Extremely fun Pete Smith short has him serving as narrator as a man walks into a creepy old house, which is full of monstrous things including a zombie, an evil witch with a pet spider and Frankenstein's monster. I've now seen this film in both 2-D and 3-D and I must admit that it doesn't matter which one you view. The 3-D effects here don't work too well with the exception of two scenes. One is when there's a car wreck and a branch comes towards the camera. The other is the scene where the witch has a stick with a spider on it and moves the thing towards the camera. Outside of these two scenes the 3-D effects really aren't too special even though the entire film goes for them. The ending has Frankenstein's monster throwing stuff down at the camera but none of these shots worked too well. As for the film, I think it's great fun no matter which version you watch. I'm sure horror buffs will get a bigger kick out of it due to the supernatural elements and Frankenstein buffs will get a kick out of the monster here, which seems to be spoofing Karloff's turn in Son of Frankenstein. The monster also gets the same look and sweater.
