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

My Top 15 Halloween Favorites: Frankenstein (15 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 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. Camera work and set design are also stand outs. A definite must see for any fan of Horror films. 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."

"5.4. 2011 The third film in the series recycles old ideas and it's not a horror classic like the previous ones, but it doesn't bother that much. Especially the sets are gorgeous in their gothic beauty. The monster is once again the most sympathetic character of the story."

"Released on: 13 January 1939 The third in the series, and last one of the Universal series to feature Boris Karloff as the Creature; which also has Bela Lugosi as Ygor. It has a few continuity errors with the first two films, and the Creature here is not the main focus of the plot, Ygor and Baron Wolf von Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone) are. Not as good as the previous films, but still great fun with a solid and original story arch."
