Arnolfini - est 1961

Friday 15 December 8.00pm
Frankenstein (18)
Film with live sound by Stoloff and Hopkinson
Bristol’s infamous sound experimenters, Stoloff and Hopkinson improvise live to James Whale’s seminal 1931 version of the Mary Shelley story, in which Boris Karloff gives one of the all-time great performances as the monster. The film’s great imaginative coup is to show the monster ‘growing up’ in all too human terms, only to find himself misjudged by the society that created him. An impressively stylish film with a weird fairytale beauty which has had a huge influence on the horror genre ever since. ‘A monster science created but could not destroy!’ Preceded by a short film by Stoloff and Hopkinson.
