31 Days of Halloween – 001: Edison’s Frankenstein (1910)

Yep, it’s October which means it’s time for the usual countdown to All Hallows Eve. This year, rather than trying to do a full 31 film reviews or something truly time-consuming like that, most of what I’m going to be posting are favorite trailers, short films, some full-length movies, and other items just to kind of help get everyone in the spirit of what really is one of my favorite holidays.

So what say we begin the celebration by reaching way back in time to the earliest days of film and checking out what is purported to be the first adaptation of Mary Shelly’s novel Frankenstein, created by the Edison Studios, and restored in 2010 for its 100th anniversary?

Okay, we’re on our way. if you’ve got any comments on this, or any ideas for other scary bits an bobs that you’d like to see featured in the countdown, let me know either in the comments below, or over on the Durnmoose Movies Facebook page which can be found here.
