Everybody loves Frankie!
Time to celebrate this often misunderstood monster who just wants a friend.
The last Friday in October is reserved for adoration of one of the first science fiction novels and the creature we’ve come to know and love.
Here are a few ideas how to celebrate Dr. Frankenstein’s Monster today.
Celebration 1: Read the Book!
In fact, in a day when technology is growing faster than ever it is a reminder that its growth must not outpace our conscience.
You can read it on Kindle for FREE, but my favorite volume is Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein – with a preface by Stephen King and Wrightson’s masterful illustrations it is more than just a book, it is a treasure.
Don’t have time to read the book today?
Okay, I’ll let you cheat a little. Here’s Sparks Notes quickie video version.

Read the fascinating history behind Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
It is interesting to see how personal regrets, a competition between authors and a vivid dream created a monster.
Celebration 2: Watch the Movie
What better way to celebrate Frankenstein Friday than to watch the classic movie?
It is available on Amazon Instant Video, and is probably available at your local library for rental.
My motherly advice: if you’re planning on purchasing the DVD, go for the Classic Monsters Spotlight Collection from Universal Studio’s 100th Anniversary with Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, and the Creature from Black Lagoon. You get more for your money!
Not into the black & white classics?
See The Best Frankenstein Movies of All Time for a list of all the weird and wonderful Frankenstein movies ever made.
Celebration 3: Have a Frankenbath
A Frankenbath is like the haunted house touch-and-feel slimy guts game, only in the bathtub.
Decorate your bathroom like Frankenstein’s laboratory, prepare your bowls of brains, vomit, eyes and ears, and create memories that last a lifetime. We show you how to do it here.
