Editorial Reviews

The brilliant camp classic Canadian TV show of the 70s, featuring the quintessential horror king, Vincent Price. This live action show, which combined variety, humor, top 40 music, and educational segments, were all flavored by the spice of mock horror, at Castle Frightenstein.

Special Features

None.

It's clear that the 3-DVD from Canada is a far superior version. 13 full one-hour episodes vs. 4 chopped up half-hour episodes on the US version. Whether you're a long-time fan or just discovering this hilarious horrorthon, the version from our neighbors to the north is surely the way to go. Check out the alternate new/used section to see if it's available from indy sellers.

Frightenstein, to me- seems like a show
that never planned on gaining the following
it has today; it didn't get its fans by being
the most commercial show out there.

It was a low-budget Canadian show,
that had almost an accidental brilliance to it.
Whether you were 5 years old...or 10 years old-
or 30 years old, you never forgot the unique feeling
of watching an episode

It was just something completely different.
So bizarre and entertaining, yet so simple!
Nothing ever changed in that castle.
We always knew that Igore would never keep his new pet,
we always knew the gorilla would get bonked with the ball,
and we always knew that Grammar Slammer would never let
Bammer actually SLAM Igore....

But we just couldn't change the channel!
Even if you hated the show- its originality
stayed in the back of your mind- tattooed on your brain.
For some people it was even a guilty pleasure-
that they came home early from work to watch!

Vincent Price and Canadian actor Billy Van
made this show something special.
A true gem from our childhoods.
And now...with its long awaited DVD release,
a whole new cult...is about to discover....
THE CASTLE OF COUNT FRIGHTENSTEIN !!!!!

Thanks for the reviewers who said to get the Canadian version. To think of the U.S. version of this DVD having an added laugh track and the original 1 hour episodes hacked up to 30 minutes makes me cringe. I'm enjoying this DVD set as a first time viewer. Very campy fun. I first heard of this show as a preview on a Digiview "Kimba The (White) Lion" dollar DVD. We have yet to find a copy of the $1 DVD but in our search found the set for sale. As mentioned earlier, try Amazon Canada, You can get the DVD set for less than $25. The US to Canadian dollar conversion is almost the same. I've seen the Canadian version on an online Auction site (Starts with an E ends in Y) go for $75. It pays to shop around.
