Fathom Events Brings YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN to the Big Screen for a New Generation12:37 AM
Fathom Events brings a "Young Frankenstein" LIVE event to the big screen with Mel Brooks doing a live intro from FOX studios.
The hilarious intro was a great addition to the 1974 "Young Frankenstein," which had the entire audience laughing throughout the entire movie as the late Gene Wilder delivers yet another stunning performance.
To add to the spectacular night, Mel Brooks announced a book adaptation of "Young Frankenstein: The Story of the Making of the Film," out on Oct. 18.
The great grandson of Victor Frankenstein, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein, played by Wilder, receives his grandfather's will.
Wilder is a phenomenal in the role with great wit and perfect comedy timing. The way the story flows, the good plot and the great twists are make his performance stellar.
Frederick encounters servant Igor, played by Marty Feldman, Frau Blucher, played by Cloris Leachman, assistant Inga, played buy Teri Garr, and the monster Peter Boyle.
Feldman is another great comedy addition with suggestive lines and hilarious mannerisms.
Leachman is phenomenal in her role although she isn't on screen much.
Boyle is great as the monster and his transformation is amazing. The role is played great, comically and flows well from scene to scene.
The comedy holds up through the years, its as funny now as it was in 1974.
I give this classic comedy a 5 out of 5 Popcorns. It's not just a classic comedy, it's a timeless comedy which does a fantastic job of not only being a great parody, but an homage to the classic Universal Pictures' horror movies, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" is treated well and recreated in a funny way.
