“The Monster demands a mate!” When Dr. Frankenstein is successfully compelled to create a companion for his monstrous creation, the results are predictably dangerous and destructive. And yet… Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester manage to make their strange, largely wordless courtship heart-breakingly genuine despite the pounds of makeup.

“Whale’s erudite genius brings it all together. He sculpts every nuance of self-parody, social satire, horror, humour, wit and whimsy into a dazzling whole, keeping every one of his fantastical plates spinning until the tragic, inevitable finale.” – Simon Braund, Empire Magazine
