The Bride of Frankenstein

The Bride of Frankenstein ★★★★

Certainly rehashes some of the same ideas and lines as the first, but also goes further into exploring Frankenstein's monster's humanity. The few scenes with the blind man are some of the best, and if Boris Karloff's performance in the original hadn't already won you over, it certainly would here. Whale was clearly interested in pushing the scale of the original. The creation scene here is longer, with more machine and props.
