The Hilarious House of Frightenstein is running on Space Monday-Thursday
6 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I didn't grow up with this show, but watched it while in University. It accompanied me through a lot of essays, lab reports, and all-nighters. I thought the show, and Billy Van were great! Humour, science, music, pets, monsters -- all the hooks! I loved Vincent Price, who was a regular, and a big part of the early horror/sci-fi genre. (His movie, "The Tingler" (1959) was amazing!) House of Frightenstein is good for kids, and great for the adults who remember it, or who are viewing for the first time. Hallowe'en approaches! Frightenstein is currently running on Space, at 11:00 pm, 12:00 noon, 6:00 pm, Monday through Thursday, as far as I can tell from TV listings.
