Plot Summary:
"After escaping from an asylum the mad Dr. Niemann (Boris Karloff) and his hunch back assistant (J. Carrol Naish) revive Count Dracula (John Carradine), the Wolf Man (Lon Chaney Jr.) and the Frankenstein monster (Glenn Strange) in order to extract revenge upon their many enemies."

Set after 'Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man', we have Boris Karloff as an opportunistic criminal with a hunchback servant (the wonderful, bitter J. Carroll Naish) picking up the cursed lycanthrope Larry Talbot (the underrated Lon Chaney Jr.) and promising to end his suffering.

Along the way they encounter Dracula himself (John Carradine) and newlywed Anne Gwynne, whom all of the characters seem to fancy. Anyhow, our characters all end up at the title estate and meet The Monster (the uninteresting Glenn Strange), where pretty much bugger all of interest happens.

Karloff is in fine diabolical form, and both Naish and Chaney are excellent, but with Carradine as the screen's least suave Count, and a deadening pace, it's hard to be enthusiastic about this one, despite it's Monster Mash gimmick.

Dracula's omission might've been beneficial, but it's still overpopulated anyway.

One of the weakest of Universal's horror cycle, this one is occasionally well-acted but slow, dull and entirely forgettable.
