The fifth film in Universal's "Frankenstein" series goes for the box-office gold by combining two--count 'em, two!--of the studio's star monsters. We all thought that Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.), alias The Wolf Man, had been shot dead in his own starring film in 1941, but the opening scenes of Frankenstein vs. the Wolf Man prove us incorrect. Brought back to the land of the living, the anguished Talbot commiserates with gypsy lady Maria Ouspenskaya, who advises him that the only way he'll stay

Pretty much the end of Universal's horror line as a home for even the vaguest kind of serious filmmaking.
"The last great Universal Frankenstein movie, despite the overstuffed title."
It starts off really well, stalls a little toward the middle, goes bonkers for one really odd musical number, and then derails completely at the end.
Great title, tepid movie.
Doesn't deliver all that much of what the title promises.
