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

October 2015 Horrorfest (43 movies items)

"Re-watch - Oct. 6th The moment I saw Drafthouse was screening this, I bought my ticket. And how cool is it that at 10pm on a Tuesday night in 2015 I watched this in a crowd of 170 people? And in 35mm? If you said super cool (or something similar), you got it. It hasn't been too long since I last watched this, but seeing it on the big screen gave me a far better appreciation of the set design all around. There are echoes of Fritz Lang and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari on display, which really tra"

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. "
