Bride of Frankenstein

I am writing a new book: BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

At my recent book launch, I had the pleasure of making an announcement: I’m writing a new book – another film monograph – on an extraordinary cinematic milestone, James Whale’s BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN from 1935.

The book will be written for Neil Snowdon’s Electric Dreamhouse Midnight Movie Monographs series and it will join other excellent titles such as Martin by Jez Winship, Spirits of the Dead (Histoires Extraordinaire) by Tim Lucas and my other favourite David Cronenberg film, The Brood by Stephen R. Bissette.

While research is underway, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN is slated for release in 2020/21, which might sound like an eternity away but will be here before you can say, ‘She’s alive! She’s alive!’ (and don’t forget my book on THE FLY is now available).

Here’s a teaser of what to expect with BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN…

Gods & Monsters: Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Thank you to Diabolique Magazine and Lee Gambin for breathing new life into this piece and selecting it to kick off the ‘Gods & Monsters’ column.

I particularly appreciate the glorious photograph selection, including the one featured above of my ‘spirit animal’, Elsa Lanchester.
