Frankenstein 1931 and Dracula 1931 are excellent resources on the plots, casts and the making of these two iconic film classics.

This book is simply spectacular. It would be impossible for a "Frankenstein" fan to not be blown away by it.

The Universal Frankenstein Movies 1931-1948 is the ultimate guide to this classic movie franchise!

LOW SHIPPING RATES FOR ORDERS OF THE UNIVERSAL FRANKENSTEIN MOVIES 1931-1948 TO THE UNITED STATES, UK, CANADA AND EUROPE!

Never was there such an iconic movie monster as Universal’s Frankenstein Monster. Brought spectacularly to life by the combined visionary talents of director James Whale and make-up supremo Jack P Pierce, this shambling, sympathetic brute, played to perfection by Boris Karloff, was destined to become the stuff of cinematic legend.

From the groundbreaking first film, 1931’s Frankenstein, The Universal Frankenstein Movies 1931-1948 celebrates this tour de force of monster movie franchises. We look in detail at each film in turn, chronicling the significance of each entry: Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Son of Frankenstein (1939), The Ghost of Frankenstein (1942), Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), House of Frankenstein (1944), House of Dracula (1945) and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948).

Through the vagaries of studio politics, decreasing budgets and some of the most incredible monster rallies ever committed to celluloid, this is a most remarkable story of the highs and lows of everyone’s favourite monster.

Painstakingly researched, and lovingly written by authors Nige Burton and Jamie Jones, The Universal Frankenstein Movies 1931-1948 also looks in depth at the many people behind the series, from cast and crew to studio executives and the creative brains at the beating heart of the Frankenstein story.

This luxurious 68-page special collector’s edition magazine is perfect bound in the style of Classic Monsters of the Movies magazine, and is packed with articles, stills and posters, all printed in a beautiful full colour publication which any classic monster lover will cherish.

  • 68 pages
  • Perfect bound (square spine)

  1. 5 out of 5

    This is a wonderful tribute to the Frankenstein films released by Universal. The writing is entertaining, informative and respectful, and the layout and photographs are phenomenal. I consider myself a collector of many things horror, and I have never seen such crisp and clear – and sometimes very rare – pictures from these films. Beautiful!

  3. 5 out of 5

    What a wonderful read this magazine was. It’s layout is straight forward, easy to follow and, above all, easy on the eyes. It contains the right amounts of biographical, historical and cinematic related information too keep the reader interested and doesn’t bore them with endless dribble!!! The source materials, and pictures, are of excellent quality and print paper is second to none. I really hope that they continue to utilise this comprehensive format with regards to Universal’s other monster series (Mummy/Creature/Invisible Man etc.. ). Great job!!!
