Rotten: Ed Wood sucked. He didn't suck so bad he was good, he just sucked.

Rotten: More fun than its ridiculous story and brutal acting and incompetently designed sets would indicate.

There are bad movies and then there are great bad movies. Ed Wood was the king of making great bad movies. Many people say that the secret ingredient in Ed Wood's films was the love and devotion that he put into them. That may be true but what really makes a bad movie great is when you can watch it and be completely excited to watch it scene for scene and line for line. Bride of the Monster is awesomely bad and a real delight of bad cinema its every bit as good/bad as Plan Nine From Outer Space just not as famous. Bela Legosi's octopus fight sequence and his atomic supermen speak highlight this quintessential film for bad movie fans.

The best bit about this film are the superb 'death' sequences and fabulous acting haha the plastic octopus cut with real footage is classic and Lugosi is quite memorable with his speeches of evil hehe The plot is rather basic and the effects are even more pathetic than 'Plan 9' but its still really enjoyable to watch, Bela is the main attraction here for sure, its all based around him, his dialog is actually good in places as he over acts with great enthusiasm and heart, the look of his lab and old creaky house isn't too bad either...it just adds to the old black n white horror feel :) This is probably second best behind 'Plan 9' with its kooky feel and mad scientist character, the film isn't as badly edited as 'Plan 9' but there's still some genius directing going on, love the old house in the stormy pouring rain.
