W(H)EREWOLF . . .

Young FrankensteinRemember when parodies of horror films were simple and funny, without being obscene or tragic? Remember when just a face or a performance made something seriously funny? When clever lines and dialogues made a difference and there was no need for putting 300 films together to get material for just one dignified parody?

So, this is a tribute to my all time favorite horror film parody “Young Frankenstein”...

Maybe it was the excellent performance by Gene Wilder or the colossal talent of Marty Feldman or even the pure genius of Mel Brooks which makes this film one of the best. Whatever it was, it's one of the few this writer can watch repeatedly, time and time again laughing as hard as the first one and waiting with the same -if not greater- anticipation for the favorite line...

Word games, witty comebacks, smart tricks and just the face of Marty Feldman make this unique.

Black and white to add the the thrill of the story, the classic tale of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley meets the mind of Mel Brooks and as a result a classic film is created.

It's not that I don't enjoy what the film industry has to offer these days, it's just that when I 'm home wanting to relax and have a good laugh, this is one of the first movies that come to mind...

To make a long story short, if you already have this DVD in your collection you know exactly what I'm talking about. If you don't, I seriously urge you to run to your nearest shop and buy a copy!

P.S: There wolf, there castle...
