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.

This was to be [director James Whale's] last horror film. Small wonder; what could he possibly have left to prove?
