Listen to a bit of Franz Waxman's spooky score below:

"Waxman’s superb seminal score for The Bride of Frankenstein is as iconic as the movie itself... What sets his effort here apart was his success, his brilliance in speaking to the complex elements of the film’s narrative; the horror, the grotesque, the sinister and the comedic. That he was able to succeed on all counts reveals genius."
