Baron Von Frankenstein (voice of Boris Karloff) has decided to retire as the head of the Worldwide Organization of Monsters.  But first, he must inform the other monsters about his plans.  How to deliver the news?  How else - through a Mad Monster Party!  Von Frankenstein’s guests include a who’s who of Halloween favorites, including The Werewolf, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Mummy, The Invisible Man and more. But who among them is fit to be the new head of the monsters?

Can't lie to you ... I've

Can't lie to you ... I've watched it, and it was a struggle to make it through. I love all things classic horror ... just about anything between the early 30's and early 70's ... but Mad Monster Party is just so mind-numbingly inane.
