The Bride Of Frankenstein
6:00pm - Monday, Oct 25, 2021
The Rio Theatre's seasonal deep dive into Halloween-y favourites continues on Monday, October 25 with one of the all-time great monster movies, James Whale's iconic THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN. This 1935 sequel to Whale's 1931 film FRANKENSTEIN retained the legendary Boris Karloff as the eponymous, mortally challenged creation.
After recovering from injuries sustained in the mob attack upon himself and his creation, Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) falls under the control of his former mentor, Dr. Pretorius (Ernest Thesiger), who insists the now-chastened doctor resume his experiments in creating new life. Meanwhile, the Monster (Karloff) remains on the run from those who wish to destroy him without understanding that his intentions are generally good despite his lack of socialization and self-control. With Elsa Lanchester, Valerie Hobson.
"James Whale's erudite genius brings it all together. He sculpts every nuance of self-parody, social satire, horror, humour, wit and whimsy into a dazzling whole, keeping every one of his fantastical plates spinning until the tragic, inevitable finale." (Empire Magazine)
"Another astonishing chapter in the career of the Monster." (New York Times)
