The mummy (1932): "In 1921 a field expedition in Egypt discovers the mummy of ancient Egyptian prince Im-Ho-Tep, who was condemned and buried alive for sacrilege. Also found in the tomb is the Scroll of Thoth, which can bring the dead back to life. One night a young member of the expedition reads the Scroll out loud, and then goes insane, realizing that he has brought Im-Ho-Tep back to life. Ten years later, disguised as a modern Egyptian, the mummy attempts to reunite with his lost love, an ancient princess who has been reincarnated into a beautiful young woman."--IMDB website
Bride of Frankenstein by James Whale( Visual )

17 editions published between 1935 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the device of a prologue in which Mary Shelley takes up her story, the monster and Frankenstein were resurrected at Universal's behest. Although the threads of continuity in the plot are explicit, in tone this is not really a sequel but a macabre comedy, an excursion into the fantastic which hovers between expressionism and surrealism. Karloff's monster is the only sympathetic character. The mad scientist, Dr. Pretorius, seems to take over the evil presumptions of Frankenstein. As originally conceived, the heart of Frankenstein's bride, Elizabeth, was to have been implanted in the she-monster. This makes more sense of the she-monster's behaviour

Frankenstein is the greatest horror film of all time. Dr. Frankenstein dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster in his laboratory; but his dreams of perfection are thwarted when the monster becomes an uncontrollable beast. Director James Whale's adaptation of Mary Shelley's novel mixes gothic decay and chilling lyricism; and Boris Karloff (as the monster) in the role he would be identified with for the rest of his life, offers a compassionate portrayal of the monster's groping for identity
