Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man is the sequel to 1941's The Wolf Man. The Wolf Man was a popular character, but according to Universal, not popular enough to warrant a sequel without the aid of a guest monster. In the film, Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney, Jr.) is brought back to life, so he goes in search of a Dr. Frankenstein who he hears can cure his problem. Instead, he finds his monster (Bela Lugosi). It's kind of funny to see a 60-year-old Lugosi playing the monster, especially since he isn't tall enough. All unintentional humor aside, this is a fun movie. It's a solid team-up with a satisfying fight scene at the end.
