Ce DVD est une édition anglaise. Il contient le film uniquement en VO, sans aucun sous-titre français. En VF, le film est désormais disponible dans le combo blu-ray/DVD Le Fils de Frankenstein, ainsi qu'en DVD dans le Coffret Frankenstein - Édition Collector 4 DVD.

Le sujet : Vingt cinq ans après les événements de "Bride Of Frankenstein", "Wolf", le fils du Baron Von Frankenstein, revient dans son château natal. Son retour est extrêmement mal perçu par les villageois, qui craignent qu'il succombe à son héritage et réanime le "Monstre". Arrivé dans son domaine, "Wolf" fait la connaissance d'"Ygor", le vieil assistant de son père. Celui-là même qui, jadis, déterrait les morts...

En 1939, "Son Of Frankenstein" est réalisé par Rowland V. Lee. C'est le troisième film de la série des "Frankenstein", et le dernier interprété par Boris Karloff, dans le rôle du monstre. Il y aura encore quatre suites et une parodie :
- "Ghost Of Frankenstein" (1941)
- "Frankenstein Meets The Werewolf" (1942)
- "House Of Frankenstein" (1944)
- "House Of Dracula" (1945)
- "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" (1948).

Bien que plastiquement superbe, "Son Of Frankenstein" est le moins réussi des "trois Karloff".

HASH(0x93550ea0) étoiles sur 5 Boris Karloff's Last Memorable Outing As Frankenstein's Monster 8 mars 2003
Par Simon Davis - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo
"Son of Frankenstein", was the third and last in the series of horror classics to feature Boris Karloff in his most famous part as Frankenstein's monster. After the classic "Frankenstein", and "Bride of Frankenstein", this film was a fitting farewell to his unforgettable characterisation after which the Frankenstein stories were passed over to Universal's "B" movie department and resulted in lesser quality efforts with other actors playing the monster to less effect.

While the film misses the florid direction of the great James Whale who was responsible for the first two installments in the horror trilogy, "Son of Frankenstein", has much to commend it to the viewer. The story is picked up many years after the death of Dr. Frankenstein and the supposed destruction of his murderous creation. We see his son the sophisticated Baron Frankenstein (Basil Rathbone) arrive with his family to finally claim his inheritance and occupy Castle Frankenstein. There he finds he and his family aliented from the fearful townspeople after their experiences with hi sfather and also under extreme suspicion from local Inspector Krogh (wonderfully played by horror veteran Lionel Atwill) who as a child lost an arm in a savage confrontation with the monster and thus holds a grudge against the house of Frankenstein. Coming into contact with the broken necked peasant shepherd Ygor (played by legendary Bela Lugosi in one of his best performances) who lives in the old laboratory, Frankenstein discovers the sleeping body of the monster who was not destroyed after all. Bent on clearing his father's name plus reviving the monster, Frankenstein succeeds too well and not only revives the monster but finds it goes on another killing spree after Ygor uses the monster for his own evil designs in killing off all of the villagers who were responsible for trying to hang him years before. It is true in "Son of Frankenstein", that the monster is very much a background character here as the main focus is placed on Rathbone. This is not necessarily a set back as this tale is a much less up beat one with the monster no longer having alot of the human qualities it possessed in the earlier films that succeeded in drawing sympathy from the audience. Here he has few redeeming qualities and is shown as a cold blooded murderer that rarely creates any sympathy. The one scene where some human element in his character comes through is when after being revived in Frankenstein's laboratory he sees himself in the mirror and recoils in disgust at his pathetic appearance beside that of the debonair Baron frankenstein. The tragic finale of the film which sees the monster flung into a bubbling sulphur pit is one of the great horror movie moments and is a justly memorable conclusion to Karloff's legendary creation.

"Son of Frankenstein", benefits from a much larger budget than the earlier films and indeed some of the creakiness of those efforts is not present here as we see a top rate Universal production for the 1939 year. The look of the film is definately more sinister here, gone are the sunny landscapes of the earlier films. Here the landscape is perpetually storm ridden and darkness prevails in every scene. Even the interiors and architecture have a strange unsettling quality to them and the sets for Castle Frankenstein in particular are positively awesome with their unsettling sloping walls and odd angled staircases lacking any human warmth and creating a feeling of unease and impending doom. They contribute greatly to the darker more fearful atmosphere of this installment in the Frankenstein series.

