Synopsis

Long before there were the Scary Movie movies, horror films were given the spoof treatment by the top comedy pairing of the 1940s, Abbott and Costello. A large part of the fun is here is that several of the original stars (Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Lon Chaney Jr as the Wolf Man) turn up to play their classic characters. The plot has Dracula sneaking into the US, and accidentally being foiled by the hapless Abbott and Costello - but that's really just there to set up the winning combination of slapstick and spooky voices.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
