"The monster lives! Again! Picking
up where Son of Frankenstein left off, Bela
Lugosi's gnarled Ygor survives yet
another rampage by angry, torch-carrying villagers and frees
the monster (The Wolf Man himself, Lon
Chaney Jr., taking over from Boris
Karloff) from his sulfur grave.
The latest cinematic Frankenstein scion, brain surgeon Ludwig
wants to dissect the creature, but the ghost of his father
convinces him to save it by giving it a new, "good"
brain. Ygor has his own devious plan and enlists Ludwig's
shady assistant (Lionel Atwill)
in a brain-switching scheme." -
Universal's fourth (out of five) in the
Frankenstein series was pretty good even though it had a low
budget. Bela Lugosi's
portrayal of Igor was a nice one to say the least. The role
fits him perfectly. Most of the other actors did a very good
job as well. The plot is pretty nice and well-paced wich keeps
you interested all the way, and the atmosphere is nice and
chilling at times too.
It's a pretty "simple" movie though, but it entertains
and I recommend it to fans of classic cinema!
