[[caption-width-right:355:Frankenstein is the ''doctor''. You should ''know'' this.]]

''Frankenstein'' (full title: ''Frankenstein: A Modern Prometheus'') is a novel by Creator/MaryShelley, originally published in 1818, with a 1823 reprint without Shelley's involvement and a third edition in 1831, this time with significant edits from the author.

For more about the novel, see ''{{Literature/Frankenstein}}''.

This novel has been adapted into a minor subgenre of movies and sequels:

* ''Frankenstein'' (1910 film), a film written and directed by J. Searle Dawley, and the first film adaptation. Largely a showcase of special effects, and it was believed lost for decades. Luckily, a copy was eventually found.
* ''Life Without Soul'' (1915), the second film adaptation of Shelley's novel, remains a [[MissingEpisode lost film]].
* ''Film/{{Frankenstein|1931}}'' (1931 film), a film directed by James Whale and the first to star Creator/BorisKarloff as the title monster. Rather than the cynical, intelligent monster of the book, the Universal Studios version presents a childlike creature that DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength. This is the best-known adaptation, locked in the creature's physical appearance in pop-culture, and spawned its own series of sequels and parodies:
** ''Film/BrideOfFrankenstein'' (1935)
** ''Film/SonOfFrankenstein'' (1939)
** ''Film/TheGhostOfFrankenstein'' (1942)
** ''Film/FrankensteinMeetsTheWolfMan'' (1943)
** ''Film/HouseOfFrankenstein'' (1944)
** ''Film/HouseOfDracula'' (1945)
** ''Film/AbbottAndCostelloMeetFrankenstein'' (1948).
** ''TheMunsters'': The design of Herman Munster's makeup was heavily influenced by the Universal films.
** ''Film/YoungFrankenstein'' parodied elements of the first three Universal movies.
* ''Frankenstein 1970'', a 1958 film directed by Howard W. Koch.
* ''Film/FrankensteinConquersTheWorld'', a [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Toho]] film where the monster's immortal heart makes it's way to Japan and after exposure to the Hiroshima blast, leads to a new giant-sized Frankenstein, who fights a giant fire-breathing lizard named Baragon. Followed by ''Film/WarOfTheGargantuas'', where two creatures grow from scraps left behind in the previous movie.
* HammerHorror made a series of ''Frankenstein'' films during the 1960s and '70s, starring Creator/PeterCushing as the doctor. The first film, ''Film/TheCurseOfFrankenstein'', also had Creator/ChristopherLee as the monster.
* ''Frankenstein: The True Story'', a 1973 British MadeForTV film directed by Jack Smight and written by Christopher Isherwood.
* ''Frankenstein'' (1993 film), a 1993 made for television film directed by David Wickes
* ''Film/MaryShelleysFrankenstein'' (1994 film), directed by Kenneth Branagh and one of the more honest adaptations, although widely derided for its hammy acting and questionable casting.
* A remake of ''Film/HouseOfFrankenstein1997'' made in 1997 by NBC (can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JJjy9DTF-w here]]).
* ''Frankenstein'' (US TV miniseries), a 2004 adaptation shown on the Hallmark Channel.
* ''Frankenstein'' (2007 film), a 2007 adaption shown on ITV.
* ''Frankenstein: La Opera Rock''(2009 play) a Mexican RockOpera adaptation of the book, taking references from some of the movies. Written, directed, and composed by José Fores, who also plays the role of the creature.
* ''Frankenstein'' (Upcoming) GuillermoDelToro is planning his own adaptation, which will star Doug Jones as the monster.
* ''[[http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/pages/frankensteinswedding Frankenstein's Wedding]]'', a live musical filmed in Leeds, with the audience taking on the role of guests at Victor and Elizabeth's wedding.
* ''Theatre/{{Frankenstein|2011}}'', a 2011 play by Nick Dear and directed by Creator/DannyBoyle starring Creator/BenedictCumberbatch and Creator/JonnyLeeMiller alternating as Frankenstein and the Monster. Scored with dark electronic ambient by the band Music/{{Underworld}} too.

