“The scariest comedy of all time!”
Mel Brooks’ comic masterpiece YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (“it’s pronounced ‘Fronkensteen'”) is gonna be puttin’ on the ritz all over our big screen, just in time for Halloween! In this spoof of Mary Shelley’s gothic literary tale, the grandson of Victor Frankenstein (a neurosurgeon) has spent his life living down the legend of his grandfather – even changing the pronunciation of his name. When he discovers his grandfather’s diary, he begins to feel differently, and returns to the family castle to satisfy his curiosity by replicating his ancestor’s experiments. In the process, he creates one very unique monster. Featuring an all-star cast including the one and only Gene Wilder (in one of his best-ever performances), Madeline Kahn, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr, and Cloris Leachman.
“Gene Wilder’s hysteria seems perfectly natural. You never question what’s driving him to it; his fits are lucid and total. They take him into a different dimension — he delivers what Harpo promised.” (The New Yorker)
