The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

All the best movie sequels resurrect characters that were killed off in the first movie; Ripley in Alien: Resurrection, Letty in Fast & Furious 6, Chev in Crank: High Voltage and Curly in City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly’s Gold. So when the Bride of Frankenstein begins with the monster literally clawing his way out of the fiery ruins of the windmill, you know that the stars have aligned and you are about to witness a true Hollywood sequel. According to Hollywood lore director James Whale initially refused to direct The Bride of Frankenstein because as he put it he felt he had already "squeezed the idea dry" with Frankenstein (1931). Now that’s a man with scruples! However, Universal Pictures eventually lured him in by (I’m guessing) telling him he could do whatever he wanted. Despite his misgivings, Whale does manage to squeeze some juice out of this shriveled idea...although the juice smelled oddly like embalming fluid and I suspect he drank some of it. Join Martin, Melinda and a special guest as they explore this iconic film that ventures into some truly bizarre territory...
