Frankenstein (フランケンシュタイン ,   Furankenshutain ? ) is a kaiju used by Toho in the 1965 Toho film , Frankenstein vs. Baragon . He is based on Frankenstein's monster from Mary Shelley's classic horror novel, Frankenstein .

Frankenstein's Japanese name is a rōmaji of his name in English, which was the surname of the monster's creator, Doctor Victor Frankenstein, in Mary Shelley's original novel. Frankenstein's name follows a trope which has existed since versions of the character first appeared in film.

Frankenstein's appearance is primarily derived from actor Boris Karloff's iconic portrayal of the creature in the 1931 film adaptation of the novel. Toho's Frankenstein features the tall lanky physique of Karloff's version, along with the trademark tall forehead and flat-topped angular head. Unlike most other interpretations, Toho's Frankenstein seems to have normal human-looking skin and no signs of physical decay on his body. Due to his size, Toho's Frankenstein also wears a large makeshift cloak presumably made of fur rather than normal clothing.

“There’s an H.P. Lovecraft sort of approach,” Matt Duffer put it —“this inter-dimensional being that is sort of beyond human comprehension.”

Monsters, in many ways, are mirrors: They tend to reflect the deepest anxieties of a place and a time and reflect them back to the people who live them . Frankenstein’s creation gave grotesque form to Victorian fears about technology’s effect on the human soul. Godzilla, in the next century, did the same, interpreting the looming threat of nuclear annihilation as a hulking lizard with atomic breath . Environmental catastrophe; economic collapse; epidemics; aliens; serial killers; kidnappers; weaponized ennui; apocalypse of varying stripes—each fear has found a form, on a screen, as a monster.

There will very likely be more allegations in the months to come, more open secrets stripped of their secrecy. And each one, as before, will likely serve to ratify a sense that the world is not quite what it had claimed to be. Shortly after the Weinstein news broke, in a piece headlined “The Harvey Weinstein Scandal Is Changing How I Look at the Movies,” S late ’s movie critic, Dana Stevens, likened the revelations to “the discovery that your kitchen floor doesn’t just need refinishing but has been eaten from within by a seething mass of termites.”
