Frankenstein Poster Expected To Sell For $225,000

A rare poster from the 1931 classic horror film "Frankenstein" is going up for auction and it's expected to fetch more than $200,000.

The 84-year-old poster, known as "three sheet" because it's made up of three panels, is one of only a handful of originals around today.

It was discovered in the 1970s at an abandoned Long Island theater.

It's going on the auction block at Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas at the end of the month, and officials told the Daily Mail they expect collectors will pay as much as $225,000 for it.

According to IMDB, the film itself cost an estimated $291,000 to make.

If you ever stumble across a Frankenstein poster, hold onto it. A one-sheet poster sold for a then-record of $198,000 in 1993 -- and one from the 1935 film "The Bride of Frankenstein" went for more than $330,000 in 2007.
