  1. smndvdcl's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Superior to the 1931 film, however much of a detour it is from Shelley's classic novel. It perfectly plays up the 'What If?' Card regarding the Monster having a companion. This film is a profound exploration of gender politics. No adaptation of the novel has yet surpassed this. PS. Karloff is still the quintessential Monster.

  2. Mic in Port's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    From the opening with Percy Shelley, Byron, and Mary Shelley, to the near-existential ending, this is a sequel every bit better than its predecessor, and the climax of James Whale's horror films. Picks up right where the last one left off, but has such a drastically different tone and feel to it; a delightfully earnest film that may surprise you with its accessibility and low-key beauty.

  3. yeraline's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

  4. Ian Vorley's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    What was with those tiny, freaky people in the bell jars?! Did I miss something or did that have nothing to do with anything? Unbelievable SFX though. And by unbelievable I mean unbelievably believable!

  5. Trevor's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Gleefully bizzare and stunningly modern, this is the benchmark of Universal's horror cycle of the 1930s, with kink and humor to spare.

  6. Daniel Kasman's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Finally saw this! Wonderfully sentimental and sweet, and with a weird self-aware humor I'm seeing in Whale (the only other film of his I've seen is THE OLD DARK HOUSE). Wish the ending could have been as expressive dramatically as it was cinematically. (This movie has the best sets I have ever seen.)

  8. Michael Harbour's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Great character actors, gorgeous lighting, classic sets. The ending is rather abrupt to modern storytelling sensibilities but perfectly appropriate to the story. Just immerse yourself and enjoy the pinnacle of Universal Horror.

  9. saiths's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    possibly one of my favorite and best sequels. it's just so damn good also it includes a lot of elements that horror films seem to lack. the general hilarity, the feelings of the monster and just an all around great film.

  10. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    One of the earliest examples of a sequel exceeding the original, this horror masterpiece is funny, touching, and wonderfully directed by Whale.

  11. Charles Coleman's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Great film, one of those films you can see every two or three years and learn something new every time. A hauntingly beautiful film that must be seen by all (after you see the first one first, of course).

  12. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Bizarre and Horror. Romanticism at its best! Masterpiece.

  13. Tigrão's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    "She's alllllliiiiiiiivvvvvvveeeeeee!"

  14. MarcH's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    The great iconic comic-horror masterpiece of the the 20th century. If I'm only allowed one DVD, I choose this.

  15. Seth Farmer's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

  16. Dave's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    James Whale improves upon the original and is one of the finest horror/science fiction movies of the 1930s. All of the sentiments below are correct - a justified classic.

  17. Gonzalo Caride's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Fantastic movie!!! A classic that should stand forever as one of the best movies in its genre. The dialogues, art, development of the story, camera movements and angle, light work, the use of iconic imaginary and locations in horror movies, and also those glimpses of comedy... Wonderful! And hail to Ernest Thesiger as "Dr Pretorious", simply priceless. James Whale delivers an incredible master piece.

  18. Edward Copeland's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    The rare case of a sequel that bests the original. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2009/04/after-75-years-shes-still-alive.html

  19. KalebEdwardWilliams's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    This film is the oldest film that I love the most. The plot crackles along, the performances shine in a tenuous consistency that do the tonal shifts service. Beautiful design and a beautiful woman don't hurt either.

  20. Antoine Tremblay's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Absolute perfection, everthing in this film is at the right place at the right time. Whale created, with the help of a miraculous cast; the epitome of the golden age of classic Horror cinema. I could watch this one a thousand times. 5 stars, of course.

  21. PolarisDiB's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Everything expands, including production value, body count, world and character building, and amount of people involved. Dr. Pretorius is the pure evil to counterpoint Dr. Frankenstein's previous redemption, the bride shines during her two minutes of screen time, and the macabre humor hits its high notes.

  22. Brendan's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    I absolutely love this movie. James Whale does incredible things with great makeup design, entrancing camera movements, a memorable score and (of course) marvelous performances all around. A perfect movie for me.

  23. Andrzej's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    An amazing film. James Whale deserves his own little Auteur section.

  24. Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film Bride of Frankenstein

    Although more funny than scary, this has to be one of the best sequels ever done. James Whale's narration is lyrical and stylish, the settings evoke gothic mystique and Boris Karloff perfectly embodies the tall walking corpse, who embarks on a murderous rampage after the events of the first film, only to find at the end that even he has a heart. excellent horror/black comedy universal classic.
