A successful sequel to the 1931 hit as the world's most famous monster is on the lookout for a wife. Some very scary fun. Some of the scenes in the movie are spoofed in Mel Brooks' 1974 comedy "Young Frankenstein."
Author Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley wrote "Frankenstein" on a bet that her story is more frightenibng than the rest. she won the bet. that story came to the screen in 1931, the same year that "Dracula" hits the screen. Boris Karloff gives life to the creature. This movie is scary by 1931 standards, but stood the test of time today. I'd rather take this film over the bloody and gory stuff of today.
