Plot
Ambiance
This movie focuses more on the wolf than the revenant. An idea is thrown suggesting that the werewolf's curse can be lifted by using Frankenstein's technology. Meanwhile, citizens are throwing blames at Frankenstein for the murders his creature committed. This culminates in both creatures, wolf and revenant, meeting each other. The decent script takes care of making this improbability seamless.
What a title! Surprisingly, the movie's not any dumber than the previous installments of both franchises. The two worlds, as it turns out, are perfectly interchangeable. They blend well together in style and quality. We get fun, minimalistic transformation scenes, a surreal castle and fantastic sets of fake forests. Both characters can therefore reside and shine in their respective element.
Lon Chaney Jr. played both the last creature and the last Wolf Man on screen. He can only pick one character and decides to return as the latter. This film is a mess when it comes to continuity, but the story keeps us entertained regardless. Will the two monsters fight each other or cooperate to overcome a common enemy? There's only one way to know! Watch out for that third act. It's a delight!
