Frankenstein's Monster

Frankenstein's Monster is a monster created by Dr. Frankenstein and used by Dracula as a source of power to bring his children to life.


While he looks like his Boris Karloff counterpart, he behaved much more like the version from the novel, being perfectly coherent. As in the novel, the monster was initially quite grumpy, but helpful. Leading a difficult life, his own 'father' or god was murdered and hiding from Dracula, as well as being ostracized by most humans as they assumed he was a dumb, evil demon, the monster was paranoid, jittery, and prone to defensive bursts of anger. However, seeing Anna and van, and being accepted by them, he appeared very loyal and friendly, putting himself through pain to help them. In most incarnations(excluding young frankenstein) the monster would commit suicide And destroy himself via fire or an explosion, this monster actually treasured and clung onto his life, even if he admitted he spent a lot of it being in pain. This might be because he wanted to kill Dracula, and seeing Anna and van accept him as a friend raised his hopes of being accepted by society, as he in the end of the movie, he sailed off out to sea, in hopes of finding a loving place to call home.

Physical Appearance Edit

In the 2004 film Van Helsing, the monster is shown in a somewhat modernized version of the Karloff design. He is 8 to 9 feet (240–270 cm) tall, has square bald head, gruesome scars, and pale green skin. The electricity is emphasized with one electrified dome in the back of his head and another over his heart. It also has hydraulic pistons in its legs, essentially rendering the design as a steam-punk cyborg. Although not as eloquent as in the novel, this version of the creature is intelligent and relatively nonviolent
