Bride of the Monster is a 1955 American science fiction horror film directed, written, and produced by Edward D. Wood, Jr., and starring Bela Lugosi, along with Tor Johnson, Tony McCoy, and Loretta King.
The film is considered to have Wood’s biggest budget ($70,000). Production commenced in 1953 but, due to further financial problems, wasn’t completed until 1955.
A sequel, entitled Night of the Ghouls, was finished in 1959, but due to last-minute financial problems, was not released until 1987.
