James Whale / USA 1935 / 1h15m / Digital
Cast: Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Valerie Hobson, Elsa Lanchester, Ernest Thesiger.
This is a tremendous sequel to Whale's own original, with a clever prologue between Byron and Mary Shelley setting the scene for the revival of both Frankenstein and his monster. What distinguishes the film is its macabre humour and sense of parody. Strong on atmosphere, Gothic sets and expressionist camerawork, it is - along with The Old Dark House - Whale's most perfectly realised movie, a delight from start to finish.'From a review for timeout.com'
