Low budget show for kids... becomes a cult classic!

"Frightenstein, to me- seems like a show
that never planned on gaining the following
it has today; it didn't get its fans by being
the most commercial show out there.
It was a low-budget Canadian show,
that had almost an accidental brilliance to it.
Whether you were 5 years old...or 10 years old-
or 30 years old, you never forgot the unique feeling
of watching an episode
It was just something completely different.
So bizarre and entertaining, yet so simple!
Nothing ever changed in that castle.
We always knew that Igore would never keep his new pet,
we always knew the gorilla would get bonked with the ball,
and we always knew that Grammar Slammer would never let
Bammer actually SLAM Igore....
But we just couldn't change the channel!
Even if you hated the show- its originality
stayed in the back of your mind- tattooed on your brain.
For some people it was even a guilty pleasure-
that they came home early from work to watch!
Vincent Price and Canadian actor Billy Van
made this show something special.
A true gem from our childhoods.
And now...with its long awaited DVD release,
a whole new cult...is about to discover....
THE CASTLE OF COUNT FRIGHTENSTEIN !!!!!
Stick with the Canadian Box Set

"It's clear that the 3-DVD from Canada is a far superior version. 13 full one-hour episodes vs. 4 chopped up half-hour episodes on the US version. Whether you're a long-time fan or just discovering this hilarious horrorthon, the version from our neighbors to the north is surely the way to go. Check out the alternate new/used section to see if it's available from indy sellers."
Actually I bought the whole show from amazon canada!
