Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
sequels in those days much better than nowadays
Brilliant movie. Also, nearly identical to
Mel Brooks "Young Frankenstein".
For the most part it is nothing more than a blatant retread of the original, except with different characters and notably improved filming techniques, which are almost entirely helpless in saving the film.
Completely bonkers sequel to the original James Whale classic. The most striking elements are its Expressionist production design and lighting, and the almost comic tone - very obviously the major influence on Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. Basil Rathbone declaims every line as if subtlety is a waste of time, Bela Lugosi seems to have borrowed the Wolfman's make-up, and it's once again left to Boris Karloff to supply the humanity and vulnerability. Good fun.
This was kinda boring. But there are some things to like about it, which made it have potential!
Good, but not great. Some great sets, music, and of course Karloff and Lugosi.
This film falls just short of the previous two, but is incredibly well made in its own right. Having The Monster return to his silent version is a smart move, and Karloff doesn't disappoint. Also fun is Lugosi's sleazebag Ygor, who can't help but brag about surviving a hanging. This is a very good entry in the series, that at times borders on excellent.
Probably my favorite of the Frankenstein sequels. This movie was creepy, and epic with a creepy igor, and exellent acting I loved this sequel.
In my opinion the best of all the Frankenstein horror films. Basil Rathbone, Josephine Hutchinson, Boris Karloff, Lionel Atwill and Bela Lugosi were all very good.
Inferior to Karloff's first two ventures as the Monster and a little too fantastic, but way better than most of the Universal horror films that came out during the second cycle.
