31 Days of Horror 3: The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

DAY 21
I loved the first Frankenstein movie but this one I find to be so much better.
In the movie it is revealed that Dr. Frankenstein and his monster are alive! Dr. Frankenstein wants to get out of the evil experiment business (I didn't know that was a career path), but trouble rises when another mad scientist, Dr. Pretorius, kidnaps his wife. To get her back, Dr. Frankenstein agrees to help him create a new creature to be a female companion for the monster.
I would have to say that this was the peak of the Universal monsters. Director James Whale does a great job in creating such a classic and most likely the best horror sequel ever made.
The movie has you from start to finish and it will keep you long after that.
If you want to see a classic then look no further, The Bride of Frankenstein is one of the ultimate classics in the horror genre.
