  • As a fan of classic horror and comedy films, it's only natural I consider Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein as a movie favorite
  • Perhaps my favorite scene is when Bud and Lou are hired to deliver the “remains” of Dracula and The Creature to MacDougal's House of Horrors, and the monsters keep frightening Lou in a series of elaborate yet suspenseful gags, yet they hide when Bud shows up so he can yell at Lou for his foolishness
  • I found the audio commentary by Gregory W
  • Mank and the documentary on the making of the movie to be very informative and interesting
  • I love learning background notes behind the production, such as how the producer originally wanted to title to be The Brain of Frankenstein, but was advised to include Abbott & Costello's names

      As a fan of classic horror and comedy films, it’s only natural I consider Abbott & Costello meet Frankenstein as a movie favorite. Bud and Lou are in top form, and their antics keep me laughing even during repeat viewings. Yet despite the comedy, I credit the movie with keeping the classic monster trio of Dracula (a commanding Bela Lugosi), the Wolfman (Lon Chaney Jr, sympathetic

      as ever) and the Frankenstein creature (Glenn Strange) as truly frightening characters.

With clean and crisp black and which image and audio, the movie looks and sounds better than it ever did on network TV. The disc is loaded with entertaining bonus features a vampire could really sink his teeth into. I found the audio commentary by Gregory W. Mank and the ...

      documentary on the making of the movie to be very informative and interesting. I love learning background notes behind the production, such as how the producer originally wanted to title to be The Brain of Frankenstein, but was advised to include Abbott & Costello’s names. Watching the DVD presentation actually made me imagine how a theater full of screaming kids back in 1948 might have reacted
      to the chills and gags. The production stills section includes colorful posters and those wonderful colored lobby cards from yesteryear, plus photos that highlight the detailed monster makeup.

      My only complaint is with the case. There are two “snap-flaps” on the opening edge that must be “unsnapped” before opening the case, and they are easy to forget, until one has difficulty opening the case and then remembers why!

Decades later, it is still one of the best horror comedies ever made.
