Top 10 Funny Halloween Movies

2. Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein

There is precisely one reason why you don’t agree that Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein deserves this high a ranking on this list. That reason is that you have seen all of the other films, just not this one. Abbott and Costello using actual Universal Horror icons Lon Chaney Jr. (as the Wolfman) and Bela Lugosi (as Dracula) and the more-than-serviceable Glenn Strange (as Frankenstein’s Monster) spawned a genre of Abbott and Costello movies almost a legendary as Universal Horror. However, go back and watch the original. Abbott and Costello are pitch-perfect as freight handlers caught in a museum where horror exhibits come to life. Dracula’s plan to use Costello’s brain in Frankenstein’s Monster is fought by Abbott and Lawrence Talbot. This would be until Talbot turns into the Wolfman. This is when the movie becomes a comic work of art.
