Now, you might want to jump on these pretty quick like, if you want to check them out. They will only be available on YouTube for a week after premiering.
These are always great to watch and Abbot And Costello Meet Frankenstein is a comedy classic in its own right.
As far as this collection of films, my favorite s still The Invisible Man to this day. The Invisible Man is arguably the only real “monster” in the gallery. The Wolfman, The Mummy, Frankenstein and his Bride are all tortured. They didn’t choose to be what they are, they are hurting at all time, conflicted with their place in life. However, The Invisible Man enjoys his plight. Enjoys his ability to remain unseen, and through that lack of identity his mind is constantly close to being all out lost. His actions are one hundred percent a bi-product of his madness and he revels in it.
