Frankenstein’s Movie Adaptations

In this post, there is a list of all the television adaptations I could find of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. There might have been more movies or television shows that included some of Frankenstein’s characters, but as far as my research went, this is what I could find. If you see something missing from the list, comment and I will add it to the list.
