Staying up late in the late 70's and early 80's, I fell in love with the classic Universal Monster movies and have desired to purchase them all again for sentimental reasons. After managing to acquire a few - the rest were contained in a 'Monster Legacy' box set way too expensive on region 2 format, I was pleasantly surprised to discover on my browsing in Amazon that Universal have released them as single volume purchases.
For me the sequals were what I remember fondly. And they were always the ones hard to get hold of.
Frankenstein meets the Wolfman is the usual Universal fare. Larry Talbot - AKA the wolfman - is awoken from his grave by graverobbers and after a killing spree finds himself in a hospital in Cardiff - yes Cardiff! I had to skip back to make sure I'd not misheard or drunk too much real ale myself - and trys to convince doctors that he is a murdering wolf by moonlight and is seeking a cure. Classic Lon Chaneys pleading cries of 'Can you help me? Oh please say you can.' just add to the dark gothic humour of the film.
He escapes the hospital and makes it across the water to eastern europe where he discovers the frozen Frankenstein monster, played by Bela Lugosi - and cast totally wrongly in the role, I'm afaid to say. Nonetheless, Talbot trys to get the monster to find the late doctors notes which may cure him without success, and it is only a meeting with Baroness Frankenstein which secures them.
After Talbots doctor at the hospital in Cardiff tracks him down and gets obsessed - what a surprise! - with doctor Frankensteins creation, his focus turns to the monster becoming stronger with no thought for poor Larry Talbots dilema at all.
It all turns nasty, the monsters apparently die and the villagers are happy that yet another mad doctor is no more.

A most enjoyable film from the early Frankenstein series. The Wolfman's body is discovered by grave-diggers and comes back to life. He wishes to be rid of his curse and meets up with an old gipsy woman. She tells him of Dr. Frankenstein who perished some time previously. It is believed that Frankenstein's notes were kept somewhere in his castle; so the Wolfman and the gipsy, journey there together. They discover the monster and employ the expertise of another Frankenstein member who agrees to help, but the local villages are not happy ... the special effects are quite good in this film and it is well worth watching to find out what happens :o]

The legendary Bela Lugosi, originally slated to play the Monster in James Whale's original, finally takes the role in this classic Universal Horror film. Lugosi imbues the monster with a deeply human sense of isolation, loss and suspicion. Far more eerie and horrifying than the Ghost of Frankenstein, this title also features Lon Chaney as the Wolfman. Well worth buying - a genuine classic.

FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLFMAN 1943 Region 2 DVD 2011

Back in the 1980s I replaced most of my collection of 8mm movies with VHS and now I am going through a same process of upgrading everything to DVD. This also gives me the excuse to revisit films which I have not seen for some time.

FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLFMAN was sequel to `The Wolfman' and was the fifth in the Frankenstein follow on films picking up where `The Ghost of Frankenstein' left off. The role of Larry Talbot (The Wolf Man) is reprised by Lon Chaney Jr.; who is accidentally resurrected by grave robbers and goes in search of a cure for his lycanthropic infliction and seeks aid from Dr. Mannering, Patric Knowles, and together they go in search of the ruined castle of Dr Frankenstein where Knowles intends to bring Frankenstein's monster back to life. For this outing Universal Studios cast Bela Lugosi as the monster, the part that he had famously turned down in 1931. It had been intended that the monster was to have dialogue in the movie but after the first rushes Lugosi's voice was cut from the sound track as the actor's Hungarian accent did not fit the character of the monster already personified by Karloff's 1931 performance. Lon Chaney Jr. plays his part well, a tormented Talbot and an energetic and menacing werewolf, but Lugosi's almost brief appearance does not have the same appeal as Boris Karloff's performance. The supporting cast are all Universal contract players including Dwight Fry and Lionel Atwill, both veterans of earlier Frankenstein/Dracula/Wolf Man movies.

Without any doubt this is the best of the universal wolfman films. The opening has never been bettered in my view. Really creepy. Also unlike the classic wolfman from 1941 the transformation of Lon chaney Jr from man to wolf,the camera is on his face. Excellent. A word must also go to bela lugsio as frankenstein monster,also from the top draw. Quality wise the dvd is good. The movie does what it says on the tin. Unmissable 1940s fun from the top US film company. Don't miss out.
