Cast: 8m., 14w., extras. “Laughing Room Only” is the best way to describe this insanely funny farce. The Frankenstein monster and his bride had two children—a boy and a girl—who look just like mom and pop. Their aunt decides to enroll them in an American school and brings them to the little town of Withering Heights over the objections of her gypsy servants who fear the villagers will attack. However¸ the baroness has brought along the gruesome Igor for protection. The football coach wants Shelley on the team¸ Vic is running for president of the student senate¸ Igor is chasing the biology teacher and the local sheriff is threatening to raid the high school because students will not pay their traffic citations! To add to the confusion¸ the Frankensteins have gotten their knowledge of American conversation by studying television commercials! The plot threatens to explode when the editor of the student paper discovers x-rays that prove the new arrivals aren’t all that human¸ and a theatrical agent smells big money. Biker Bozo Barnes and his gang are threatening a total wipeout¸ and a mob of irate citizens storm the Monster Stomp. Toss in a couple of scenes straight out of a Frankenstein film¸ and you’ve got some idea of the hilarity. The Frankensteins are back in town—and you’ll want to meet them¸ even if Withering Heights will never be the same. From the moment Vic and Shelley become part of the student “body” until pandemonium breaks loose at the musical Monster Stomp¸ the cast and audience are assured of a wild¸ side-splitting time. Approximate Running Time: 100 minutes.
