Bride of Frankenstein
Reviewed by Jan 17th, 2010

Lanchester’s performance as the Bride certainly makes an impression, even though she only appears in the last few minutes of the film.Boris Karloff famously disagreed with the decision to make the monster speak, but it works well in the end. “Alone bad. Friend good.” He utters in one immortal line.

We learn in the beginning that the monster didn’t actually die in the first movie, he ran around being woefully misunderstood and making friends with an old blind man in the forest. Dr. Praetorius convinces Dr. Frankenstein to build a mate for his monster, with predictably disastrous results. A shining example of a good sequel.
