Young Frankenstein: the official plot

One of the most hilarious comedies ever that combines irony with a mystery horror adventure, Young Frankenstein tells the story of Dr. Frederick Frankenstein who inherits a family castle in Transylvania and decides to go and live there. His goal is to recreate the experiment that his grandfather had tried before him, creating a man by assembling the pieces of some corpses. Will he succeed in the enterprise?

The cast of Young Frankenstein

With the hashtag #FrankensteinJuniorNight, the promotion of this initiative has started on social media, also inviting people to compete with a challenge linked to the film and the iconic characters that have made it such a cult. How to forget Marty Feldman as the hunchback Igor with his eyes bulging and his unforgettable lines? Or Cloris Leachman as the icy and authoritarian Frau Blucher, or the creature animated by Peter Boyle and of course Gene Wilder as Doctor Frankenstein and Madeline Kahn his beloved Elizabeth?
