Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 09/01/2000
"...The first and best of the duo's comedy chillers keeps to the spirit of the Universal horror series of the '30s and '40s while delivering its fair share of still-amusing one-liners..."

Product Description:

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's "grand unifying monster" film and the first in their "Meet..." series, with the two bungling buddies as baggage handlers saddled with the ghoulish remains of Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and Frankenstein's monster (Glenn Strange). But once they arrive at their cargo's destination, a wax museum, the monsters revolt, with plans to purloin and transplant Lou's brain. The Monster is growing weak and his master Dracula has devised the perfect plan to restore his virility. The fat man takes the bait, which is in the shape of a woman. Director Charles Barton easily guides this ambitious effort which is chaotically comic throughout, despite an off-camera foot injury that confined Glenn Strange to a cast and prompted Bela Lugosi to fill in for him in one scene. This was last screen appearance of Universal's Frankenstein Monster, which had been introduced by Boris Karloff. The result is an unforgettable and unique combination of humor and horror.

Rating 4.5 A&C Meet Frankenstein Movie Lover: from ELLINGTON, NY US -- February, 21, 2013

I've loved this movie since I was a kid. Bela Lugosi does his usual stellar job and Glenn Strange is very good. Lon Jr is again great as Larry Talbot. This movie works because it is very funny but respects the Hollywood Famous Monster genre. It has humor and horror in a way that works as well as it ever has on the big screen. Wonderful movie!


Rating 5.0 A Comedy Gem Movie Lover: from New York, NY US -- May, 2, 2008

Okay, the single funniest movie ever made has to be Some Like It Hot, but this Abbot & Costello venture probably has more laughs per minute than any film in history. It moves so swiftly and is just gut busting funny. Costello gets so hysterical what with the monsters and all that at one point he calls Chick, his partner, "Abbott"! Did you ever spot that? This film works because the monster plot is taken seriously. It is just a riot.
