Vice Verse


Chaney Unchained.

Plugging away at GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN now at LimerWrecks — here, here, here here and also this collaboration  with ghost-host Hilary Barta. Despite the fact that the Universal monster series was really jumping the shark at this point, and GHOST OF is particularly hard to summon to memory, our odious odes are as fresh and pungent as ever.

There’s also this Edgar Allan Poe-m of which I am sinfully proud, and yet another on Dwight Frye.

And also lots by Mr. B, including a couple I feel deserve special mention — the true monsterworks here and here.

Alternatively, you could just read everything and using this link to the site.

  1. Mel Brooks’ marvelous Young Frankenstein is actually derived from Ghost of Frankenstein rather than the Whale original for the most part.

  2. More SON OF, I think — Kenneth Mars as the policeman tips the balance. GHOST OF is really undistinguished, despite Atwill (playing a different character) and Lugosi as Ygor again… SON OF also manages the difficult feat of being even campier than the Whales, albeit in a different pitch. Rathbone was no stranger to camp…

  3. David, you are so right about it being hard to remember–it certainly eludes my memory. And therefore I am grateful that you are the….um, brains of our rhyme-run on GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN.

  4. Speaking of camp (off-topic, but –)

  5. Christopher Says:

    I don’t know what it is about Lugosi and his Ygor outfit,but whenever he puts it on,magic happens..He nearly steals the show in Ghost as well as Son.

  6. He has a lot less competition in Ghost, but also less interesting material to work with. But yes, a brilliant characterisation from BL.
