to be loved, after all) before doing something horrific (i.e., killing a little girl) or simply reverting back to his malevolent ways.
