We for Vendetta

This monster and freak have grown close
Their fondness unspeakably gross
The giant obeys
And compliantly slays
In response, victims shriek "adios."

In Son of Frankenstein (1939), Karloff's marauding monster is a murderous pawn of Lugosi's devious Ygor, and a long way from the complex creation in the James Whale Frankensteins. It's no wonder this was the last time that Karloff' played the character.
