(1948) Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

Straight up, this is a totally fun movie and the title itself really pigeon holes it because it’s basically all the Universal monsters.

This is the first Abbott and Costello film I’ve ever seen and I actually found it to be quite funny. It’s a simple story but I think that works really well with the style of humor.

The only parts I waver on from time to time is The Monster played by Glenn Strange (he’s just okay) and the visual effects which are interesting. The visual effects kind of employ some very dated animation transitions which are definitely shitty but also fucking amazing.

All in all, enjoyed this way more than I expected to. It aims sort of high and hits sort of high.

6.5/10
