    Frankenstein Meets the Space Monster

    ★★★½

    Never know how to rate these things. It was fun. Enjoyably bad. I watched it while writing a couple emails and it worked perfectly. This is one of my dad's favorite movies because it was filmed around where he grew up and he saw it all the time as a kid.

    Lots of vampire imagery in this. He exploits and sucks the life out of everything he touches. Major motif is him showing up at people’s doors, begging to be invited in. Always drinking that red soda. Even preys on a young redhead girl nicknamed Strawberry.

    What takes Bride of Frankenstein from being just a fantastic Universal horror film to an all-time classic of the genre is how it works on so many levels.

    Most importantly, it's campy, cheesy fun, with every scene packing in horror and humor and heart, never becoming boring, and wrapping up in a neat 75 minutes. In essence, it is the perfect old-timey monster movie.

    Beyond that, as James Whale's last horror film, it's a subtle deconstruction…
