Movie Summary

Director:
James Whale
Released:
1935
Rating:
TV-PG
The Bride of Frankenstein is the 1935 classic horror sequel to the iconic James Whale original, which also takes cues from concepts in Mary Shelley's legendary novel, and set the mold for the superior sequel. Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (Elsa Lanchester) reveals to Percy Shelley (Douglas Walton) and Lord Byron (Gavin Gordon) the events of the previous film. Neither Baron Henry Von Frankenstein (Colin Clive), nor his Monster (Boris Karloff) died. Henry survived the fall from the windmill, and the Monster went into the water beneath. Henry wants nothing more than to relax with new wife Elizabeth (Valerie Hobson), but former mentor, sinister Dr. Pretorius (Ernest Thesiger) shows up wanting him to help create life again, he even shows him some miniature people he created to convince him, but Henry refuses. His Monster meanwhile saves a girl from drowning, and is captured momentarily, but he manages to escape again. Then he forms a friendship with a blind Hermit (O.P. Heggie) who looks after him, feeds him, and teaches him to talk, before hunters chase him away. Then the Monster shows up to see Pretorius, and he thinks that Frankenstein's creation can be very useful to help him with his plan.moreless
