Karloff, Rathbone and Atwill are at the top of the game of their game as LUGOSI STEALS THE SHOW!

"Son of Frankenstein" no se le acerca a la original "Frankenstein" o a la gran "Bride of Frankenstein", sin embargo es una interesante secuela que reúne a Karloff y a Bela Lugosi (en un papel muy peculiar como Ygor) y que presenta un diseño de producción inspirado en el expresionismo alemán.
La historia nos sitúa muchos años después de "Bride", introduciéndonos al hijo del doctor y a su familia quien se muda al castillo y que pronto descubrirán que quizás el monstruo no murió en ese terrible incendio.
"Son of Frankenstein" es una interesante película con momentos memorables. Indispensable para fanáticos de la serie de monstruos de Universal.

Cheap, never scary,and relentlessly annoying, "Son of Frankenstein" is a waste of time and an absolute disgrace to the name Frankenstein. Utter bullshit.

Not as good as the original, but I preferred it to 'Bride of Frankenstein'. Basil Rathbone is the main attraction here. And the production design is out of this world! Some of the coolest-looking sets I've ever seen. Fun to see Lionel Atwill as the Inspector.

1931's Frankenstein Is One Of My Favorite Films.

New Age set designs, Lugosi's stellar performance as Igor and eerie scens between the Frankenstein Monster and a child make this a classic. Some of the doctors scens are hammy though.

In many ways this is the most unique of all the Frankenstein sequels. It's also on of the most unique Universal horror movies ever made. Amazing set design, great cast, great script, etc. A full length feature film!

Good sequel, Boris Karloff is awesome and so is Bela Lugosi. A lot of the jokes in Young Frankenstein came from this movie.

God I love this movie. Karloff's last time starring as the Monster, Basil Rathbone as Wolf von Frankenstein, Bela Lugosi as Igor, and Lionell Atwill as Krogh; what's not to love? All sorts of fun!!

Maker of monsters

The son of Frankenstein returns home to claim his estate and he is quickly revolted by how the public views his father. His father was a scientific genius but his neighbors view him differently. The son of Frankenstein finds the monster in a comma in the basement of the estate. He decides, with the aid of Igor, to stop at nothing to revive the monster and correct the views of the Frankenstein family.

"Two bullets in his heart and he still lives."

Rowland Lee, director of The Count of Monte Cristo (1934), Captain Kidd, The Son of Monte Cristo, A Night of Terror, The Toast of New York, and The Mysterious Dr. Fu Manchu, delivers Son of Frankenstein. The storyline for this picture is entertaining and worth following. The characters are very interesting and this doesn't feel like the classic ridiculous sequel based on the "son of" plot. The cast delivers awesome performances and includes Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lionel Atwill, and Basil Rathbone.

"Tell us the truth or we'll hang you again."

I DVR'd this picture off Turner Classic Movies (TCM) this past Halloween. I was excited to see this movie based on its amazing cast. I will say it was entertaining and unpredictable and I loved Bela Lugosi as Igor (my favorite character in this picture). I do strongly recommend seeing this horror classic gem.

"It's alive."

Classic monster movie. A respectable showing but lacking the same magic as some of the originals.
