My Favorite Animagic Feature
6 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

MAD MONSTER PARTY? is a fantastic addition to our cultural landscape. The Jack Davis designed puppets, the Harvey Kurtzman style satire, the great voices (including the irreplaceable Boris Karloff) and the surf guitar/spy music/monster mash soundtrack all combine to make a unique viewing experience, enjoyable for all ages. Most importantly, this film presents the greatest assortment of classic monsters in one epic story - Dracula, The Werewolf, Frankenstein's Monster, The Creature, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Mummy, King Kong, The Invisible Man, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and the Peter Lorre inspired Igor!

The Worldwide Organization of Monsters congregate on Monster Island to discuss the retirement of Baron Von Frankenstein (voice of Borris Karloff). The Baron announces that his nerdy nephew, Felix, is to be the sole inheritor of all his secrets, including the power to destroy all matter. This pisses off Frankenstein's inexplicably gorgeous assistant, Franchesca - who has touches of Honor Blackman, Bridget Bardot and Ann-Margret. Several of the monsters also feel that they should each be the sole heir to Frankenstein's evil legacy, and all hell breaks loose.

Whatever flaws this film might have are mightily compensated for by the terrific atmosphere, endearing voices (Felix sounds like Jimmy Stewart) and the unusual, existentialist ending. Whereas many Rankin/Bass Animagic* projects are designed by the gifted Paul Coker, this one is tackled by the wicked side of MAD Magazine, and it shows. MAD MONSTER PARTY? brings that holiday magic reserved for Christmas and shares it with Halloween - a feat later expanded upon by TIM BURTON'S NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

*The Rankin/Bass Animagic process is a stop-motion photography technique that uses three-dimensional figures.
