SYNOPSIS

youngfrankenstein_poster_small_2.jpg

Doctor Frederick Frankenstein leaves his fiancée and a prestigious position at a leading medical school behind to sort out an old family estate he has inherited in Transylvania. Upon arrival, he discovers an old laboratory and manuscripts, and attempts to renew his grandfather’s infamous legacy by bringing a corpse back to life. With lots of help (and hindrance) from his new partners in crime: estate manservant/general dogsbody Igor, ever eager lab assistant Inga and loyal housekeeper of the Transylvanian castle, Frau Blücher, Freddy tries to continue his experiments while keeping an angry mob of villagers at bay. To his amazement, Frederick’s endeavours find success, but also lead to increasingly outrageous situations and decidedly unexpected results!

“Delightfully nutty! Glittering, buoyant fun that tickles its audience into high spirits! CLASSIC BROOKS!”
- Los Angeles Times
