Critics reviews

With total performative commitment on all fronts, Meet Frankenstein’s chills age better than more self-serious Universal horrors. Himself a vaudeville vet, director Barton trusted Abbott and Costello’s chemistry and rhythms to focus on the less familiar. Utilizing lavish backlot sets and bombastic music, Barton seamlessly fits the burlesque yuks and often abusive relationship into an ongoing storyline.
