No mention yet of Dracula vs. Frankenstein (1971)? Al Adamson's version might not be particularly good but it is surprisingly goofy fun especially when the monsters finally tangle...

Truly unmentioned: FRANKENSTEIN UNBOUND a cool movie made from a great book.

Speaking mainly of films based on the book, I was actually OK with the Robert Dinero Frankenstein.  I felt it really captured the book more than it's predecessors.

Sorry to be anal retentive-the first FRANKENSTIEN was 1910-not 1915.
My anal passage flows fine-except when it comes to movie facts. Otherwise I cant recall my own sons birthday,daylight savings time,or where I left my hat the day before. But I know what year the first Frankenstein was made.  Bluesad I dont have a girlfreind either.  Bluesad

I may be...um, "AGAINST THE GRAIN" here, but I really dug the 90s one with DeNiro. Not EMACULATE by any means, but i liked it.

I consider Bride of Frankenstein to be the best one.

House of Dracula is my second favorite because the over-the-top craziness of having the Jekyll/Hyde mad scientist, hunchback nurse, wolf man, Frankenstein's monster, and Dracula all in one film.

After that it becomes very hard to decide.  I love so many of them.  The Hammer Frankensteins are some of my favorites.  I also like Assignment Terror (with Michael Rennie and Paul Naschy), Lady Frankenstein, Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter, Young Frankenstein, Frankenstein Conquers the World, and too many others to list.

And here is the WORST (by far) Frankenstein movie ever.  It is an incomprehensible, pseudo-artsy, ego-trip movie made by a very young director.  Awful, awful, awful . . . and I bought the damned DVD.

Honestly, Burgo, it was better than BLACKENSTEIN.   BounceGiggle

At least BLACKENSTEIN is good for laughs.  This turkey is completely incomprehensible and BORING.

But the director of BLACKENSTEIN didn't send me a free DVD! 

Honestly, I didn't think it was THAT bad, because of the massive inventiveness of the cinematography.  And, it's a tribute to Andy Milligan and drive-in cinema.  That melting effect when the doctor dies is absolutely beautiful and ingenious, and something I'd never seen before.  But in the narrative sense it was pretty terrible---Hand is a great technician but I fear he does not know how to tell a story.  His followup film was beautifully shot but once again, dull and confusing.  Anyway, I'm just happy that I'm not the only person on this board who's seen the movie.

Frankenstein: The True Story, a TV mini-series starring James Mason, actually has the Monster at first created as a seemingly perfect man. Of course, things later take a turn for the worse...much worse. And look out for Jane Seymour in this one as a potential Bride. Also stars David McCallum, Leonard Whiting Agnes Moorehead and Tom Baker.

Oh wow. I remember seeing that one and liking it, but I couldn't remember what it was. Might have to look for it on video.

I didn't mind The Bride. I thought Clancy Brown was a pretty good monster. I don't suppose we can include Munster Go Home in this category.
