Late Reviewer’s Frankenstein Sequel Roundup

As with the Bruce Campbell box set I’ve watched so you don’t have to (that’s unfair, one of those films is objectively brilliant), I thought it would be a bit of fun to have all the Frankenstein franchise Late Reviews in one place with easy links to the individual films.

I’ve also tried to sum each of them up in a sentence too, but included links to each full review which will give you much more info on the films.

Putting The Multiplex In A Suplex: Good, Bad & Ridiculous Wrestlers In Movies

An Unkindness Of Ravens – Never Say Nevermore Again

A Special Feature by Dan Bean.

Whether you know much about Edgar Allan Poe’s work or not, there’s a decent chance you’re familiar with his poem The Raven – it was adapted in one of The Simpsons’ earliest Treehouse Of Horror episodes, and I reckon if anyone asked you to finish the line “Quoth the raven…”, you’d respond “Nevermore”… right?
