Fun way to introduce Dracula, Frankenstein and the Werewolf...

It's a fun way to get introduced to monsters like dracula, frankenstein and the werewolf. Costello is a comedic genius and had my son cracking up. A couple of scenes showed smoking pretty prominently... had to explain to my son that smoking was accepted at that time. Overall, my son was entertained by a black and white movie... I'd say that's pretty good.
