1931 Frankenstein trailer set to "Show Me How to Live" by Audioslave . The creature looks nothing like the one ine the book, but this song fits with the creature . (The creature's look apparently came from a Goya picture.) The song is perfect with the trailer. (For lyrics and more information click on band link above.)

"The Scream" by Edvard Munch (1863-1944)
'The image was chosen becasue of becasue of the following quote as it reminded me of the landscape descriptions in both Frankenstein and Mary Shelley's Journals. Additionally, it is my assertion that the creature experienced an existential crisis. The image is often associated with exestentialism.
"I was walking along a path with two friends—the sun was setting—suddenly the sky turned blood red—I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence—there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city—my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety—and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.' A sunset stroll along a road above an Oslo fjord, a blood-red sky, a sensation of nameless dread: This is how the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch (1863-1944) described the visionary experience that inspired him to create The Scream—his most famous work and one of the most recognizable images in modern art" (Fineman).
