Frankenstein is a 1931 science fiction film from Universal Pictures directed by James Whale and very loosely based on the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. The film stars Colin Clive, Dwight Frye, Edward van Sloan, and Boris Karloff. The film also features Mae Clarke and John Boles.

The film was adapted by John L. Balderston, Francis Edward Faragoh, Garrett Fort, Robert Florey (uncredited) and John Russell (uncredited) from the Shelley novel and the play by Peggy Webling. The make-up artist was Jack Pierce.

Visually, the film was heavily influenced by the German expressionist films of the 1920s.
