Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)

A very funny and entertaining movie. It all starts in London while the full moon is rising. Lawrence Talbot (Lon Cheney, Jr) places a frantic phone call to the baggage department in America where two large crates have arrived. Before he changes into a werewolf he warns Wilbur Grey (Costello) to keep the crates there until he arrives. However, when the owner of the crates, Mr McDougal, comes to take them to his house of horrors Wilbur's boss, Chick Young (Abbott), forces Wilbur to deliver them. It seems that the cases contain the remains of Dracula (Bela Lagosi) and the Frankenstein monster (Glenn Strange). The only problem is that they are still alive. It seems that Dracula wants to give the monster a new brain so he can be controlled better. With the help of Wilbur's girlfriend, Dr Sandra Mornay (Lenore Aubert), Dracula decides that Wilbur's brain would be perfect for the monster and sets off to get it.

This movie was a lot of fun. Costello was hilarious like he always was. Cheney and Legosi were wonderful as the characters that made them famous. This one is worth seeing if you like horror and comedy and especially if you like to laugh when you are scared like I do.
