Finish Line Readings



All these obvious endings don't vary
There's the mob that's dependably scary
And their torchlight illumines
Some unfortunate humans
And the cobbled parts-blend they'd re-bury.

The Monster (Glenn Strange) carries Dr. Niemann (Boris Karloff) away in the conclusion to House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944).

Did any of the villagers ever just try to rebury Franky, ala putting Jason "back in the lake" in Friday the 13th Part VI? Or am I reading too much into things? :)

I don't think they ever did. But I recall in at least one film Frankenstein himself said that for the Monster to be destroyed it would have to be disassembled.
