As part of a nostalgia kick that went on in the horror genre during the 1980’s, movies from the 1950’s or older were being remade or reworked – John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982) being one of the most notable and prominent of this bunch – into new movies, evoking a sense of nostalgia for the simpler times of moviegoing. Part of this trend was Franc Roddam’s take on the classic Bride of Frankenstein, simply titled The Bride; however, it’s decision to take a new approach to the story wasn’t well received by critics and audiences at the time. Shout Factory, through their Scream Factory line, resurrects this unique take on Frankenstein with a very good Blu-ray release.
