Host Anna Van Valin examines the lasting impact Mel Brooksâ€™ Young Frankenstein has had on the genres of both comedy and horror. Anna asks what horror and humor have in common in an exclusive interview with legendary writer/director Mel Brooks and producer Michael Gruskoff. In his signature storytelling style, Mel shares tales of seeing James Whaleâ€™s genre-defining Frankenstein at age 5, his profound partnership with Gene Wilder, and how he used the funniest cast in Hollywood to create a classic horror film that was authentic down to its cobwebs. Film critic and podcast host Amy Nicholson (Unspooled, Halloween Unmasked) adds greater understanding of horror and comedy conventions, and how Young Frankenstein was able to celebrate and subvert those expectations to create a masterpiece that was both chilling and hilarious.
