A Brief Review On 1935 James Whales' "The Bride Of Frankenstein"

677 words - 3 pages

The Bride of Frankenstein"The Bride of Frankenstein" was made in 1935 as a continuation of "Frankenstein" of 1931. The film started with the camera panning toward the window, shooting the storm of lightning and thunder.

For example, in the forest scene, the monster saw his own reflection on the pond of water, he cried and strike the water so to blur his reflection. These simple actions would better indicate his low self esteem and anger towards his appearance than if he kept talking to himself complaining which would make him looks like an idiot. In the scene where he met the blind man in the woods, his gentle action and friendly facial expression suit best the atmosphere. Both being handicapped in a way, the slow movements and quietness depicted a peaceful friendship between...
