Bride of Frankenstein (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on June 1, 2008

Popular opinion seems to overwhelmingly favor this sequel to the original, but I have to go against the grain on this one.  It’s much, MUCH goofier with its limp attempts at humor, Dr. Pretorius’ miniature creations, and the monster becoming more human.  And I was really stunned to discover (since I’d long forgotten the last time I saw it) that the “bride” doesn’t appear until the final moments of the film.  Perhaps this movie is more nuanced than its predecessor, but I found it less exciting and less entertaining.  Rating: 7
