"The trouble with free women, Charles, is they're free to despise us. It's a risk I find unacceptable."
3 November 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Reworking of Bride of Frankenstein lacks the wonderful dark humor and...well, pretty much everything good about that classic film. There are some good things here, though. The blind hermit from the original Bride is replaced by a midget, excellently played by David Rappaport. His scenes with Clancy Brown are the best in the movie. Far better than the stuff with Sting and Jennifer Beals. Once Rappaport is gone, the movie becomes far less interesting. Aside from Rappaport, Clancy Brown also does a decent job in a role that's easy to overplay. Sting is competent. Jennifer Beals is terrible in most respects. She seems out of her element throughout the film. The scene with her and the cat was enough to earn her that Razzie Award nomination she received for this movie. Aside from Rappaport and Brown, the movie's other strength is that it is well-photographed. Unfortunately its few qualities aren't enough to make it a truly good movie. It's worth a peek if you're a fan of anything Frankenstein.
