It’s not only Frankenstein’s monster (Glenn Strange) –Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and the Wolf Man (Lon Chaney Jr.) are invited to the party, too! By 1948 the character-driven horror films at Universal had petered out – along with the careers of Abbott and Costello. The genius idea to combine the comedy duo (playing for laughs) and the monsters (playing it straight) was a hit. Although it was a swan song for the monsters it was the first in a series of four comedic horror films for Abbott & Costello. Come celebrate Halloween with AFS while we laugh at the monsters and Abbott & Costello’s antics – no nightmares here!
