With Boris Karloff, Elsa Lanchester, Colin Clive
Not Rated, 75 minutes, Blu-ray
After the success of his previous Frankenstein film, James Whale got the band back together for a sequel, which introduces a love interest with perhaps the most recognizable updo in history. After recovering from injuries sustained in the mob attack upon himself and his creation, Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) falls under the control of his former mentor, Dr. Pretorius (Ernest Thesiger), who insists the now-chastened doctor resume his experiments in creating new life. Meanwhile, the Monster (Boris Karloff) remains on the run from those who wish to destroy him without understanding that his intentions are generally good despite his lack of socialization and self-control.
