Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie, which combines black and white 40s comedy with classic screen monsters, may not translate well for children used to eye-dazzling special effects, or for younger children, who may become frightened of these classic screen monsters menacing lovable Costello. Older kids will identify with frightened Costello and enjoy the monster hijinx. Teens may laugh with (or at) the comedians and the monsters.

Sexual Content

Violence

Frankenstein burns up, evil Sandra is thrown out of a window, and the Werewolf plunges off a cliff with Dracula, but all the violence is mitigated by comic Costello. Scenes of the Werewolf transforming, and of Dracula and the Werewolf menacing Wilbur may frighten younger viewers but amuse older ones.
