Bride of the Monster


AKA The Atomic Monster, The Monster of the Marshes, Bride of the Atom. Ed Wood had the astronomical (for him) sum of $70,000 to create this gobbler. The sets are much better than in any of his other films, but the script and the acting are just as stunningly awful. This is basically Bela Lugosi’s last film, though he had a few seconds in Plan Nine From Outer Space.” Then he died, and was replaced by a man who held his cape in front of his face. Wood figured no one would notice, I guess.
