Bride Of Frankenstein Review


Extraordinary
A horror mega-classic. The sequel to the original Frankenstein is both the basis for Young Frankenstein and the film around which Gods and Monsters revolves. James Whale's film comes off as original and fresh -- and despite a few draggy scenes it's genuinely thrilling and often scary, 70 years after it was made. Filled with classic moments ("She's alive! Alive!", the hair streaks in the Bride (an uncredited Elsa Lanchester), the famous meeting between the haggard monster and the blind man, and the "gods and monsters" speech), this film is fresh and still looks great, thanks to some fabulous technical work behind the scenes. Altogether it's a true achievement. Highly recommended.

Frankenstein (1931) Review


Very Good
A little talky and with limited action, James Whale would outdo himself with Bride of Frankenstein, four years later. But from 1931 to 1935 we can assume that audiences cowered in fear before the best and most terrifying horror films ever made, this and Dracula, which arrived the same year. Now a classic part of scream culture, Boris Karloff (credited here as "?") literally stumbles his way through a role that would define his career, a perfect portrayal of literature and cinema's most misunderstood monster. (Hey, if you were made out of corpse parts, you'd be mad, too!)
