How couldn´t it be a classic? It's so decidingly funny, so careless about explanations, so relaxed and caring, too, with its comics and monsters, such wit in some dialogues. The blend of humour, fear and sex (lenore Aubert is fantastic)is perfect

Description: Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's "grand unifying monster" film and the first in their "Meet..." series, with the two bungling buddies ... Full Descriptionas 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.

My Top 150 Favorite Comedies (150 movies items)

" One of the earliest "Monster Mash-ups" I saw as a kid on a local TV frightfest show called "Creature Features". I remember my older brother telling me right before the program started that just because this is called "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" the truth was that all three of the Universal Monsters Top Trio of Terror, Franky, Dracky and Wolfy, would be making an appearance throughout this film. To which I couldn't help but inquire "All three of 'em? Cool. Who's on first?""

"October 20 "Get up on your feet. It's only a dummy." "Dummy nothin'. It was smart enough to scare me." This is easily a classic comedy. There were so many great lines and physical comedy throughout the whole movie and Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney Jr. do a great job of reprising their famous roles. It's a near-perfect horror comedy and it makes me want to check out Abbott and Costello's other work."

From The Superb To The Crap - Movies Seen In 2016 (284 movies items)

"Often hailed as Abbott and Costello's best movie of all, this is a side-splitting romp that just may be the best horror spoof of all time. Universal Studio's three most popular classic monsters (Frankenstein's Monster, the Wolf Man, and Count Dracula) are brought together one final time in a fitting swan song tribute. What's really so special about this movie to horror movie fans is that although they're involved in an obvious comical send-up, the three monsters are played straight throughout. I"
