The Hilarious House of Frightenstein: A Halloween Treat

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Reviews

One of my gateway horror shows. I had 2 VHS tapes and watched them numerous times. Hilarious House of Frightenstein or HHF is a Canadian kids monster show from the 1970s. Naturally, I was drawn to it for the simple fact that Vincent Price was one of the stars. 

Let me break it down for you. A quirky sketch comedy series that included some educational content amid its zany humor all centered around classic horror characters. The show's cast included Billy Van, Fishka Rais, Guy Big, Mitch Markowitz, Vincent Price, and Julius Sumner Miller. The characters are as followed: Count Frightenstein, Igor, Wolfman, Grammer Slammer ghost, Grizelda, the Ghastly Gourmet, Dr. Pet Vet, The Librarian, The Oracle, Gronk the purple sea serpent, and The Gorilla.

Now for the best news, it is now free to stream. Tubitv

So if you like classic horror TV then this is right up your alley. The series ran for a total of 130 episodes. A pretty long run for a show that isn’t as talked about today. The incredible Canadian series is like anything else that has been done since. It has the feel of Hammer films along with the fun aspects of William Castle. It was a well-done series that is easily something that falls into the category of comfort watching and perfect Halloween viewing.
