Movie Info

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.

Middling Universal horror fodder, at best.

Movie Chambers

Pretty much the end of Universal's horror line as a home for even the vaguest kind of serious filmmaking.

Audience Reviews for Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man


Pretty good sequels, not the best, but still worth seeing.

Super Reviewer

Enjoyable old Universal Studios sequel with Lon Chaney, Jr. reprising his role as Larry Talbot (aka The Wolf Man). Bela Lugosi is less than spectacular as Frankenstein's monster but that may have more to do with Boris Karloff's absence than Lugosi's presence.

Super Reviewer

Fairly mediocre. still, the atmosphere of universal pictures horror classics and two of its greatest monsters face-to-face is what saves it. good to see Lugosi playing the monster he once refused to incarnate.
