Film: The Ghost of Frankenstein
"...and then they will put my brain into your body!" "What?"
"Your father was Frankenstein, but your mother was the lightnink!"

The Ghost of Frankenstein is the fourth part in Universal's Frankenstein films, released in 1942.

Following the Son of Frankenstein, we find out that Ygor (Bela Lugosi) survived being shot and still lives in the Castle Frankenstein. When the angry local villagers blow up the castle to get rid of the so-called "Frankenstein's curse", the Frankenstein's Monster (Lon Chaney Jr.) is accidentally freed from the sulfur pit where it fell in the last film.

Ygor then decides to take the monster to meet Ludwig Frankenstein, previously unmentioned son of the original Dr. Frankenstein, to persuade him to restore the Monster's strength.

The Ghost was the last of the original Frankenstein films and subsequent movies featuring the Monster were Monster Mashes, starting with Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man.
