Fresh: The Bride of Frankenstein has an in-your- face audacity that hasn't dimmed all that much after 63 years.
- Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Fresh: Whale added an element of playful sexuality to this version, casting the proceedings in a bizarre visual framework that makes this film a good deal more surreal than the original.
- Don Druker, Chicago Reader, Monday, June 4, 2007
Fresh: Another astonishing chapter in the career of the Monster.
- Frank S. Nugent, New York Times, Tuesday, August 8, 2006
While it is nowhere close to the level of perfection that the first, it is a great addition the series. I could have done without some of the cheesy elements, tiny people, it is still enjoyable and intelligent. My big complaint was the retconning of events and characters/actors from the first. It was both confusing and highly unnecessary. Colin Clive and Boris Karloff are the heart and soul of the film, they make it a classic.

Pure classic horror. The story is no different from the first movie but it still pretty good.
