The Bride of Frankenstein

The Bride of Frankenstein ★★★★½

Spooky Lucy Season 2021 Ranked

James Whale took everything that made the first Frankenstein work and made it grander, more emotional, and, in the end, all the more poignant!

I recommend watching "Frankenstein" and "The Bride of Frankenstein" as one film! The experience is so rewarding and it's incredible to see the themes set up in "Frankenstein" payed off in "The Bride of Frankenstein"!

There's so much nuance and symbolism that really blew me away here! Themes of god, faith, morality, and mortality are all at play in full force here! I don't usually expect to see such sophisticated ideas and visuals in old films like this!

A near-masterpiece! I know James Whale is dead, but he should be damn proud!
