USA, 1935
Directed by James Whale
Starring Boris Karloff, Elsa Lanchester (as the Bride)

DCP. Approx. 75 min.

“To new world of gods and monsters!” Karloff’s Monster learns from the blind hermit to enjoy a good smoke and speak (“friend good, fire bad”); Elsa Lachester alternates doom-laden pronouncements as author storyteller Mary Shelly and shrieks and the crazily-coiffed Bride; and Ernest Thesiger’s avatar of camp Dr. Praetorious rhapsodizes over his bottled homunculi, in Whale’s ghoulishly humorous masterpiece.


“Satirical, exciting, funny, and an influential masterpiece of art direction.”
– Roger Ebert
