Bride of Frankenstein (22-Apr-1935)

Director: James Whale

Writers: William Hurlbut; John Balderston

From novel: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Music: Franz Waxman

Producer: Carl Laemelle, Jr.

Keywords: Horror, Frankenstein

Although the monster clearly died in the conflagration finale of the first film, it somehow survived. Now a Dr. Pretorius, also researching the creation of life, convinces Dr. Frankenstein that his monster must have a mate. Director James Whale only agreed to making this sequel after he was granted total creative control over the project. While Frankenstein (1931) is a masterpiece, this exceeds it. Perhaps the best horror film of all time.
