Mel Brooks in the Horror Universe: YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

29 Jan

Every Friday I will be posting here an excerpt from my book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia.  These excerpts will be entries from the book featuring some of my favorite series, often series you might not expect to find in a book about horror crossovers.  

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (FILM)

Release Date: December 15, 1974 (Setting is 1948)

Series: Young Frankenstein

Horror Crosses: Frankenstein (Universal)

The Story: The son of the infamous mad scientist inherits the family castle, and soon finds himself trying to repeat the experiments.

Notes: The film is much better and funnier than my description. The film is intended to be both a parody and a sequel to the Universal Frankenstein series. This film uses the same exact laboratory equipment props that appeared in the original Universal film. This film was remade a year later as My Friend Frankenstein. It has been referenced either as fictional, as an homage, or spoofed in numerous films and television series.
