Mad Monster Party?

Happy Tuesday fellow creepsters!

Today I am reviewing a some what obscure film, it's called Mad Monster Party and was released in 1967 and is a stop motion movie much like Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer and all the other holiday movies of the time.

This movie was directed by Jules Bass and stars Boris Karloff and Phyills Diller.

When Dr Frankenstein decides to retire from the monster-making business, he calls an international roster of monsters to a creepy convention to elect his successor. Everyone is there including Dracula, The Werewolf, The Creature, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde and many more. But Frankenstein's title is not all that is at stake. The famous doctor has also discovered the secret of total destruction that must not fall into the wrong hands! --- Summary taken from IMDB

What makes this movie great is that all of the classic monsters make an appearance. The stop motion is a bit rough, but you really can't expect much from the period. This movie is on Netflix and would make a great family Halloween night. 

IMDB rates this a 6.4 out of 10 stars Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 67% with a 64% audience approval rating. I am going to give this a 4 out of 5 skulls, really cute movie that is an oldie but a goodie.

Until tomorrow,
Sleep tight and don't let the zombies bite!
