The Bride ★½ 1985 (PG-13)

Re-telling of “The Bride of Frankenstein.” Sting's Dr. Frankenstein has much more success in creating his second monster (Beals). She's pretty and intelligent and he may even be falling in love with her. When she begins to gain too much independence, though, the awful truth about her origins comes out. Fans of the two leads will want to see this one, but for a true classic see Elsa Lanchester's bride. 118m/C VHS, DVD . GB Sting, Jennifer Beals, Anthony (Corlan) Higgins, David Rappaport, Geraldine Page, Clancy Brown, Phil Daniels, Veruschka, Quentin Crisp, Cary Elwes; D: Franc Roddam; W: Lloyd Fonvielle; C: Stephen Burum; M: Maurice Jarre.
