Bride of the Gorilla – 1951 – United States

Bride of the Gorilla was written/directed by Curt Siodmak, the prolific penman of many classic flicks: The Invisible Man Returns (1940), The Ape (1940), The Wolf Man (1941), Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943), I Walked with a Zombie (1943), Son of Dracula (1943), House of Frankenstein (1944), The Magnetic Monster (1953), Creature with the Atom Brain (1955), Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956), The Devil’s Messenger (1961). Killer ape flicks are usually awful, but Bride of the Gorilla astounds with literate writing and competent acting (including Lon Chaney Jr.). A good gorilla flick? Hell freezes over.
