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.

Both B/W and colorized versions look fantastic. The fun extras include an interview with Bela Lugosi and a color Pippi Longstocking (?) TV sketch featuring Tor Johnson as "The World's Strongest Man" in which he acts just like his character "Lobo".

My only complaint is the cover art. It's creepy (in a bad way) and badly designed. It looks like Bela's nose has been replaced by a tiny blonde woman with Cthulu-esque tentacles. It does not evoke the look and feel of an old Ed Wood production. This is Ed Wood, not H.P. Lovecraft. Why not just use the original movie poster illustration or a new retro style design?

But for the price, it's an unbeatable deal. Highly recommended.

This is an Ed wood classic. It includes the regular "actors" night/day scene confusion, rubber monsters, and stock footage interjected regardless of background. Wrestler Toj Johnson, veteran of 31 films, provided his expertise being able to play a mute (unless whipped) a role he would encore. This was the era when cars looked like tanks and bras were fashioned after bullets. I'm not sure the title was truly fitting. And what was that major league mushroom cloud at the end?

They don't make films like this anymore, well unfortunately they do.

It has Bela Lugosi & Tor Johnson in it with a big rubber octopus and Ed Wood directing, how can you not?
The plot is stupid...
The acting is cheesy....
The props are every day household items, like a metal salad bowl......except the rubber octopus, which wood purchased at some prop shop without the mechanics to make it work so the actors had to do all the work.......
I don't know anyone who hasn't seen this movie but...........SPOILER ALERT!...........if you haven't seen it stop reading!
......................................................
Bella's sinister machine is turned on him at the end and he runs into a giant (actually another actor wearing obvious platform shoes) and he kills Lobo, then runs on a rampage on the hillside behind his lab and is crushed by a boulder and forced into the pit with the octopus.
The doctor, now "juiced" up with atomic radiation is struck by a bolt of lightning and explodes into a giant mushroom cloud of atomic radiation, meanwhile our heroes stand nearby unharmed and the police chief says something prophetic (curtain call).......cheesy
You just can't help but like this movie......

I reviewed the VHS which I have had for long time being a Lugosi fan and finally got the DVD cheap but the quality is about the same. The movie
is still GREAT! Lugosi like Karloff and Price and Cushing always gave their best despite some of the material they had to work with and the
cheap production values on some of their films. Lugosi is prefect for this role and Wood wrote a very good script much like or even better than
some of the classic Universal horror films. What he didn't have was a big budget and great actors except for Lugosi and the actor who plays
the homicide captain and the doctor from Lugosi's homeland and Lugosi gives a great performance when they finally meet. The directing is
actually pretty wood and much better than most B movies from this time! and it's not the worst film ever made! as some have commented.
This is a must have for Lugosi and classic horror mystery movies! Bride of the Monster was Lugosi's last great film.

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.

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!