I personally love all three Karloff outings in this series, "Frankenstein", "Bride of Frankenstein", and "Son of Frankenstein". In this trilogy Boris Karloff created a horror legend that was never equalled and the Frankenstein stories quickly degenerated after these three efforts. Although more of a darker horror outing than the first two films lacking as it does the humour and pathos of Whales creation, "Son of Frankenstein", is a memorable viewing experience and highly recommended to all lovers of classic horror stories.

Format: Cassette vidéo
While 'Son of Frankenstein' may not be as frightening as the original 'Frankenstein' or as good of an all around movie as 'Bride of Frankenstein' before it, this movie excels in two areas which make it one of the best classic scare-fests ever; production and cast. In terms of production value, this is a very slick and well put together film; in my opinion it is the most visually impressive of the vintage Universal films, with elaborate sets that you can tell involved a lot of detail (and a lot of money!). In terms of the cast, this is easily the best cast of any classic horror film ever made. This is the last of three performances by Boris Karloff as the Monster, and although he is obviously putting on some weight and doesn't seem to be quite as enthusiastic about the whole Monster thing by the time this movie was made, there was still never a better Frankenstein Monster anyhwhere. Ever. Period, end of discussion. Basil Rathbone is a slick, likable actor who does a wonderful job of assuming the 'hero' role as the title character, and puts on a good show as paranoia catches up with him throughout the second half of the film. Bela Lugosi gives what some call his best performance as Ygor the Hunchback; I don't know if I can bring myself to say that Dracula was not his best role, but nonetheless he is wonderfully grimy and creepy and seems to be very much having a blast playing this very out-of-character role. And Lionel Atwill, a stalwart in the great Universal Monsterfests of the 1940s, gives an unforgettable performance as the noble, suspicious, and vaguely odd one-armed police inspector Krogh, loyal policeman who, although willing to protect the doctor with his life from bloodthirsty villagers, always has one eyebrow raised in suspicion as to what exactly the goings-on in the castle are. This is a long movie for it's day and it's genre (about 100 minutes) and it may lack some of the dark, graveyard atmosphere that the original two movies had (and in a campy unrefined way the later ones had a little bit of this too). Still, it is a fun movie to watch that has it's moments and has four genre legends in their relative prime. I know I could watch this one again and again.

HASH(0x93551348) étoiles sur 5 Interesting ideas, but lackluster execution 29 octobre 2014
Par Collector 4 Life - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo
Son of Frankenstein is one of those films that have such peaks and valleys, you often wonder if the director and writers honestly understood what they were making. The high points are without question those scenes with Bela Legosi. Without the Igor character, this film is absolutely lost for a villain, a plot, or even a moment of atmosphere. Bela's Igor nicely fills in the story gaps by providing a character that offers a mysticism to the events between Bride and this story. He is the bridge of reason which allows us to at least accept, in part, the circumstances that permit the Frankenstein monster to be sustained and well kept after all these years. But the story set up is substantially lazy in it's execution of these events. Even worse are the placement of key iconic locations in the story.

The once remote ruins of the watch tower have now been conveniently moved into a oddly scenic view from the Mansion's estate. Kind of like a wrecked gazebo with a Jacuzzi hot pit for environment. Since so much time has passed and Victor Frankenstein has just recently died, it really leaves one confused about what he did since he lived to old age. Did Victor give up his search for eternal life and move on or just become a recluse and sit in front of his picture window and stare at the remains, never knowing his creation still lived inside along with a new tenant? And how did his remains come to sit in a tunnel that was presented as something of a secret to the ruins? Did the support staff bury him there? And who within the village would know of this location and retain the balls to come in and vandalize his crypt given the nature of mysterious murders occurring during that time and the monster who laid nearby? So it's a very odd set up to establish this story.

