Free Halloween Movie @DPL: The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

October 21, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

FREE classic Hollywood horror films from the 1930s and 40s presented each Tuesday in October at Denver Public Library Central branch B2 Level Conference Center with the fun-loving folks of Fresh City Life!

Starring Boris Karloff, Colin Clave, and Elsa Lanchester. Directed by James Whale.
“James Whale’s The Bride of Frankenstein (1935), the best of the Frankenstein movies–a sly, subversive work that smuggled shocking material past the censors by disguising it in the trappings of horror. Some movies age; others ripen. Seen today, Whale’s masterpiece is more surprising than when it was made because today’s audiences are more alert to its buried hints of homosexuality, necrophilia and sacrilege. But you don’t have to deconstruct it to enjoy it; it’s satirical, exciting, funny, and an influential masterpiece of art direction.” ~ Roger Ebert, rogerebert.com. 75 minutes. Unrated.
