Very loosely based on Mary Shelley's book; mostly a parody of the many "serious" movies made of the book.
Some of the schticks are dated now, but it was hilarious at the time. ( )

Brooks masterpiece is really a parody of "Son of Frankenstein," a nearly perfect over-the-top send up of horror flicks, and has some genuinely scary bits too. Gene Wilder is in his element, and Boyle is perfect as the monster. ( )
