Mel Brooks’ crazy tribute to Mary Shelley’s classic novel pokes hilarious fun at just about every Frankenstein movie ever made. Summoned by a will to his late grandfather’s castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (Wilder) soon discovers the scientist’s step-by-step manual explaining how to bring a corpse to life. Assisted by the hunchback Igor (Feldman) and the curvaceous Inga (Garr), he creates a monster (Boyle) who only wants to be loved.
