    Love the Outpost movies. This one's the best, though.

    Bride of Frankenstein

    Surprisingly, I have not seen Bride of Frankenstein, so it was interesting to sit down and see what prior knowledge I had going in through references in other shows and movies. I thought the opening prologue is fascinating because oh how meta it got by having Elsa Lanchester play Mary Shelley (who also plays the bride). Much like any sequel, they do push the thing people love the most about the original more and in this case it's Frankenstein's monster. Boris Karloff basically takes over the movie over Colin Clive and for the most part, and I think it was for the better. They give a lot of character development to the monster as his mind is starting to grow and the scenes where he's on the run is great. Particularly the scene with the blind man is easily the most emotionally moving scene in the movie aside from the ending.

    I will say though I thought the movie wasn't nearly as tight as the first movie. They do add more sideplots that don't necessarily add much to the movie like Minnie or the homunculi (even though I enjoyed Doctor Pretorius as a great mad scientist). One of my biggest issues with the movie is they give so little screentime to the Bride. But what they do with that little time was indeed really well executed. Overall I'll give the edge to the original, but I do admire this a lot.

    Saw this with the title House of a 1,000 DOLLS. It stars Vincent Price as a nightclub magician/illusionist who hypnotizes, kidnaps, and then sells women to white slavers in Tangiers. Actor George Nader co-stars as a "C" level James Bond type investigating the disappearances of the women.

    I'm baffled this didn't get a wide theatrical release. It was a great time and such an intense horror film.

    Not sure where else to ask this really but I'm asking for a friend as well as myself. Can anyone recommend any modern made films that have that somewhat dirty indie feel along the lines of Requiem for a Dream, Kids, Spun, Bully, etc?

    Thanks for the reply but personally I love that film. I know it's slow as hell but I like what Noe did with that.

    Son of Frankenstein

    Pretty tamed compared to the first two films and that might be because James Whale didn't return to direct. The movie definitely marks the more sanitized Universal Monster movies. I can see where Mel Brooks got his idea for Young Frankenstein because it deals with the son of Dr. Frankenstein traveling to the village where his farther lived and not getting a warm welcome. Baron Frankenstein is probably the only interesting character in the movie because of what he's grappling with. As for Boris Karloff as the Monster, it's a shame they've lowered his intelligence down a bit after Bride, it would have been more fascinating if he was able to talk in complete sentences to Baron Frankenstein. Not sure how I feel about Bela Lugosi as Ygor, it's an interesting take on the assistant role, but I feel like Fritz was way more ideal and not nearly as nefarious. Overall, I enjoyed it for what it is. There's some good parts in here, but I would have liked a more ballsier approach to this story.
