Neil Gaiman on Bride of Frankenstein

Does Neil Gaiman really need an introduction? Gaiman, you should know, is a prolific writer of the legendary Sandman comics, best-selling short-story collections and novels such as American Gods and Anansi Boys, and children’s/young adult, or “all-ages” books such as Coraline and The Graveyard Book.

Here, Gaiman reflects on James Whale’s BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) and its enduring oddbeat charm. The short interview was done for the spectacular, ongoing, UK-wide Gothic series of films and events celebrating “the Dark Heart of Film”, organized by the British Film Institute.
