William's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

3.5 It's jarring to see this directly after the original film, as the broadly comic tone (especially Una O'Connor) contrasts so greatly with the tragedy of the 1931 masterpiece. In set design, the house of Frankenstein seems oddly diminished too, as does the complexity of Colin Clive's Henry. Still, Dr. Pretorious is perverse and creepy, the blind hermit is great & you've got to love that underground crypt set.
