Frankenstein at the movies - The first from 100 years ago...

Another creepy milestone passed this year: The first Silver Screen Frankenstein Monster turned 100. Charles Ogle created his outrageous makeup and costume himself for the Edison Company first adaption of Mary Shelly's classic tale. A long lost film was rediscovered in the late 70ties and is now available at Youtube.

This is William Paquet's 3-D rendering of the Ogle creature, rereleased from Monstrology Models and now available through the Headless Hearseman. Painted by me with acrylics, pastels and airbrush.

Here is the full movie (only 12 minutes long):
