Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Bride of Frankenstein (1935) is a horror film sequel to Frankenstein (1931) also directed by James Whale and written by William Hurlbut and John L. Balderston. Despite realizing the error of his ways Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) is forced to create a mate for his monster by the insane Dr. Septimus Pretorius (Earnest Thesiger) who has been making monsters of his own. 

DADDY: What did you think of the movie? 

LILLY: I thought it was pretty good but a bit short.

DADDY: I love this film. Would you have liked to have seen more of the bride (Elsa Lanchester)?

LILLY: Why yes.

DADDY: Did you like it more than the first film


DADDY: Who was your favourite character?

LILLY: The monster (Boris Karloff). I felt sorry for him.

DADDY: He's my favourite too, he didn't ask to be a monster did he?


DADDY: I think the real monsters are the mad scientists.

LILLY: I think the monsters are the people who hunt him down and hate him because he looked like one.

DADDY: What was your favourite moment?

LILLY: My favourite moment would be when the blind man treated him like like a normal person because he couldn't see him.

DADDY: Yeah that is great and he learns to speak.

LILLY: A bit.

DADDY: "Drink gooooood!"

LILLY: "Smoke gooooood!"


DADDY: Would you recommend it to your friends?

LILLY: No because they wouldn't like a black and white movie.

DADDY: That is a shame.


DADDY: You rock!

LILLY: You know it daddy.

DADDY: How many stars would you give it?

LILLY: Fifteen.

DADDY: Me too, it is better than the first film.


Lilly and Daddy would like to thank the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art for screening such a fabulous season of monster movies. The season continues until June 2 and you can find out more here:

  1. I love reading or hearing kid's opinions of the old classics.
    I think "Revenge of the Creature" has been the one that they all love the most...especially in 3D!
    "Horror of Dracula" surprises them with it's intense scenes of horror.
    And "One Million Years B.C." is still "way-cool".
