Bride of Frankenstein (1935) Review:

Bride of Frankenstein was made 4 years after the original film by the same director James Whale. The least we can say is that it is really worthy of the success of the original, some even say better…

In this film, Frankenstein’s monster appears, at first, to be different for the original, he is a lot more violent and scary, killing without mercy. But then, and that is what I love in this film, he’s evolving into a touching but brutal figure, showing a lot of emotions, liking music, crying, etc.

The character of Dr. Pretorious is fascinating too (played wonderfully by a guy named Ernest Thesiger). He is a classic character, the typical mad scientist, but he adds the little craziness that was missing in the first episode. The scene in which he presents his little monsters is really cool!

Overall, this sequel is very good. If you liked the original film you will, for sure, like this one too. Personally, I can’t decide which one I prefer.
