LET'S WATCH: The Hilarious House of Frightenstein

The Hilarious House of Frightenstein is  a ghoulishly good television series that aired long ago. It was made right here in Canada in a studio in Hamilton. The host is the always delightful Vincent Price who pops up every so often to introduce the next bit. And what bits they are! Frightenstone Castle is chock full of some of the most wonderfully weird characters you could ever hope to meet such as:
  • The Count - a vampire mad scientist with a thick Pennsylvanian accent who is always trying to resurrect his monster, Bruce ( handsome fellow who bears a strong resemblance to the Frankenstein monster)
  • Igor - the Counts dashing assistant
  • Grizelda - a vivacious witch who has her own cooking show
  • Wolfman - a furry and fun radio host who spins records and jokes galore
...and many more.

If you like a good laugh and a spooky scare at the same time, don't hesitate to knock on the doors of Frightenstone Castle and join in the mayhem in this treasured old series.

Another lovely day begins
For ghosts and ghouls with greenish skin
So close your eyes and you will find
That you've arrived in Frightenstein

Perhaps the Count will find a way
To make his monster work today
For if he solves this monster-mania
He can return to Transylvania

So welcome where the sun won't shine
To the castle of Count Frightenstein!
