Hard to call this a horror film but with Frankenstein in the title some do.  This Mel Brooks classic film brings a twist as only Mel Brooks can to the classic fairytale of Frankenstein.  This film stars some of Mel’s repeat cast, Gene Wilder and Madeline Kahn, as well as the late Peter Boyle in the role of Frankenstein’s monster.

Young Dr. Frankenstein is called to Transylvania after the death of his grandfather to pick up the pieces he left behind, and before long finds himself picking up his grandfather’s work in creating a monster, that can sing and dance!

This film in my humble opining is one of the best Mel Brooks ever did, right up at the top of the charts with Blazing Saddles, History of the World and Spaceballs.  To have this film restored and presented in Blu-Ray is a must have for any fan of Mel’s work.  This new format captures all the laughs and screams in the best that technology can offer.

Also on this version of the film are a ton of Bonus Features.  The collection of behind the scenes and making of featurrettes are fantastic to watch as this classic film is created.  The photo galleries and outtakes from the film take us back to 1974 as the film is created to see not only how much fun the movie is but how much fun was had in making the film.

This is a must have Blu-Ray for all collectors.
