The Bride of Frankenstein

The Bride of Frankenstein ★★★★

These sequels, trying to lure us with new special effects, repeated plotlines, retconning characters back to life, making monsters into comic relief...
This is probably one of the best sequels ever made and just might be the first to be better than the original.
Also, that prologue. The framing device being Mary Shelley telling what happened after the story, after they recount what happened in the last movie... that was almost completely different from Shelley's book... huh... anyway, that made no sense but I liked it.
