Synopsis Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's grand unifying monster film and the first in their Meet... series, with the two bungling buddies as baggage handlers saddled with the ghoulish remains of Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and Frankenstein's monster (Glenn Strange). But once they arrive at their cargo's destination, a wax museum, the monsters revolt, with plans to purloin and transplant Lou's brain. The Monster is growing weak and his master Dracula has devised the perfect plan to restore his virility. The fat man takes the bait, which is in the shape of a woman. Director Charles Barton easily guides this ambitious effort which is chaotically comic throughout, despite an off-camera foot injury that confined Glenn Strange to a cast and prompted Bela Lugosi to fill in for him in one scene. This was last screen appearance of Universal's Frankenstein Monster, which had been introduced by Boris Karloff. The result is an unforgettable and unique combination of humor and horror.What we need is young blood... and brains... -- DRACULA (Bela Lugosi) to WILBUR (Lou Costello) You don't understand. Every night when the moon is full, I turn into a wolf. You and fifty million other guys! -- -- exchange between WOLFMAN (Lon Chaney Jr.) and WILBUR (Lou Costello)...The first and best of the duo's comedy chillers keeps to the spirit of the Universal horror series of the '30s and '40s while delivering its fair share of still-amusing one-liners...
