Gene Wilder directed and wrote (along with Terence Marsh) this mild farce which is a pale reminder of Wilder's glory days in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. Wilder plays ham radio actor Larry Abbot, who takes his fiancee Vickie Pearle (Gilda Radner) out to meet his relations on a gloomy country estate before they are married. The creepy clan is lorded over by the bizarre Aunt Kate (Dom DeLuise), who keeps babbling about a local rampaging werewolf. As Larry and Vickie try to spend a quiet weekend in the mansion, they are assaulted with all manners of spooky goings-on -- the kind of routines that were already growing whiskers when Abbott and Costello first dusted them off over fifty years ago.~Paul Brenner

This movie is definitely a favorite of mine! I’ve always enjoyed this movie. It is definitely funny and does make you think and wonder who IS the werewolf in this movie. It does not have blood or gore in this one so it should be safe for young kiddos. It more then likely will become one of your personal favorites if you give it a chance. It has a great group of actors in this movie and a pretty good storyline as well.
This BluRay version of the comedy classic is a fantastic addition to any collection. The transfer and audio quality is vastly superior to my previous DVD copy and looks amazing. The black levels are well balanced and details are visible across the darker parts of the film. Spend an evening an enjoy this cult-classic comedy - you will not be disappointed.
