Frankenstein was my least favorite of the monsters growing up, but holy cow Son of Frankenstein was easily one of my most watched Universal movies back then and I’m happy to report it’s still as Delightful as ever —the sets, pacing, rain filled/fog fueled Universal atmos, a town suffocated by paranoia/fear, a bubbling sulfur pit, and the mythos/lore are all top notch as far as I’m concerned—plus I’m a huge fan of Rathbone, Atwill, and the MVP of this movie... Lugosi, as the deviously sinister Ygor.
An excellent follow up to Bride, from the thunderstorm opening/Baron arriving to a packed square of people who already hate him to the action packed laboratory finale. A winner for sure, and STILL a go to movie for me when it comes to Universal horror. Only complaint is excruciatingly annoying voice on the kid... I dunno whatever the hell accent that was but oof. Minus a star for him lol.
