  • Bob's rating of the film Monster of Frankenstein

    An anime take on classic tale is surprisingly gorey and violent, but the tone is still too similar to your Sunday morning cartoon. The ending is so tragically over the top, that it becomes hilarious. The strongest point is monster itself that is both a terrifying presence and the tragic figure whenever it needs to be. And the emotional core is established far better than the most post-Universal adaptations.
