SON OF FRANKENSTEIN (1939)
Ygor: [laughing] “I died
living they all died dead.”
—Bela Lugosi, SON OF
Most Queer Theory Queens—
Get it right when it comes to
Hollywood film criticism
Too much MILDRED PIERCE—
Makes Jack a Dull Boy though
We simply mustn’t have that!!!
In this exquisite Horror Flick—
Bela Lugosi wins his one & only
Academy Award for Best Actor
They hang poor Ygor dead—
Grave robbing the cemetery for
The evil Herr Doktor Frankenstein!!!
But he survives the ordeal—
With a dislocated bone in his throat
They can’t hang Ygor again!!!
So when Basil Rathbone comes—
To town as SON OF FRANKENSTEIN
Ygor has him resurrect the Monster!!!
Ygor is in love with Boris Karloff—
Who plays a stumbling, bumbling
Inarticulate hunky Piece of Rough Trade
It’s a Love Affair made in Heaven—
Or perhaps made in Hell with
All that German Expressionism!!!
Dark gothic angles & shadows—
The creepy Castle of Frankenstein
Its volcanic Pit Lab down below!!!
Everybody ends up getting exactly—
What they deserve which is lots of
The Monster’s Big Meat!!!
