Week 6: A film directed by James Whale
Following on from one of the most famous tales of all time, James Whale manages to deliver a sequel that deserves its title of "One of the best sequels ever made". He manages to fit in complete empathy for the monster, scenes that are either heartfelt, tense or humorous, along with powerful acting, and a fantastic extension of the source material. And all within a lean 75 Minute runtime.
An outright masterpiece that stands the test of time. But then, you'd merely have to witness The Bride to know that. 4 minutes she appears in, and Elsa Lanchester owns every scene she appears in. No wonder she remains a staple of pop culture.
