      Time Out No masterpiece but better than its reputation ... Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Bosley Crowther New York Times The thought that he may yet return for further adventures with his body and Lugosi's sconce fills us with mortal terror. That is the most fearful prospect which the picture manages to convey. Rated: 2/5 Mar 25, 2006 Full Review Paul Chambers Movie Chambers A true waste of time. Rated: D+ Oct 26, 2014 Full Review TV Guide While it doesn't stand up to its predecessors, The Ghost of Frankenstein boasts an enjoyable cast and good production values. Rated: 3/4 Sep 3, 2013 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy It gets the job done with admirable efficiency, no excess of imagination, and all in a compact 67-minute frame, and you really wouldn't want it to be any longer than that. Rated: 6/10 Oct 27, 2009 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Nov 5, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Leigh J I can't believe they made this film, set in Germany, in 1942. They didn't have enough real monsters in Germany in 1942? Not only that, they gas people in this movie. Are you kidding? Watched it tonight because my hubby remembered it from childhood. Once the credits started to roll we both said, "Okay. So we did that." Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review Steve D Not as bad as its reputation but not good. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/08/23 Full Review Logan M The Ghost of Frankenstein is another fun, campy sequel in the dark universe. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/24/23 Full Review Liam D A good mixture of the serious Drama of the first three movies and the campy fun of the rest of the universal monsters but this is the last time of both the monster and the Frankenstein franchise feels human Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/02/22 Full Review Audience Member I was surprised by this sequal and thought the cinema photography, lighting and direction was great. Solid performances from all main cast. Lots of menance, suspense and its a great bit of Universal classic entertainment Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad. Not as good as the three that came before it. But a very good performance by Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney Jr. stepped very nicely into the role of the monster.
