    The original is definitely awesome for its time. The 2010 remake doesn’t have the same luster so I say stick with the original!

    Did you know that Lugosi got crap for his Frankenstein Monster. Critics said he was to stiff. What they did not know is that Lugosi was told the monster was blind at this point…..but that was never explained in the movie.

    I noticed the similarities between this movie’s music and Danny Elfman’s score too the first time I watched it!

    I wish Boris Karloff played Frankenstein in the House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula films. But anyway, great review, I enjoyed the remake too.

    This is some classic shit right here! I do laugh at the fact that the Wolf Man strangled people, instead of biting them though

    this movie kicks ass i only have one complaint (Spoiler alert) at the end how can they not tell larry was killed with a blunt object when bela the fortune teller died they knew right away, i find it hard to believe the story would end like that larrys father would probably go to jail making it an even more tragic event

      I’m guessing they didn’t wanna show it cus then it’d b extra fucked up.

      They’ve got into it in movies before. I’ve never seen em but I pick Wolfman he’s jus a monster only run by instinct.

    Yeah :O the Batman score… what happened? Did Elfman rip off the score of Wolfman?

    Lon Chaney Jr. keeps his father’s legacy alive through his performance as the smooth Larry. I like the complexity about his character and his conflict. How no one believes him and he barley believes him himself. He’s a killer by nature only. Great atmosphere throughout especially with the fog in the streets and woods. The wolf make up is a awesome. Just Like James said it misses the bad ass transformation every film with a monster needs. Performances are all good and the leading actress is beautiful. The end is surprisingly messed up. I dig it.

    The wolf man is definitely one of my favorite classic universal monsters and is next to the 1931 Dracula in my opinion.
