Movie: Bride of Frankenstein
Starring: Boris Karloff, Elsa Lanchester
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Comedy,
Plot: The monster is still alive and now has knowledge. Meanwhile, Frankenstein's college professor has returned and wants him to help him to create a perfect woman.
I don't know if it was ever meant to have comedic elements in it or if it's just the fact the movie is 77 years old; but there are moments that you can't help but laugh at the downright ridiculousness of it. Like the smoking scene and the people under glass.
For a movie that has become part of such an iconic moment -where Frankenstein screams that she's alive and then the removing of the bandages from the Bride- the rest of the movie is almost forgotten in it's length. At a bare 84minutes, it seems to rehash it's own plot more then a few times making it feel much longer.
One bright star in this is Dwight Frye who plays one of the grave robbers. He's buried under blonde hair and make-up but there's no mistaking the wide eyed bugeater from Dracula.
What do I think I learned from this film?
Never to judge a book by it's cover.
