* CrazyAwesome: Dr. Pretorius (Ernest Thessiger) is a CampGay MadScientist who grows [[PeopleJars tiny people in jars]], does not so much tinker in God's domain as wage open war against him, dreams of creating a race of monsters and interrupts his grave robbing to hold cozy picknics with Frankenstein's monster in the crypt. To put it another way, this is a MadScientist who scares ''Dr. Frankenstein''.

** The elderly couple at the beginning, who previously lost their daughter to the monster and end up losing their lives here because of the man's thirst for closure. Although he ends up [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat being proven right]] when he tries to make sure that the monster is really dead, he ends up going by himself and puts himself in a precarious position for the monster to drown him like he did with his daughter. And then his wife ends up helping the monster get out of the sewer (thinking it's her husband) only to be flung down by the monster when she recognizes him.

* MoralEventHorizon: The Monster reaches this early in the film when he first strangles an elderly couple in their home for [[ForTheEvulz absolutely no reason]] and then brutally murders a young girl. [[WhatMeasureIsAMook We don't actually get to KNOW these people, so we can forgive the Monster for these fiendish acts]].

* IAmNotShazam: Lord Byron himself actually calls the monster Frankenstein in the prologue, and Pretorius is quick to dub the new female monster "[[TitleDrop the bride of Frankenstein]]". Although perhaps he was using the word "of" in the same manner as in [[Creator/MarvelComics "Monster of Frankenstein"]] (This may also be an artifact left over from the original plan to have Elizabeth's heart implanted into the Bride, which would have made the name literal.)

* UncannyValley: The Bride. She looks normal, except for her hair and a few scars, but the way Elsa Lanchester portrays her: the wide-eyed yet expressionless face, the stiff arms, the sharp, jerky motions of her head, the ''hiss'' ... she actually makes the Bride less human than Karloff's Monster.
