Ghost of Frankenstein, The (1942)

Directors: Erle C. Kenton
Starring: Bela Lugosi

Genre: Horror



Synopsis:
"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 (Cedric Hardwicke), 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." - from MoviesForMe


My oppinion:
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!

My rating:
