Every week, a group of Internet radio superstars known as the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Travis and Sean) file into a subterranean screening room somewhere in Freakshow, IL where they witness sights & sounds undreamed of by mortal men. They emerge... changed, not quite the beings they once were. Good or bad, they will debate the merits of what they have just experienced for the entertainment of you, the listener, and the betterment of mankind.
This week, we usher in Halloween with Colin's pick of Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948), a famous monster-rally that has comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello running afoul of Dracula (Bela Lugosi), the Frankenstein Monster (Glenn Strange), and The Wolf Man (Lon Chaney, Jr.). Join us as we talk about the impact and legacy of the Universal Studios Monsters, vaudevillian comedy acts, Hammer films, and more!
