This special edition of "Mike at the Movies" will spotlight some of the most popular and enduring cinematic interpretations of Mary Shelley's masterpiece!

In all of literature Frankenstein is one of the novels most frequently adapted into other mediums. This special Halloween edition of "Mike at the Movies" will spotlight some of the most popular and enduring cinematic interpretations of Mary Shelley's masterpiece - from James Whale's iconic Boris Karloff vehicle from 1931 and Hammer's lurid color version in 1958 to classic parodies such as Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein and Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. The presentation will focus on how different filmmakers have managed to explore different aspects of the same well-known formula and, in the process, continually revive a story that refuses to die.

Michael Glover Smith is the director of the feature films Rendezvous in Chicago (2018), Mercury in Retrograde (2017) and Cool Apocalypse (2015), and the author of the book Flickering Empire (Columbia University Press, 2015). He teaches at several Chicago-area colleges and blogs at Whitecitycinema.com.
