Masters Of Horror! (James Whale)

Another quickie.
His career was significantly shorter than Tod Browning's though.

Frankenstein (1931)

See here, and here.

The Old Dark House (1932)

One with Karloff I left out.

A couple seeks shelter from a storm at a creepy mansion, the inhabitants are fucked up, bad mojo goes down.
The usual formula.
It probably wasn't back then.

Karloff is the wacky butler.

The Invisible Man (1933)

See here.

Scientist makes invisibility potion, scientist takes invisibility potion, potion has insanity side-effect.
You guessed it, hi-jinks ensue.

Another great one that holds up.
Has a sprinkle of dark humor to it.
Whale was a quirky fella.

Followed by a sequel with Vincent Price.

The Bride Of Frankenstein (1935)

See here.

Gods And Monsters (1998)

See here, and here.

The biopic.
Magneto is a pretty good likeness.

And, bam, done, that's James Whale.

Up next, Terence Fisher.
