  1. msmichel's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    Under-rated third film in the series continues the story many years later with the son of the mad doctor returning and being coaxed into continuing his father's work. Hard to watch without invoking the spirit of the later parody 'Young Frankenstein'. Lugosi gives a performance of note here almost making up for the ham of Rathbone's turn. The last Karloff appearance in the series.

  2. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    too fast he was interested to give the monster back to power.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    Un classique du film fantastique, qui est à mettre en parallèle avec les chefs-d'oeuvre, sur le même thème mythique, tournés par Browning, Whale, Fisher et certains metteurs en scène géniaux de la Hammer Films... www.cinefiches.com

  5. Aardsy's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    Uneven, flawed but adequate.

  6. christopherjohn's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    The weakest but most fun of the first Frankensteins. Maybe even the best set design. Mel Brooks basically just rebooted the script, heightened it only a tiny bit, and added some songs to make his masterpiece Young Frankenstein. For that alone we owe this movie great praise.

  8. SALESK's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    Lee doesn't have Whale's facility for fluid camera movement but SON OF is a very good & overlooked chapter in the FRANKENSTEIN saga. Rathbone is especially excellent, but the film belongs to Lugosi, whose physicality--stoic/creepy, menacing/impish--is a lost art. Karloff, unfortunately, doesn't have much to do. Incredible set & production design. Welcome gallows humor but overly long.

  9. Fuzzbucket's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    The image of the monser ripping off the man's prostetic arm is one of the great scenes in horror film lore.

  10. Matt's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    "I die alive; they die dead!"

  11. Spencer Draper's rating of the film Son of Frankenstein

    The film that restarted the Universal horrors for the 40's. Undeniably classic and better than Young Frankenstein would have you think. This is just so well made that you can't tear yourself away. Unfortunately none of the later sequels really kept up the same quality.
