Bride of the Monster Reviews

    One of my new favorites great to see Bela and Tor being honored in their golden year too bad he never got a decent budget much better then so many of his contemporaries. The cast is all very entertaining especially Loretta King and Tony McCoy!

    A rip off of Bride of Frankenstein. I love Ed Wood and Bela Lugosi, but this is kitsch.

    Here's a legendary Ed Wood masterpiece. Due to financial failure, and unedited mistakes throughout the movie (his signature), this was a charmer. Note:contributions from a church, with the promise of a box office hit - was what got this movie finished. Unfortunately the movie was a flop. Maybe it was the massive Octopus (they stole from another set, to use for the action scene), that captured my attention. This mutated monster guarded the abandoned old haunted house that was being used for Dr. Vornoff's science lab (hidden behind a secret fire place). Lobo (Tor Johnson) played Lugosi's mutated giant assistant! So awesome. If you notice, Tor falls back in a fight, and almost tore down Ed Wood's incredibly cheap cardboard set. Amazing. The Dr, failed at tested his first human subject, and was on a mission to find another. Reporters compared some similarities to a previous case, to a Loch Ness Monster hidden in a lake nearby. There's a wonderfully cheesy snake creatures, alligator things,in a disgusting swamp... it's a must see.

    It's an Ed Wood film, so of course it's astoundingly awful in any ways, but you know, this is actually pretty good for an Ed Wood film. The cinematography is much better than usual, the budget is a bit higher, the actors do a better job than usual, and the story ain't half bad. Of course this is all relative to Wood's other works, but this movie shows that under different circumstances perhaps he wouldn't have been quite as talentless as it seems that he hopelessly was.

    Lined with the signature traits of Ed Wood movies, Bride of the Monster manages to be watchable solely for the cinematography and the acting of Bela Lugosi himself.

    Not necessarily a good movie, but still fun.

    A gigant octopus, guns that look like fireworks and an evil doctor with hypnotic eyes. This is Ed Wood.

    This is truly an Ed Wood film. Another of his classic shit, last film to star Lugosi as Dr. Eric Vornoff. Also starring Tor Johnson and Tony McCoy. An overuse of stock-footage, badly acted and the effects don't stand up. Even the set is extremely cheap. There has been a colorized version but i have never seen it i recommend the black-and-white.

    This is one of Ed Wood's better attempts at a legitimately good film, whether this is because of the other people involved were more skilled or Ed got lucky is anyone's guess. With that being said, its still an Ed Wood film so sit back and enjoy the badness.
