phyllis diller

Boris Karloff and Phyllis Diller both lend their voices to the claymation horror comedy "Mad Monster Party". Dr Frankenstein invites a bunch of monsters (including Dracula, The Creature From The Black Lagoon, Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man, to name a few) to his retirement party where he plans announce his successor, his nephew Felix. If you liked the Rankin and Bass holiday movies from the 60s and 70s, (Rudolph!!!) then it's pretty safe to assume that you will enjoy this forgotten gem. Filled with kooky monster fights, humor and catchy songs, it's worth a look for nostalgia's sake.

In case you were wondering -- and I'm almost positive most of you weren't -- I watch a lot of cheesy motion pictures produced during the 80's and 90's. And as sad as it may sound, I actually pride myself on the embarrassing number of films I've managed to stuff into my desensitized, oversaturated little mind. Diving into a creamy cinematic vat of genre-related obscurity is one of my favorite pastimes, rivaled only by my addiction to poorly-dubbed, low-budget kung fu movies, the sort that usually come packaged by the metric ton.
