A powerful film that includes a detailed scene of the doctor peeling the skin off a victims' face. The atmosphere outweighs the plot in this eerie and sadistic masterpiece that has achieved cult status.

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (1974/Gruskoff/Venture/Crossbow/TCF) 108mins. BW. US.
Credits: Dir: Mel Brooks; Prod: Michael Gruskoff; Sc: Gene Wilder & Mel Brooks; Ph: Gerald Hirschfeld; Ed: John Howard; Art: Dale Hennessy; Sfx: Hal Millar & Henry Millar Jr.; Mu: William Tuttle; Mus: John Morris.
Cast: Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr, Ann Beesley, Kenneth Mars, Oscar Beregi, Madeline Kahn, Leon Askin, Gene Hackman, Liam Dunn, Danny Goldman, Richard Hayden, Rusty Blitz, Monty Landis, Lou Cutell, Richard Roth.
The American grandson of Baron Frankenstein, Frederick, (Wilder), denies his infamous ancestry until he is told by an old family retainer, (Haydn), that he has inherited the Baron's estate in Transylvania. At the castle he discovers his grandfather's secret formula and with the aid of Inga, (Garr), and his hunchbacked manservant Ygor, (Feldman), he makes his own monster, (Boyle). The monster escapes, meets a blind hermit, (Hackman), and finds love from Frankenstein's fiance, (Kahn).
This earnest homage to the early Frankenstein films is given the Brooks treatment, but despite the juvenile humour there are many moments to treasure, heightened by the monochrome photography that manages to capture the atmosphere of the original films. The laboratory sets were the same ones used in THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) designed by Kenneth Strickfaden.
