The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day belongs dead!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

I’m exhausted, so forgive me if this entry is lackluster, but I hope the fun pic makes up for it. Today we are featuring one of the few horror sequels that stand should to shoulder (if not a tad taller) than the classic original: James Whale’s The Bride of Frankenstein.

The pic features monsters and scientists alike having a relaxing moment with painting and a spotta tea! I particularly love how demure Elsa Lanchester looks in her Bride reveal-clothing.

Hope you guys enjoy the pic! Wish I had a bigger version for ya’ as this would make a helluva wallpaper, but enjoy it nonetheless!



Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic is a sucker for a good explosion!

    I don't think they're looking at paintings

    by JumpinJehosaphat

    I'm thinking photograph prints.

    For the clueless...'scuse me, uninitiated...

    by darthderp

    From left to right: Ernest Theisiger (Dr. Pretorius), Colin Clive (Dr. Frankenstein), Boris Karloff (duh), Elsa Lanchester (double-duh). Great pic; just another day at the office!

    Look at the craftsmanship of that whicker ottoman!


    Don't make them like that anymore!

    The Godfather II of it's day.

    by v3d

    Back when sequels didn't always suck.

  • April 26, 2011, 8:36 a.m. CST

    you do mean Lanchester, right?

    by John McIlroy

    Not sure who Elsa Lancaster is

  • April 26, 2011, 8:57 a.m. CST

    Love how the movie poster has only Karloff's last name

    by darthderp

    He was a ? in the first movie, but by the time this one rolled around, EVERYONE knew who he was. Karloff, Lugosi, Chaney Jr....the BIG THREE of Universal's Golden Age!

  • April 26, 2011, 9:02 a.m. CST

    Karloff? Karloff?! FUCK YOU!!!

    Tea time! Even monsters and scientists make time for tea.

    You uncivilized bastard colonists.

    nasty in the pasty

    by darthderp

    First of all, Karloff's dead, so he's not smelling anything. Your statement is not only crude, it's silly. Second of all, the man is a full-blown ICON. Care to post your resume to try and match him??

    It's a quote from Burton's "Ed Wood" you ninny...great film, btw.

  • That I'm surprised he got up long enough to make the movies.

  • April 26, 2011, 9:16 a.m. CST

    guntermonkey...I'VE BEEN SMACKED IN MY MOVIENUTS!!

    by darthderp

    ACK!! I stand corrected...pardon my ignorance everyone as I slip on this dunce cap....

    cookylamoo re: Karloff lounging

    by darthderp

    The makeup and padding might have had something to do with it; the boots alone weighed 13 pounds. Add to that the back brace that he had to wear, and as a result his back was never the same after the first film.

  • April 26, 2011, 9:40 a.m. CST

    Oh, that's awesome.

    by ChezKing

    This is a behind the scenes photo. Love it!

    IF that was Harry

    He'd be drinking a mountian dew and 14" hoggie, instead of sipping on a cup of tea!

    A rare better-than-the-original sequel

    by rev_skarekroe

    I liked Dr. Pretorius and his creepy homunculi.

  • April 26, 2011, 11:07 a.m. CST

    off subject,

    by klytusnotdead

    having just recently watched SkyLine, I loved it and the bitched about ending. Why so much hate towards it back then? fanboys r like lil bitches sometimes.end if lne.

    Karloff = best face for putting makeup on in film history.

    by UltraTron

    Your challenge begins: name another actor who took makeup to the face better than that mofo

  • April 26, 2011, 11:55 a.m. CST

    Even Chaney pales

  • April 26, 2011, 12:09 p.m. CST

    Tammy Faye Baker?


  • April 26, 2011, 12:12 p.m. CST



    your name brings up an excellent idea: if celebrities auctioned off their afterbirths for charity would people buy them?

  • April 26, 2011, 12:14 p.m. CST

    Ultratron...Ever heard of Lon Chaney Sr.?

    by darthderp

    Phantom of the Opera ring a bell?

  • April 26, 2011, 12:15 p.m. CST

    Oops..yes you have heard of bad

    by darthderp

    went to post before refreshing my browser to catch your other posting. Sorry. But STILL!

  • April 26, 2011, 12:18 p.m. CST


    by GunterMonkey

    I was just ribbing you...I probably know too many lines from Ed Wood, haha...but, what cracked me up the most was addressing someone named "nasty in the pasty" with a serious reply, definitely should check out Ed Wood if you haven't already...I think it is one of Burton's best.

  • April 26, 2011, 12:26 p.m. CST

    guntermonkey - Thanks, but a fuckup is a fuckup

    by darthderp

    Normally I leave stuff like that - what sounded like a troll post - alone, but for some reason I felt like replying -- and put my foot in it. HARRY, WE NEED A DELETE BUTTON HERE!!

    For Bela, a alternate history..

    by Dark Doom

    Bela Lugosi: Karloff? Sidekick? FUCK YOU! Karloff did not deserve to smell my shit! That limey cocksucker can rot in Hell for all I care! Edward D. Wood, Jr.: What happened? Bela Lugosi: How dare that asshole bring up Karloff? You think it takes talent to do Frankenstein? It's all makeup and grunting. [Mocks Frankenstein] Edward D. Wood, Jr.: Bela, I agree with you 100%. Now, "Dracula," that's a role that requires talent. Bela Lugosi: Of course. Dracula requires presence. It's all in the eyes, and the voice, and the hands... Edward D. Wood, Jr.: [interrupting] That's right. That's right. You seem a little agitated. You wanna to go outside and get some air? Bela Lugosi: Bullshit! I'm ready now! Roll the camera!
