Will Robinson meets The Bride of Frankenstein
28 February 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I have just seen Rascal for the first time and found it very enjoyable. One reason for me purchasing this movie was for two of its stars, who have played two of the most well known characters in science fiction: Billy Mumy, who played Will Robinson in Lost In Space and The Bride of Frankenstein herself, Elsa Lanchester who plays a school teacher in this.

A boy has just broke up from school for the summer and he finds a raccoon which he takes in as a pet and names it Rascal. The boy is on his own for most of the holiday as his sister and dad are working away. His mum is dead. So he, Rascal and his pet dog get up to all sorts of adventures, and cause chaos in the process. But time comes eventually to send Rascal back into the wild and does so at the end and meets a fellow raccoon.

Rascal is nicely shot in colour and contains some good scenery.

Also in the cast are Steve Forest and Pamela Toll. Narration is provided by another star who is well known for one of his sci-fi movies: Walter Pigeon (Forbidden Planet).

Rascal is a nice way to spend an hour and a half one evening. Excellent.

Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
