Description by OLDIES.com:

The haunted house thriller Spooks Run Wild brings together horror legend Bela Lugosi and the unique comedy of the East Side Kids. City denizens, the East Side Kids, are sent to a summer camp in the country against their will. On their way, they learn about a monster killer that's loose in the area. While passing through a cemetery late at night, Pee Wee is shot. Seeking help, they arrive at the castle of the sinister Nardo (Lugosi) and his dwarf henchman (Angelo Rossitto). The boys are convinced that Nardo is the vampire-at-large. With the help of famed "monster hunter" Von Grosch (Dennis Moore) and young attorney Jeff Dixon (Dave O'Brien), the fearless kids joke and smart aleck their way to trapping the killer.

The East Side Kids provide lots of laughs while Lugosi gives a humorous performance that is also respectful of his Count Dracula persona.

Rating 5.0 spooks run wild Movie Lover: from clamart, Hauts-de-Seine FR -- March, 27, 2004

The best of the East Side Kids films and besides 'Voodoo Man',Bela's best film at Monogram. The kid's meet Bela in a run-down creepy old mansion in the Catskills(then considered part of New England)and the fun begins! The most convincing haunted house sets that I've ever seen in a Hollywood motion picture. Well worth it. Plenty of fun and very atmospheric!


Rating 4.0 The Kids Run into Phantoms at Every Turn Movie Lover: from NJ -- June, 2, 2003

...or so said the TV Guide entry for this way back in the 1980s when these movies were becoming harder and harder to find. Thank God for Alpha Video for bringing back childhood favorites! This is a great East Side Kids adventure, probably the most popular one on TV. Bela Lugosi adds lots of menacing atmosphere.
