PCHgames Today: “It’s Alive” With A Monstrous 1,818 Tokens!
“It’s alive, it’s alive, IT’S ALIVE!”
Okay, you got me: that line doesn’t appear in Mary Shelley’s iconic 19th-century novel, Frankenstein. But it does come from the classic 1931 horror film inspired by Shelley’s book. And that’s the version that lives on in the popular imagination.
When you think of Frankenstein, do you see stormy nights, creepy laboratories, and mad scientists? Do you see a shambling, stitched together monster with bolts in his neck? If you do, thank that movie (and Boris Karloff!), because barely any of that can be found in the book!
A true tale of Gothic horror, Shelley’s Frankenstein (which by the way, has a subtitle…do you know what it is?) was based on a dream the author had when she was 18. Three years later, the story based on that dream was published…to not-so-rave reviews. Little did Shelley know she’d created a monster…literally. Because centuries later, her tale would take on a life of its own.
Now, I’ve read the book and I’ve watched the movie, and I have to admit, I like the movie better! But whichever you favor, the story’s themes of science gone wrong, “Man plays God,” and madness and mayhem are as timely as today’s headlines.
And today, if you didn’t already know, is National Frankenstein Day, which purportedly celebrates the birth of the Frankenstein monster. A Scorpio (like me!) born just before Halloween — how convenient! If you’ve got a Frankenstein costume, you get to wear it twice!
What can you do to celebrate? Why not read the book or graphic novel, watch one of the many Frankenstein movies, or learn to make a “mad science” experiment of your own!
