WELCOME TO THE FRANKCENTENNIAL!
I know, it's hard to believe, but yes, I've actually put up two posts on the same day. But with good reason - I literally just learned that today marks the 100th anniversary of the release of the first ever "Frankenstein" movie from Thomas Edison Studios!
That of course thrills us here at "Scared Silly," as the Frankenstein monster stars in the ultimate horror-comedy, "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein."
To mark this momentous occasion, I hereby invite you to re-read (or read for the first time as the case may be) my review of "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" by clicking here.
You can also read Cinematical's article on the anniversary of the first "Frankenstein" film by clicking here.
Above all I invite you to check out Scared Silly friend Pierre Fournier's Frankensteinia blog. Pierre is posting numerous entries to celebrate this milestone and you can read his informative and entertaining posts by clicking here.
Last but not least, here's the trailer to "Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein" but this time I'm sharing the "Trailers from Hell" version with a commentary track from movie director John Landis (no stranger to horror-comedy himself with "An American Werewolf in London" and "Innocent Blood")... enjoy!
