Movie Info

This 1968 children's film centers around a meeting of monsters--including Dracula, the Mummy, the Werewolf, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and others--to elect a replacement for their leader, Baron Boris von Frankenstein (voice of Boris Karloff). Conflict arises understandably in this document of the 'Animagic' process (whereby figures are filmed with stop-motion photography).

Witty, sophisticated and delightful animated parody.

A novel animated gem for the Halloween season...

nostalgia is key in this loving pastiche of bygone horror. The outmodedness of the villains, even the corniness of the gags, only adds to the film's irresistible charms. It is a fitting swansong to the whole era of 'castle horror'

It doesn't take much effort to spot the short cuts the filmmakers have taken.

November 6, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

... the mix of innocence, stop-motion slapstick, off-beat spoofing, and just plain goofiness is a lot of fun, and sometimes the sheer absurdity of it all can sneak up on you.

Clunky but charming; the subject and animatronic effects helped inspire The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Audience Reviews for Mad Monster Party

I liked this movie because of the cast and the cool puppets, but I didn't like this movie because it tries too hard to be funny and the songs are annoying. Overall, it's okay, but I was expecting more from the title and actors.

I'm not a big fan of the Rankin/Bass specials, but I do appreciate all of the hard work that went into them. It's nice to see them tackle something other than Christmas for a change, but the overall product just isn't as much fun as I'd hoped it would be.

Pretty cool stop motion, with some of the songs.
