A death fight...between two beasts!

Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man is a Universal Horror movie from 1943. It is a sequel for both The Wolf Man (1941) and The Ghost of Frankenstein and it is Universal's first Monster Mash film.

Four years after his death in The Wolf Man, Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) is awakened from his slumber when two vagrants attempt to rob his grave. After instantly transforming into a Wolf Man and killing one of the robbers, he finds himself in Cardiff (the capital of Wales).

After his warnings of his lycanthropy is ignored, he escapes and starts searching for the Gypsy-woman Maleva (Maria Ouspenskaya), in hopes that she'll know how to kill him permanently. The two set out to Vasaria, where, according to Maleva, a certain Dr. Frankenstein lives.

After reaching the place and finding out that Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein is dead and his place is in ruins (as seen in the end of The Ghost of Frankenstein), they attempt to continue, when Larry transforms yet again and in the next morning wakes up in the basement of the ruins. There he finds the Frankenstein's Monster (Bela Lugosi) trapped in a block of ice.

Enter Dr. Mannering (Patric Knowles) from Cardiff and the original Dr. Frankenstein's granddaughter, Elsa (Ilona Massey), and the clash between the monsters is about to begin...

Next up, Dracula joins the party in House of Frankenstein.
