Critic Reviews for Ghost of Frankenstein
The thought that he may yet return for further adventures with his body and Lugosi's sconce fills us with mortal terror. That is the most fearful prospect which the picture manages to convey.
While it doesn't stand up to its predecessors, The Ghost of Frankenstein boasts an enjoyable cast and good production values.
It gets the job done with admirable efficiency, no excess of imagination, and all in a compact 67-minute frame, and you really wouldn't want it to be any longer than that.

Audience Reviews for Ghost of Frankenstein
Despite the short running time (which was commonplace during that time period), 'Ghost of Frankenstein' is a rather ambitious installment in the venerable franchise. Instead of a story about the revitalization of dead tissue, the plot is more sinister and conniving with Igor hoodwinking the estranged son of Dr. Frankenstein to transplant his brain in the monster's brawny body. Lugosi is still gruffly despicable as Igor whose allegiance to the monster finally devolves into a highly manipulative relationship where he rescues the monster from being lynched by a village mob only to preserve his body for his ulterior motives. The sets are impeccably gothic and the pyrotechnic demolition of the mansion at the beginning is an explosive hook. Overall, 'Ghost of Frankenstein' is a sterling example of Universal's carte blanche with Mary Shelley's classic novel.
One of the better universal monster movie sequels. It's got all the good actors, a good story, and it's exciting.
I don't remember much about it, to be honest, so I guess that's not saying much. I'm sure it has its moments.
