Released in 1939 by Universal Pictures, "The Son of Frankenstein" was one of the most anticipated movies of its time.  With the incredible accomplishment of "Bride...", the movie going public was ready to pounce on this in droves. They WERENT disappointed.

Continuing the legacy of originality and substance, "Son of.." introduces us to a new icon in horrordom, the delightfully wicked Ygor, played brilliantly by Bela Lugosi.

In many circles, it is of the opinion that Lugosi steals this movie with his performance as the Hunchbacked fiend who has made a friend, that is..the Frankenstein monster, again portrayed by the legendary Boris Karloff.

Playing the lead role in Son of Frankenstein is the great Basil Rathbone, who delivers a solid and  witty performance. 

In returning to his fathers castle 25 years after the monsters "death", Wolf happens upon old Ygor living in the delapitated laboratory of his father. 

 Once Igor shows him the monster lives, it's all over. Naturally, he feels the need to bring the monster back to form in order to rehabilitate him and clear his family's name. Does that sound like a good idea to you? Me either. 

 



 

 

 

As one could assume, Ygor uses the revived monster to fullfill his evil desires bent on revenge, having the monster murder those who sent him to the gallows causing his stretched neck, and hunchbacked condition.

Once the killing begins and Wolf's trusted butler and lab assistant, Benson, turns up missing, Inspector Krogh starts nosing around. Eventually discovering the terrible secret hidden by the Baron. That the monster not only lives, but is back in full force, killing villagers as he roams the countryside..


 

 
 

Wolf, in search of his fathers creation, takes the law he once refuted into his own hands, shooting and supposedly killing an attacking Ygor. When the monster discovers Ygor's body, he becomes furious and kidnaps Dr.Frankenstein's son, Peter. Rushing to the ruins that made up his laboratory, Wolf saves his son as he sends his fathers creature to his doom by way of some 'sulfer soup'. Yummy.

Solid performances throughout this great classic with Karloff and Lugosi in all their glory, and classic monster best. 

Truly A MUST HAVE for the avid collector.
