Rocco's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

This is the the quintessential classic Universal horror film. It also happens to be (along with The Invisible Man, also by James Whale) the most entertaining of the bunch. The effete Dr. Pretorious playing nagging wife to the impotent Henry Frankenstein and the general campiness of the goings on gives the film a culty, gay edge. This is the film that inspired Rocky Horror and led to the creation of comedic horror.
