Editorial Reviews

An all time B-movie classic explodes on the screen in all its cheesy glory! Ed Wood (Plan 9 From Outer Space) directs screen legend Bela Lugosi in a bizarre tale of a mad scientist who, along with his servant Lobo (the gigantic Swedish wrestler Tor Johnson, in a role he was born to play), attempts to create an army of superhuman mutants. Features the famous scene in which Lugosi "wrestles" with a giant rubber octopus. There are thrills (and laughs) aplenty in this enduring and endearing camp masterpiece.

Customer Reviews

The "monster" is just an octopus in a aquarium.
Kimberly A. King
It has Bela Lugosi & Tor Johnson in it with a big rubber octopus and Ed Wood directing, how can you not?
William Ajello
I am happy Legend Films brought this one back to life!

Though mostly recognized for his "work" on the perennial dud Plan 9 From Outer Space, Ed Wood's prolific career creating the best-bad movies in Hollywood extended well beyond that infamous film to an entire library of B-movie classics. Bride of the Monster is one of the director's "high" points, teaming everyone's favorite architect of nightmares up with the Plan 9 dream-team, a then-living Bela Lugosi and the Super Swede, Tor Johnson.

God only knows how Wood kept wrangling a screen legend like Lugosi into doing these horrendously bad movies, but future generations will thank him for the resulting campiness and hilarity. If the thought of poor dialogue, horrendous sets and even worse editing rocks your socks, you're in for a special treat!

If you're going to buy any version of Bride of the Monster, you'd be best served by getting this particular DVD. Legend Films--friend to all B-movies--provides two versions of the film on the same disc: the original black and white version and their new, color-added version. You're welcome to take your pick of the two based on personal preference, but if you have yet to try the colorized version, you might as well indulge. When I compared the two side-by-side, I could not help but enjoy the colorized version more--it adds so much vibrancy and life to the images on screen. Maybe I've been spoiled by decades of realistic imagery in film, but I'm reticent to return to grayscale after having seen Bela, Tor and the octopus monster in their enhanced forms.

Irresistible Monogram film. At the top of the list of movies that qualify for genre So-bad-that's-it's-good. Poverty Row films were filmed in 2-5 days with cardboard sets, wierd music (if any), preposterous plots, bad acting by actors required to wear their own clothes instead of being supplied with costumes, etc..
Bela is known for appearing in about 10 of these amusingly ghastly films. However--Lugosi always gave it his All, no matter how dreadful the script or working conditions. He never dissapoints; he never "walked through" a role. One of the true Immortals...

First of all,let me clarify something:Tor Johnson does not say "time for go to bed" in this movie,but it was the turkey "The Unearthly" starring John Carradine instead.Second,please do not take this movie seriously,even thought it tries to be.At least in Ed Wood's mind,that is.This is a bad movie,but still lots of fun.Third,Ed Wood was NOT the worst director.That award goes to Coleman Francis who did the awful "Red Zone Cuba" and The Beast of Yucca Flats";just to name a couple..The octopus in this movie was taken from a John Wayne movie,which,by the way,they forgot to get the motor that made it move.Plus,Mystery Science Theater 3000 did this movie to hilarious affect,but if you just want to watch the movie by itself,then I say,Go ahead! because it is fun to watch.As is "Plan 9 From Outer Space",too..I don't know if it's the bad editing or the bad acting or the goofs or maybe all three,so just sit back and enjoy!

Here is an Ed Wood movie that you cannot help by laugh at its sad attempts to make us feel terrified and scared! I am happy Legend Films brought this one back to life! I am also a huge fan of the Bela Lugosi movies, so this was just plain film watching fun! Get the popcorn and invite some friends to watch this one!
