Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Written by William Hurlbut and John L. Balderston

Directed by James Whale

Starring Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Valerie Hobson, Elsa Lanchester, Ernest Thesiger, Gavin Gordon and Douglas Walton

Plot: Mary Shelley reveals to her husband Percy and Lord Byron that the monster did not die and tells more of the story.


This movie is a classic in so many ways. From outdoing it’s predecessor to a new iconic character, to amazing acting performances and a compelling story.

Doc Frankenstein is forced by an even crazier doc to make a woman for the “monster”. The story may be a bit slower than the original but it is still super entertaining. Our “monster” wants what we all want, to be loved, to be treated with kindness. But all he receives are screams and meanness. Even after the bride is created, she is afraid of him.

This one has a beautiful and tragic ending in which our hero sheds a tear. He is completely sympathetic for us. We still consider him to be the main protagonist because he is the center of the story and basically innocent. There is no Freddy Claws in these movies because everyone is a dick to the “monster”.

Overall we really enjoyed this one, Bride is a great flick with a powerful story, Tara really liked it with a score of 68/100 and I loved it with a score of 87/100. Dj says watch this beautifully tragic and super relate-able story.
