The Best and Worst Movie Taglines of All Time, #92

It's the list of the Best and Worst Movie Taglines of All Time and here's how it all goes down: http://www.mistercinecal.com/2015/06/the-best-and-worst-movie-taglines-of.html

Best #92
Which: "A monster science created but could not destroy!"
Where: Frankenstein
What: Extraordinary Hyperbole, Succinct Summary
When: 1931
Why: We all know the basic story of Frankenstein, but there's no better way to have it described than through the bombastic declarations of 1930s Hollywood marketing. Even if you've been living under a rock your entire life, this tagline gives you everything; mad science gone wrong, horror ensues. It's the tagline Universal created-that Mister Cinecal enjoyed!

Worst #92
Which: "Why are they putting seatbelts in theatres this summer?"
Where: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
What: The 'Our Audience Are Idiots' Principle
When: 1989
Why: So that audiences don't try to escape?
