The Bride of Frankenstein


Dir. James Whale. 1935, 75 mins. 35mm. With Boris Karloff, Elsa Lanchester. Karloff reprises his role as the murderous yet melancholy patchwork monster and Elsa Lanchester strikes a legendary pose as his newly minted mate. Director Whale ups the ante on terror, pathos, and even comedy in the beloved, occasionally outrageous sequel to the 1931 Frankenstein, an endlessly entertaining cornerstone of Universal’s hallowed 1930s creature-feature cycle.
