Strong sequel!

"To a new world of gods and monsters!"

Successful sequel to the classic 1931 film Frankenstein is just as good as the original, if not even better.

Taking place just after the events of Frankenstein, this film again follows The Monster (Karloff) who survived the blaze in a burning windmill that supposedly killed him. He rises from the rubble to run rampage once more.... read more

Fully representative of the uncommon idea that a sequel can surpass its predecessor on every level, "The Bride of Frankenstein" is a groundbreaking feature, casting an inexplicable spell over audiences that remains entirely undiminished by the passage of time, cinematic technologies and styles.

"Re-watch - Oct. 18th My daughter enjoyed this one too, but like the rest of the Universal films we've watched it didn't fully hold her attention. She did, however, turn to me and ask if Una O'Connor is in any other films I have. Which is how we wound up watching The Invisible Man next. Just a thought: And now she should be well-prepared to watch Young Frankenstein."

“Fully representative of the uncommon idea that a sequel can surpass its predecessor on every level, "The Bride of Frankenstein" is a groundbreaking feature, casting an inexplicable spell over audiences that remains entirely undiminished by the passage of time, cinematic technologies and styles. Despite the genre transforming beyond recognition in terms of the Universal era's creaky Gothic sets and content restrictions, James Whale's subtext-laden films have preserved his legacy for further generations, securing his continued relevance as a figurehead of the first wave of classic horror cinema almost a century on.

Inexorably more refined and adventurous, Whale's innovative overhaul of the first film's drawbacks, such as the underdevelopment of the main characters, their motivation” read more

Horror Films Of The 1930's (15 movies items)

"Often considered even better than it's predessecor, this is a true horror classic. It's a piece of film history for many reasons. The first appearence of Frankenstein's monster speaking, the birth of the "bride of the monster" concept, and so much more. It's a landmark, no doubt, but it does have it's share of problems. Foremost being it's almost constant usage of comedy relief. After every "frightening" moment, some slapstick character will shriek and fall down, or run about, bumping into thing"

“Reactions to this, James Whale's ageless masterpiece, are varied; some say it just could be the Greatest Horror Film Ever Made, some think it's just an overblown tongue-in-cheek comedy sham. Probably Whale himself would have been the first to label his picture a "farce", but count me among those who think it's a brilliant piece of work, well in consideration as one of the undisputed top-tier horror classics of any decade. It qualifies as horror, but mostly plays along more like a child's twisted storybook fantasy. It's renowned as one of the few movie sequels which may be considered even better than its original (in this case, that would be James Whale's 1931 FRANKENSTEIN). While I think both films are excellent, with the first being more serious in tone than its follow-up, I'd give the ha” read more
