Film information

Story: Double bill of classic comedy horror featuring Lou Abbott and Bud Costello. 'Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein' (1948) is a comic spoof of Universal's classic horror films. Baggage clerks Bud (Abbott) and Lou (Costello) find themselves in hot water when they lose a mysterious shipment en route to the House of Horrors. It transpires that the missing crates contained the remains of Count Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and Frankenstein's Monster (Glenn Strange). The crates have now been diverted to the island hideaway of a crazed scientist who wishes to revive the ghouls. The inept duo head off to the island to avert disaster, the arrival of the Wolfman (Lon Chaney Jr) complicates matters further. 'Abbott and Costello Meet The Mummy' (1955) is yet another comic horror spoof. Friends Pete (Abbott) and Freddie (Costello) are in Egypt when they offer to help archaeologist Dr Gustav Zoomer transport his newly-discovered mummy back to America. However, upon arrival at Zoomer's house the duo discover that the doctor has been murdered and the mummy vanished. Their problems increase when the men inherit a medallion which carries an ancient curse and they soon find themselves doing battle with villainous treasure seekers while struggling to keep the mummy's existence under wraps!
