If Modern Horror Villains Invaded “The Monster Mash”…


The Universal monsters were able to plug into any number of more family friendly spin-offs back in the day – Abbott and Costello comedies, General Mills cereals, Rankin-Bass stop-motion specials – but could their modern counterparts do the same?

In this video from the Key of Awesome and Barely Political, a Karloff-like Frankenstein tries to sing the classic movie-inspired monster dance hit, but finds himself just a tad appalled at the way the new guys (and one girl) integrate themselves. The makeup effects may not be state of the art, but the impersonations are good and the rhymes are solid. It still doesn’t reveal what happened to the Transylvania Twist.
