Mordaunt Hall gave Frankenstein a very positive review and said that the film "aroused so much excitement at the Mayfair yesterday that many in the audience laughed to cover their true feelings." "[T]here is no denying that it is far and away the most effective thing of its kind. Beside it Dracula is tame and, incidentally, Dracula was produced by the same firm". 
In September 2011, astronomer Donald Olson, after a visit to the Lake Geneva villa the previous year, and inspecting data about the motion of the moon and stars, concluded that her "waking dream" took place "between 2 . and 3 ." on 16 June 1816, several days after the initial idea by Lord Byron that they each write a ghost story. 
While Victor was at first mesmerized by his accomplishment, he soon rejects it after reasoning returns to him. Victor’s most selfish act stems from the murder of his brother William. William is used as a foil to show that Victor is a selfish beast. Victor knows that his creation has murdered William, yet he does not confess to his knowledge. Victor withheld the knowledge that would have spared Justine’s life. “Justine also was a girl of merit and possessed qualities which promised to render her life happy; now all was to be obliterated in an ignominious grave, and I was the cause!”(Shelley 66). While Victor admits to himself that he is responsible for Justine’s death, he thinks he is at fault because he created the Creature, not that he withheld vital information.
