Did You Know?

Trivia:
Edward D. Wood Jr. began shooting this film - then called "Bride of the Atom" - in October 1954 on a tiny sound stage in Los Angeles called Ted Allan Studios. He ran out of money after just three days and had to shut down production.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Many movie sources cite that in this film Bela Lugosi flubbed a line in which he described Tor Johnson's character as being "harmless as a kitchen". Legend has it Wood didn't have time or money enough to do a second take. But on watching the movie, one discovers that Lugosi says the line correctly.See more »
Quotes:
Prof. Strowski:Now I am here, sent to bring you home.
Dr. Eric Vornoff:Home? I have no home. Hunted, despised, living like an animal! The jungle is my home. But I will show the world that I can be its master! I will perfect my own race of people. A race of atomic supermen which will conquer the world! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Not so bad…not so bad at all, 12 December 2004
Author: patherto from Frostbite Falls, MN

I really don't think this deserves the "honor" of being in the Bottom 100 of all times. I've seen much worse films without nearly the notoriety. In "Bride of the Monster," Edward Wood shows himself to be a typically competent director doing a typical low-rent horror film. There are no mistakes in continuity, the lighting is adequate, the performances are pretty good…how "Plan 9" came from the same director is beyond me. I *am* put off by the DVD, though. For a premium price, you get the film, the trailer, and chapter stops—that's all, folks. If this is supposed to be a camp classic, I could at least hope for some interviews, outtakes, and other amusements. The transfer isn't bad, with few scratches or specks that I noticed and a faithful rendering of the black-and-white movies of that era.
