Did You Know?


Vincent Price's monologues were done over the course of a few days, and the producers were dissatisfied with them being insufficiently scary. Price complained there was nothing he could do with his lines being so badly written. As a result of the producers conceding the point, the writers had to pull all-nighters rewriting the material to suit Price's needs. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the 1990s the Wolfman's voice was dubbed so he called the music "golden oldies" in order not to make the 20 year-old music segments seem dated. See more »

Hilarious House of Frightenstein was a perfect show!

I love classic low budget Canadian shows that were still great. Even though they had little money to spend on their productions they made great shows because they obviously really cared, and this show for kids is maybe the best example of that.

Billy Van was a true talent who played most of the characters himself but it played them differently enough that it wasn't annoying and they actually seemed like different people. The characters and skits were very creative and fun and also educational pieces were shown for the value of the children.

I am lucky to have found some DVDs of this show at the pawn shop this summer and the shows are just as great as I remember them.

Great, campy fun! That's how I would describe it. To think it was made right in my home town of Hamilton at CHCH where so many other great shows (Smith and Smith Comedy Mill) were made and they continue making good shows today (This Movie Sucks) that are Canadian and proudly low budget despite their good quality. I still can't believe they had Vincent Price! That is so awesome.
