Bride of Frankenstein

Bride of Frankenstein


More fearful than the monster himself!

The sequel to Frankenstein (1931), with director James Whale and star Boris Karloff returning. Following immediately from the events of the original, the story expands a subplot from Mary Shelley's novel in which Frankenstein creates a mate for his monster. A rare sequel with a reputation greater than its predecessor, this is considered Whale's masterpiece and contains (according to some) homosexual and Christian subtexts.

Wanted to like it, but as soon as I saw, or should I say heard that old woman from the Invisible Man, I think my brain imploded.

  • Whale's erudite genius brings it all together. He sculpts every nuance of self-parody, social satire, horror, humour, wit and whimsy into a dazzling whole. Full Review

  • Whale's most perfectly realised movie, a delight from start to finish. Full Review

  • Seen today, Whale's masterpiece is more surprising than when it was made because today's audiences are more alert to its buried hints of homosexuality, necrophilia and sacrilege. But you don't have to deconstruct it to enjoy it. Full Review
