Day 11 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – Mary Shelley

Who does not love a good classic horror story? Especially when it was written? To me, this is truly the best horror classic . . . Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. My favorite movie rendition of the movie? The 1994 version. You know, the one with Robert DeNiro.

I admit, I cried at the end. Both the movie and the book itself. Why wouldn’t you cry? A monster that was created from an evil man’s idea, who literally had no choice. Wanted to have a companion, and friends, and everyone considered him a monster and did not want to be around him. I would cry too if no one wanted to be my friend, and thought of me as a monster.

I believe Mary Shelley was ahead of her time, and I cannot imagine what she may have gone through after the story was published. She probably never event thought that it would become a classic, and it would be forgotten. Not me. Loved the story, loved the way it was written, and fell in love with the monster.

What is your favorite movie rendition?
