"Third in the Universal Frankenstein series, this one feels like a more solid, consistent film than the previous two, though not necessarily the best of the bunch (I would still lean towards Bride of Frankenstein for that honor). Still, this one should not be dismissed. Basil Rathbone gives a solid and often comedic performance as Wolf Frankenstein.
