Did You Know?

Trivia:
Even though this short was produced by Universal Studios, the makers decided not to use footage from the company's own version of Dracula, opting instead to use footage from the German Nosferatu film of 10 years earlier.See more »

Funny Little Short Film, 31 January 2008
Author: Scars_Remain from United States

I watched this short film on the special features of the Frankesntein legacy collection DVD and found it pretty darn hilarious. It's obviously nothing amazing or to write home about but I think you'll find it pretty entertaining if you're a fan of Nosferatu and Frankenstein. Don't take it too seriously.

I thought the narrator was really funny and had some very clever lines. The clips from Frankenstein and Nosferatu are always great but with the commentary put over them, they were hilarious. Check this one out for a good laugh and I think you'll find yourself enjoying it for the most part. Not much else to say.
