The Bride Countdown


Of all the sites celebrating Halloween all this month, one of the most original and beautifully executed is artist Thomas Boatwright’s sketch-a-day homage to Bride of Frankenstein on his Sequential Matinee blog.

Boatwright, a cartoonist and comic book creator, is stepping through the classic film with quick digital drawings, one key scene after another, that capture the characters and the sweep of the film, all done in pitch perfect black, white and grays.

I can’t wait for The Bride to show up!

Thanks for the kind words! Big fan of this blog and happy to be featured on it. This movie is very special to me and I'm enjoying slowly watching it over the course of the month.
