Title

Saturday Night Live: The Curse of Frankenstein

Subject

A humorous take on Frankenstein's monster.

Description

This famous skit from “Saturday Night Live” is a short but effective take on Frankenstein’s encounters with people, but with humor mixed in. In this skit, Frankenstein (Bill Hader) attempts to misdirect the leader of a village mob (Hugh Laurie) into leaving him alone, either by sending him after Dracula (Jason Sudeikis) or by turning his own mob against him.

The skit maintains the themes of appearance, identity, and human perception from the book, while remaining a classic humor-filled SNL skit. You don't have to know much about Frankenstein to enjoy this video!
