Rating: C -- The first of three films to pair the comedy team with Universal's monsters. Moderately amusing. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- A little bit of going through the motions with this horror spoof but fans will enjoy Full Review

It may prove a less satisfying offering than usual to devotees of the slim and stocky funsters. Abbott and Costello prevail, however, over the chilly doings of such competent scare artists as Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney. Full Review

Well-constructed and satisfyingly low Full Review

It's ridiculous, of course, but the combination of classic monsters, dizzy sets and some of Bud and Lou's funniest bits make it a keeper. Full Review

Even those of us who find Bud and Lou's antics more dated than those of, say, Laurel and Hardy or the Marx Brothers, can still enjoy this one, because the monsters are a hoot. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- While the the film is representative of the absolute worst of Universal horror... it is one of the very best Abbott and Costello vehicles. Full Review

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.
