Lauren Stoolfire’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is my favorite of the classic Frankenstein movies. I just thought during this watch during the scene when the monster is learning to smoke that at least he probably does have to worry about getting lung cancer since he is literally made of dead bodies. As usual, though, I don't blame the bride at all for her reaction - I mean, she was freshly dead and just resurrected via many lightning bolts to her person. Maybe if they had warned her before the monster came on the scene... Maybe? I really wish she was onscreen for more than 5 minutes before that explosive. What kind of move is that anyway?
