Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
This scene depicts a key scene near the end of the Bride of Frankenstein film when the monster is ready to attack Pretorius. Dr. Frankenstein and the Bride are reacting to the monster’s anger. “You live! We belong dead!” This scene is a blending of three separate kits. Much of the bench bling was obtained from many sources, some scratch built, and scattered about to enhance the diorama.

Bride of Frankenstein (advertised as The Bride of Frankenstein) is a 1935 American horror film, the first sequel to the influential Frankenstein (1931). Bride of Frankenstein was directed by James Whale and stars Boris Karloff as The Monster, Elsa Lanchester in the dual role of his mate and Mary Shelley, Colin Clive as Henry Frankenstein and Ernest Thesiger as Doctor Septimus Pretorius.
The film follows on immediately from the events of the first film, and is rooted in a subplot of the original novel, Frankenstein (1818). In the film, a chastened Henry Frankenstein abandons his plans to create life, only to be tempted and finally coerced by the Monster, encouraged by Henry’s old mentor Dr. Pretorius, into constructing a mate for him.
