BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN
by James Whale
Country: USA
Year: 1935
Duration: 75'


The masterpiece of the Universal series, one of the best horror movies ever, and the model for Young Frankenstein by Mel Brooks: at first, Whale didn’t want to return to the theme but then he tinged his imagination with humor. Besides the Baron and his Creature (who now speaks), enter the Bride with the electric hair (highly-cited) and mad Dr. Pretorius with his humanoids and amazing inventions. Introduced by Mary Shelley in person, Elsa Lanchester, a disturbing lady with a perverse imagination.
