About the Movie

Abbott and Costello, as railroad baggage clerks, receive a strange shipment - the last remains of Dracula and Frankenstein's monster. But this deadly duo is still very much alive. So when the shipment arrives at the House of Horrors, the Monsters are not in their crates but have disappeared to a secret hideaway island. Blamed for the disappearance, Abbott and Costello follow their trail to the island, where not only do they meet up with Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and the Monster (Glenn Strange), but a Mad Scientist (Charles Bradstreet) who wants to switch Costello's brain with that of the Monster. With everyone chasing each other, the Wolf Man (Lon Chaney, Jr.) shows up to scare them all. In the end everything works out: Costello finds romance and the Monsters find their final resting places...or do they?

Fresh: The comedy duo's finest onscreen hour comes in the shape of this wonderful horror spoof which also unites all of Universal's scariest horror heroes under the same cinematic roof. – Film4, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A little bit of going through the motions with this horror spoof but fans will enjoy – Kim Newman, Empire Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

A comedy classic

So far this is my only Abbott and Costello film I have seen. And this movie is awesome! Why? It's got Bela Lugosi returning to his role as Dracula after 10 years, Glenn Strange [who portrayed Frankenstein's Monster in both House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula....both films I would love to see on iTunes some day] returned as the monster, and Lon Chaney Jr. [who has consecutively portrayed the Wolf Man in his first film, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (which I couldn't have requested enough on iTunes), and was the Wolf Man in House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula] returned to his role as the Wolf Man for the last time. The jokes are funny and I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good chuckle and the Universal Monsters.

By the way Apple, can you please upload Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man? That would be so grand because it was my favorite Universal Monster movie. Thanks.

Great Movie!!!!

This has to be one of Abbott & Costello's best movies, it has everything, comedy, horror, and mystery, what's not to love.

It is about time

This is one i have been waiting for for months. Thank you iTunes. Now if at all possible could you continue to add more films from Abbott and Costello. There are tons to choose from, here are some suggestions:
