This is the last great film in the Universal Frankenstein series. Bela Lugosi steals the film giving one of his best performances as Ygor.
This movie has what could be the best cast of any Horror movie. Basil Rathbone and Lionel Atwill are solid in their roles. Karloff makes the most of his limited part. The musical score is excellent and recycled endlessly through the '40s by Universal. C... read more

""If the house is filled with dread, place the beds at head to head." I LOVE Son of Frankenstein. This would be Karloff's third and final outing as the Frankenstein monster, but he manages to go out on a high note, in one of the most fun and spellbinding entries in the entire Universal monster library. Visually, I dare to say that the sets may even be more ambitious and awesome than the ones that James Whale filmed in the previous two films. With the giant shadows and impossibly large arches in"

"The third Frankenstein movie and the last one to take the subject seriously. The rest that followed were campy and fun but the first three were eerie as hell. Eeriest scene is the one where the monster is spying on the child in his bedroom. Neat gothic post modern architecture and a lava pit scene at the end that was pretty well copied in Alien III and in countless other films."

" Basil Rathbone, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi together in one film! Yay! Well, not so much. I have watched "Young Frankenstein" so many times that it really doesn't inspire many laughs. So, to watch the film that the spoof was based off of... well wasn't very thrilling. I'm glad I took the time to watch the film even if it didn't spark much interest."

My Top 99 Favorite Horror Movies (99 movies items)

"The original Dr. Frankenstein may be dead, but his son, aptly named "Wolf", lives on. To continue the family tradition monster mayem madness. Featuring not only the first appearance of the iconic hunchbacked sidekick named Ygor (notice that's the correct spelling is a "Y", not an "I"), but also some really cool angular backdrops, a one-armed inspector, and a laboratory containing a big pit of sulfur. And lemme tell you something, when it comes to literal foreshadowing, they don't get any dee"

"Watched on: 10/15 This movie has a lot of weird continuity errors. Some of them are reasonable, but some of them, like the town being called Frankenstein, were just so strange. But, if you look past the continuity errors, it's a great movie. "

This is one of my all time favorite films and stands up very well to repeated viewings.” read more

"The Creature here is a supporting character. The main focus is Dr. Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone) and Ygor (Bela Lugosi) both nailed their characters very well. Not as good as the first two, but still worthy of a look for fans of the genre."
