Likely just cost saving methods on Universals part during the time. Same actors, same sets, same music, same writers/producers, blah blah blah. Keep in mind there was no television or video at the time so the likelihood of people noticing the same things carried over was very slim.

It's my favorite as well, and as overstuffed as the two HOUSE films are, they're so briskly-paced and have such great/fun casts I wouldn't dare carp...but I do have to give a particular shout-out to the wonderfully atmospheric and entertaining FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN, my favorite of the 1940s Universal monster sequels.

And all of the above are beautifully supported by those terrific Hans J. Salter scores...

I’m actually quite a fan of Ghost of Frankenstein for some reason. Yes a weaker entry but it comes off a bit fun. The Monster is a bit more sympathetic in this than in Son and Lugosi gives another great performance as Ygor. Chaney’s Monster is a bit dull but he had big shoes to fill regardless. Love the score as well even if about half of it is recycled from The Wolf Man. It’s also the only film in the franchise to show explicitly lightening strike the Monster.

I think GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN is a lesser entry but have to agree it's still a lot of fun: Lugosi's Ygor is a great character and the rest of the cast is top-notch...I especially like Evelyn Ankers in her sole outing in a Frankenstein film. And yes, the lightning bolt hitting the monster is one of those "classic" moments in the series.

Ghost is a big step down for me from the first three but I'd still take it over most of the sequels to the other classics.

I love GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN. It was the third Universal Frankenstein film I saw after the original and BRIDE. Watching it on Dr. Shock's Horror Theater on a Saturday afternoon is one of my happiest childhood memories. My friends and I always acted out the final "I am Ygor!" speech. Good times.

Funny story about Ghost. Keep in mind I’m kinda part of a later generation. Anyways some of you may be familiar with a race car driver named Terry Lebonte. Well he’s had a few cars with Frankenstein’s image on it. One of which was this one.



So keep in mind at the time I wasn’t familiar with every film in the Universal Monster franchise. The first time I discovered Ghost of Frankenstein was in a video store yet my immediate reaction was ‘hey that’s the image on that car!’ Lol

I ordered the Frankenstein collection from Amazon Uk. Can't wait to see the sequels in HD. I haven't seen most of them in years. I have the first two movies on Blu-Ray.

On a somewhat related note, I recently watched the film Mary Shelley and found it entertaining. While not perfect from an autobiographical standpoint, it did highlight a lot about Shelley. And Elle Fanning did a marvelous job portraying her.

Some friends and I saw a theater screening of Frankenstein tonight.

This was an amazing experience and another bucket list item that I can scratch off.

I saw Dracula at the theater a couple of years ago, both the Tod Browning film and its Spanish counterpart.

I’d love to catch the other Universal Monsters films on a big screen. Especially Creature from the Black Lagoon

Took my mother to the Frankenstein/Bride reissue around the time the Essentials collection came out. Took my dad to the Dracula double feature that you mentioned. It was fun but the image wasn’t projected corrected and basically was cropped to widescreen. Because of this some of the credits were cropped. For instance the opening title read “Presents Dracula” instead of “Carl Laemmel presents Dracula”. Wanted to go to the Creature/Revenge double feature in NY but because it would have been a semi lengthy drive from South NJ to there plus weather wasn’t exactly pleasant that day I ultimately passed.

I watched Son of Frankenstein today. I hadn't seen it in many years. It was very good. I liked it even more than Bride of Frankenstein. Basil Rathbone and Bela Lugosi were great.

My God, Frankenstein and Dracula both turn 90 next year. Nearly a century of Universal horror. What an opportunity to do a UHD. Should be relatively simple given their existing scans. These are definitely among my most wanted to hit UHD. I can live without the sequels on uhd,(temporarily) but the essentials at least should be released on uhd. They can update the first monsters boxset.

Frankenstein - a classic of the horror film
The Frankenstein film from 1931 is the first sound adaptation of the novel by Mary Shelley. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is one of the most famous works of horror literature and has been adapted countless times. However, the black and white film only uses a few motifs and characters from the novel; strictly speaking, it is based on the play of the same name by Peggy Webling. Frankenstein is still a classic of the horror film and has strongly influenced the film genre.

Oh man, if anything like that ever got a U.S. release, I don't know that I could resist the temptation. I have bought these films WAY too many times....
