Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Mainstream Media's Portrayal of the Monster 1800 2000 1900 1850 2015 1950 The only resemblance this depiction of the monster has to that of the novel is the flowing black hair. Otherwise he appears to be a normal human, if not a fairly large human. Although this monster is not called Frankenstein, it does not fit the appearance or the personality of the monster of the novel. This is when lightning is first used to bring the monster to life. Apart from the blackened lips this monster appears the same as that in Karloff's film. Despite now having a name (Frankenstein) the monster is still dehumanized in this case by nolonger having any personality. Yet again being called "Frankenstein" this creaturelooks to be an overly simplifiedcaricature of Karloff's design.As well, this creature can do nomore than grunt and moan. Starting off as a normal man and slowly degenerating into a monster, this creature seems to have little in common with the monster from the novel. However this it is enraged at its creator for not helping when he is needed most. comparably to the monster of the novel. While the hair, lips and eyes are differentfrom the creature described in the novel, its personality is entirely the same.This movie is best known for being remarkably faithful to the novel,evenincluding a quote from Shelley's introduction to the novel at the beginning of the film. The only parallel in appearance thismonster has to the novel's monster is the black hair. Appearance aside, this television mini-series is even more accurate than"Mary Shelley's Frankenstein", giving even more specific details. In "Van Helsing" the monster's appearance is fairly accurate, yet he is nothing like his character in the novel. This monster becomes a slave for Dracula after Dracula kills Victor Frankenstein. He is also very docile and wants nothing more than to just be left alone. The creature in "I, Frankenstein" is barely recognizable as the monster with only a few scars across his face and body.In this film the monster despises Victor and kills Elizabeth. Victor chases him to the arctic, but succumbs to the harsh conditions. After this the events are entirely separate from what happens in the novel.

Hallmark's "Frankenstein" This is generally what isbrought to mind when one says Frankenstein. The design is strongly based off Karloff's creature and does nothing more than moan. This monster is mostly found in cartoons and costume stores. Modern Frankenstein
