Trivia

The Part of the Frankenstein Monster was originally offered to British actor and former strongman 'David Prowse' (Darth Vader), who declined due to health problems. The part then went to Brian Carrillo who had played the Monster on stage during a four year run in BEETLEJUICE'S GRAVEYARD REVIEW at the Universal Studios theme park in Hollywood. The Monster makeup design was altered to avoid copyright infringement issues with Universal Studios. See more »

cute, family fun, enjoyable monster movie for kids, Halloween fun
9 March 2001 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I recommend this film for families who would enjoy a monster movie but don't want their kids to see violence and gore. Adults, as well as kids, will be entertained by this light-hearted comedy. My own children thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fun to see Tommy Kirk of "Old Yeller" and "Swiss Family Robinson" fame. The boy who plays Billy was very cute and turned in a fine performance. We recognized Vernon Wells from the "Mad Max" movies. And the Frankenstein monster was a delight: funny, sweet and sensitive rather than scary and threatening.
