Universal Studios’ 1931 Frankenstein is famous not only for the groundbreaking and enduring look of the Frankenstein Monster, but for the production design of the Academy Award nominated Charles D. Hall.
Frankenstein created the look that “mad scientist” films follow to this day as well as defined the castle laboratory aesthetic. One of the most iconic images from the film is the Monster standing in the open doorway of the lab. A wall of rough-hewn stones and a studded wooden door in the background ominously frames the Monster.
This One:12 Collective environment perfectly recreates the look and feel of the scene as though it were a movie set. Created of polystone, the environment features a functional door, floor, and stone wall. Behind the door, a cardstock backdrop creates the illusion of depth. The set includes a period-accurate trunk which matches the same one seen in still 310-1-90 from the Universal archives. The environment assembles easily using embedded magnets to ensure a secure fit.