For me though the weakest link is the son himself played by Basil Rathbone. This is the point where I look to the director and just collectively throw up my arms and cry, "What?!" Basil's performance is borderline camp. His over-the-top reactions to any question asked by the local inspector would have set off a four alarm fire. He shows more guilt than your standard border collie and doesn't seem to possess any skills that would suggest he would have the knowledge to restore the monster let alone understand what he's looking at. His emotional range bounces from irrational happiness to utter despair, with a massive dose of paranoia thrown in throughout. I can never accept for one minute this is a real character, let alone the son of Victor Frankenstein. Perhaps Victor's death was a suicide?

The sets while imaginative in places sometimes fall well short of being believable. The supposed mansion/castle never feels like a real structure. Every room looks like a movie stage. The stairs look like they were constructed just that morning for the scene and there's a sterile feel and echo to the surroundings that betrays any suggestion the characters reside in a comfortable old home. The watch tower retains too much of it's structure given we saw it crumble to it's foundation at the end of Bride, but I accept that as artistic license to move the story along. Perhaps Victor was rebuilding it for nostalgia?

So this really leaves us with the two best parts of the film - Karloff and Legosi. While it's easy to see why Karloff ran from any future projects after this one, he certainly gives it his all and tries to bring depth to a character written more as a prop than a conflicted creature filled with questions. His updated grizzly vest gives him a nice look that enhances his presence measurably. His makeup is once again done well, but also starts what I painfully call the monster mole on his right lower cheek. I'll never quite understand the purpose of that since in previous installments they were just shading that area to enhance the sunken features in his face. Now the makeup is darker and is decidedly a character of it's own. It's confusing and I'll never understand what the rationale was here or why other makeup artists followed. I wonder if that's copyrighted?

This leaves us with Legosi and his Igor character. This is truly a film where Bela not only steals the show, he saves it. He completely disappears into the role and gives the whole film it's mood and creepiness. If ever there were an argument demonstrating Bela's versatility as an actor, this is it. He does an exceptional job in holding scenes together and commands those moments even when sharing it with Karloff. It's a shame Hollywood did not recognize this and put him in better projects.

So between Bela's performance, Karloff's effort to resuscitate an empty script, and a few iconic moments like the monster being kicked into the molten rock pit, the movie manages to retain enough dignity to stand up on it's own as a unique, but horribly flawed installment. It's also a good example of how quickly you can find the bottom for a film if a good script and direction is not part of the an excellent cast.

After watching and loving the original Frankenstein(1931) and Bride of Frankenstein(1935), I had high expectations for Son of Frankenstein. Those expectations were not only met but exceeded. Rathbone was perfect as the Baron Frankenstein, and Legosi was a nice addition as Ygor. This film turned out quite unexpectedly to be my favorite of the 3 Universal Studios Frankenstein movies.

This is one of the better movies in the Universal "Frankenstein" franchise, the other two being "Frankenstein" and "Bride of Frankenstein." After that they began to slide into a set mold in which all Universal's monsters were poured into the mix and relatively little happened in the way of plot. There's a play on words in the title as there is in "Ghost of Frankenstein" with the "son" being both Wolf Frankenstein, eldeset son of Henry as well as the monster. This film also introduced Igor, which in my opinion was a better role and a much better acted one for Bela Lugosi. Oddly, he's rarely remembered for it with people substituting Dwight Frye, who was in the original movie.

This is the movie which was parodied so beautifully by Gene Wilder in "Young Frankenstein." One might almost call it a pastiche, an homage. Those having seen that film and now this one will recognize all the scenes duplicated so lovingly. It also features the performance of young Donny Donigan (sp) which has been deplored by many credits, and even the director himself, I believe, and while the child's accent is laughable since it is so different from his parents (they sound English, he sounds as if he's from the Deep South), it's a good performance for someone so young (although I understand when Donny grew up and became a law-enforcement officer, he never told anyone of his previous life as a child star).

Better acting than most, with actors who had long and memorable careers, with a fairly literate script, although some of the dialogue is laughable in its redundancy.
