The Bride of Frankenstein Reviews


TIME Magazine
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Screenwriters Hurlbut & Balderston and Director James Whale have given it the macabre intensity proper to all good horror pieces, but have substituted a queer kind of mechanistic pathos for the sheer evil that was Frankenstein.

Karloff manages to invest the character with some subtleties of emotion that are surprisingly real and touching.

Whale added an element of playful sexuality to this version, casting the proceedings in a bizarre visual framework that makes this film a good deal more surreal than the original.

Whale's most perfectly realised movie, a delight from start to finish.

Seen today, Whale's masterpiece is more surprising than when it was made because today's audiences are more alert to its buried hints of homosexuality, necrophilia and sacrilege. But you don't have to deconstruct it to enjoy it.

The Bride of Frankenstein has an in-your- face audacity that hasn't dimmed all that much after 63 years.
