    James Whale / USA 1931 / 1h10m / Digital
    Cast: Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Mae Clarke, John Boles, Dwight Frye.
    Karloff gives one of the great performances of all time in this stark, solid, impressively stylish film. The film's great imaginative coup is to show the monster 'growing up' in all too human terms. First he is the innocent baby, reaching up to grasp the sunlight, then the joyous child, playing at throwing flowers into the lake with a little girl and finally, as he is progressively misjudged by the society that created him, the savage killer as whom he has been typecast.'From a review for timeout.com'