!! ''Frankenstein'' contains examples of:
!!! General
* ArtificialHuman
* AudioAdaptation
* BeamMeUpScotty: Victor Frankenstein never said "It's ALIVE!" in the original book.
* BlindAndTheBeast: The creature tries to befriend a blind man, and it works! Except the man's family returns and casts out the creature before he can explain himself.
** Sort of subverted in at least one version, where the blind man treats the creature politely... until his family tells him what the creature actually looks like, at which point he's horrified in spite of how nice the creature's been so far.
* CharacterTitle
* CommonKnowledge: Everyone "knows" that Frankenstein is the creature, or at least used to. Nowadays it's fairly common in fiction to hear one character snootily correct another about it being the name of the scientist and not the monster.
* CreatingLife: Easily the best example--perhaps not for Frankenstein, but certainly for Shelley
* CreepyLongFingers
* DarkIsNotEvil: A {{Deconstruction}}. The Monster was not inherently evil, but AllTheOtherReindeer made him so.
* FrankensteinsMonster: TropeNamer.
* GraveRobbing: In most adaptations, how the parts to create the monster are obtained.
* HerrDoctor: Possibly the TropeCodifier. More the films than the novel; both because the films' version of Frankenstein is more Germanic, and because in the original novel he never got his doctorate - after the shock of seeing his creation realised, he switched to studying literature, then dropped his studies entirely to deal with the creature's vendetta against him.
* {{Hubris}}: One of the themes of the plot.
* MadScientist
* MyNameIsNotDurwood: Many people call Frankenstein's Monster "Frankenstein", while he actually has no name. "Frankenstein" is the name of his maker, Victor Frankenstein. But I guess we can blame Mary Shelley for that; it would be a lot clearer to all if she'd called her novel "Doctor Frankenstein".
** Lampshaded in the third Universal film, when the train bearing Frankenstein's family arrives in their hometown.
*** Wolf Frankenstein: "Why, nine out of ten people call that misshapen creature of my father's experiments-"
*** Guard: "Frankenstein Village."
** This confusion dates back nearly as far as the novel itself, and became established during periods when the actual book was out of print, but its characters and plot were being emulated by stage plays, knockoffs and parodies throughout the pre-copyright 19th century.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Type C.
* ThenLetMeBeEvil
* UnbuiltTrope
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The Creature.

* LightningCanDoAnything:
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: The film is supposed to be set in some country where German is spoken, but most of the cast hardly make an effort.
* RetCon: Both Frankenstein and his creation are pretty clearly killed at the end of the 1931 film, but preview screenings proved so successful that they changed the ending to allow for Vic--er, Henry's survival, and then implying that the monster also survived the fire under the windmill. James Whale originally refused to direct the sequel, ''Bride of Frankenstein'', but eventually decided to [[MoneyDearBoy so he could make]] ''One More River.'' Knowing he could never top the original, he decided to make it [[{{Camp}} "a hoot."]]
* SillyWalk: A must for TheIgor.
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Many film adaptations.

* CompletelyMissingThePoint: In the 1931 movie the monster has a "criminal brain" and kills on instinct or by accident, which clashes with the original monster that was a BlankSlate that only turned criminal when he understood the hopelessness of his situation.



** Which makes no sense. Being a man of science who was working with biology, you would really expect Dr. Frankenstein to rely on chemistry, and a lot less electricity when he needs to jumpstart the brain/heart.
** Although electricity really does stop/start the heart from beating.
** And this was written shortly after Galvanism was discovered - the way you could get dissected muscles to twitch by running electricity through them. The term "animal electricity" was coined as a result, and people really did toy with the idea that electricity = life force.
* {{Mix-And-Match Man}}: While the novel's process never mentions the stitching together of body parts, nearly every movie version features this method.
