1935 - THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, the classic horror comedy

The classic Universal Horror film.  Directed by James Whale who probably didn't do one thing wrong throughout the film.  The Bride of Frankenstein combines horror and comedy so assuredly that you can only wonder how they got it all right for this film.

The stylized studio sets, the casting of Karloff as the monster the moody black and white photography and the acting create a one of a kind horror film that probably hasn't been topped since it came out in 1935.  Whale edited the film down from ninety to seventy five minutes so there isn't a wasted moment in the entire picture.

75 minutes.

A brilliant film.
