Gotta say I'm not all that familiar with a lot of the classic films but this is definitely one I'm glad I saw. \,,/

"Have a potato!" The first half of this movie is SUPER fun - it's loaded with hilarious jokes and sarcasm, and all the characters are unique. The last third of the movie (when the actual "scary" stuff happens) is a little random and there are some plot holes. But for a 1930s movie, this holds up really well. You will be entertained.

Pretty great. As always, James Whale directs a subversively funny and witty film.

A wonderful film and a fantastic piece of horror history. Film acting still hadn’t quite found its identity whilst trying to becomes separate art form from stage acting so it can appear “poorly acted” to a modern audience. If you love horror history give it a watch but if you’re just here for the mindless blood,boobs and gore it’s definitely not going to get your appreciation
