Wights are an unusual species of undead used occasionally by the Scourge. They most closely resemble a zombie, but their bodies have grown to monstrous sizes and are horridly deformed. It is unknown how this transformation occurred.
With their flat heads, and bolts implanted in their neck, wights have a very similar design to film depictions of Frankenstein's monster. They are frequently quite intelligent, and seem to retain the mind that they had in life. This cumbersome and beast-like movement combined with human wit furthers the parallel with the monster portrayed in the Frankenstein novel, however it distances the similarity to the popular conception of Frankenstein.
