Bride Of Frankenstein Review
By Christopher Null
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.
