homage
25 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

have just watched this 2 parter on DVD - very enjoyable despite or because of the low budget feel - seems like a tribute to all the old 30s/40s universal monster movies - even though the "first" creature reminds me more of Harry h Corbett's Mr Hyde character in "carry on screaming!". This story has everything - creepy old house (well at first), interfering kids up to no good, bullying local heavies (without pitchforks), mad scientists laboratory, werewolf type monster and Frankenstein versus the wolfman type confrontation between the two hulks! David Banner (surely the CAMPEST ever, tragic, eccentric boffin?)and the journalist McGee do seem slightly lost and out of place in all this mayhem of nostalgia.

2 of the characters in this story are named after actors in the 1931 Frankenstein - Frye and Clive. Full marks to Harry Townes for a true scenery chewing performance as Dell Frye! What a script! What an accent! A gem.
