Story:
Two hapless baggage clerks, Abbott and Costello, are assigned to take care of the boxes containing the remains of Frankenstein’s Monster and Count Dracula. The remains are to be exhibited in the local house of horrors, but suddenly, both monsters come back to life.
Dracula plans to steal Costello’s brain to put it in the Monster’s head, but the Wolf Man (Chaney Jr.) shows up to thwart the vampire Count.

A zany horror spoof that plays up and then plays into the best of Universal horror cliches.
