Actor Boris Karloff brought to life some of Universal's most classic movie monsters in "Frankenstein" (1931) and "The Mummy" (1932). "Frankenstein" tells the story of a monster created by a mad scientist with body parts from corpses. "The Mummy" is an undead ancient Egyptian priest who stalks a young woman that resembles his former love. Both characters are classics of horror, but which of Karloff's roles is the scariest? 😱

Was Frankenstein's monster really a terrifying villain or just a misunderstood creation? The Mummy (a.k.a ancient Egyptian priest Imhotep) is pretty darn creepy. He was brought back to life by a spell, and then stalks a young woman who might be the reincarnation of his ancient lover. Imhotep plans to kill her, mummify her, resurrect her and make her his lover.

Imagine an ancient person coming back to life and being this villainous. The Mummy makes Frankenstein's monster look like a gentle giant—or does he?

Frankenstein's monster might be Karloff's most famous role, and the lumbering green giant is definitely one of the most popular horror icons ever. He's so scary that in the original film Frankenstein's monster plays with a little girl before drowning her.

In 1931, moviegoers were pretty freaked out and outraged over the death of a child in a film. The studio swiftly responded by removing the scene for decades. Talk about an iconic moment in cinema. The monster might have been controversial in 1931, but that's what makes him scary today.
