Critic Reviews for Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man

All Critics (12)

Middling Universal horror fodder, at best.

November 2, 2014 | Full Review…

As a kid, I enjoyed this movie much more than I do as an adult. ALL those great Universal monsters in a single film. Even Dracula shows up. But, these days, FMWM seems contrived and dull.

October 26, 2014 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Pretty much the end of Universal's horror line as a home for even the vaguest kind of serious filmmaking.

October 29, 2009 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

"The last great Universal Frankenstein movie, despite the overstuffed title."

September 27, 2005 | Rating: 4/5

It starts off really well, stalls a little toward the middle, goes bonkers for one really odd musical number, and then derails completely at the end.

January 30, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A lot of fun.

Audience Reviews for Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man


Pretty good sequels, not the best, but still worth seeing.

Enjoyable old Universal Studios sequel with Lon Chaney, Jr. reprising his role as Larry Talbot (aka The Wolf Man). Bela Lugosi is less than spectacular as Frankenstein's monster but that may have more to do with Boris Karloff's absence than Lugosi's presence.

Fairly mediocre. still, the atmosphere of universal pictures horror classics and two of its greatest monsters face-to-face is what saves it. good to see Lugosi playing the monster he once refused to incarnate.
