Polite young man
There are three back-to-back-to-back title cards in the opening credits that read:
The whole thing is largely ludicrous with some funny moments but it makes so little sense, and has so little going on most of the time, that it's not a well-rounded crowd pleaser.
I was quite skeptical considering the amount of “it’s just like a Universal monster movie” comments from people that don’t really watch Universal monster movies; just being black and white with old timey music doesn’t make it feel produced by Carl Laemmle tho. If anything I think it has more in common with William Castle than Universal’s classics.
It’s pretty good for what it is, and it’s not aiming for something mind blowing. In short, it’s mostly Halloween vibes, which I think is about all should ask of it.
