A little error people make (even the movie makers) is that Frankenstien is the Dr/bloke that made the monster.Frankenstein Friday celebrates the creator of Frankenstein and the first actor to play Frankenstein. Frankenstein obviously holds no terror nor scare factor nowadays, but that's only because the legendary monster was overplayed and parodied far too often; sort of like every ****ing meme on the internets. So yeah, today's a cool holiday for all you horror fans out there. Oh, and here's a fun fact for ya; did you know Shelley didn't create Frankenstein on imagination alone? At least some of her inspiration comes from the true story of a scientist who was a pioneer of electricity. He would shock corpses of animals, limbs, and eventually whole cadavers and cause their nervous systems to react and thus, "reanimate" the dead, stunning on-looking crowds. Alessandro Volta believed he'd one day be able to permanently bring someone back to life with electricity, but as you know, this never happened; or at least, it happened only in a book.
