Early, light-headed spoof..., 16 May 2004
Author: Coventry from the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls

Boo! comes as a nice little extra feature on the Frankenstein-DVD. It's definitely worth a watch as it may be one of the very first spoofs ever made. A voice-over guides footage from "Frankenstein", "Nosferatu" and some of "The Cat Creeps". Separate scary parts from both movies are perfectly edited into each other and the narrator's figurative language mostly results in subtle chuckling. Check it out when you're browsing through the DVD-extra's! It won't take much of your precious time (Boo! only lasts 10 minutes) and it's most certainly make you laugh! Much funnier than later comedies and horror spoofs. This little short is thought up by Albert DeMond who wrote an endless amount of screenplays. Merely comedy and drama.
