Following on from the success of 1931’s Frankenstein, Boris Karloff reprised his role as Frankenstein’s monster in the 1935 sequel, The Bride of Frankenstein.
Henry Frankenstein – Victor in the book – under duress from his former mentor forced to create a mate for his monster. Like most others, the Bride immediately judges Frankenstein’s monster because she doesn’t know any better; they’re both flawed creatures, created by flawed people, with little opportunity to learn any better.
The title of the film is rather deceptive as the Bride features very little, and meets her demise along with Frankenstein’s monster.
Read into it what you will: that true love doesn’t exist or cannot be forced; that it takes time to learn one’s true character; or recognising that nobody is perfect. Just as the book and the films can be interpreted in a myriad of ways, there may be various reasons as to why you want a Bride of Frankenstein or Frankenstein’s monster tattoo.
