Tearjerker: Son of Frankenstein
The way the Monster breaks down and howls in utter grief upon finding the dead body of Ygor will break your heart. And the scene then takes a hard turn right into Nightmare Fuel when, upon finding Wolf's son's coloring book, the Monster tears it between his fingers with a look of slowly dawning maniacal glee on his face.
