I honestly think this sounds pretty fun. As much as I'd love a new batch of serious, Gothic horror movies based on the Universal Monsters, I think there's room for something like this as well. I'm curious to see how this comes together (hopefully it actually gets made in the end).

This already exists.

We did the play, "I'm Sorry the Bridge is Out, You'll Have to Spend the Night" in high school my senior year. Our theater teacher knew I was a classic horror buff and since I was the "leader" in the department, wanted to do this as our fall performance and gave me a heads up the spring before. I wanted to play Dr. Frankenstein soooooooo badly; I spent the summer growing my sideburns to look like Peter Cushing and memorized one of his monologues for my audition. Unfortunately I was cast as the hero lead :(

Some people have compared 1995 "Monster Mash", to a PG "Rocky Horror Picture show". The 1995  Monster Mash film is actually 1966s "I'm Sorry the Bridge is Out, You'll Have to Spend the Night" with the song "Monster Mash" included a few times. I bought a VHS copy, since as far as I know, the film has never been put on DVD or Blu Ray, and it was an opportunity to see Boris Pickett playing Dr. Frankenstein. The voice of the Cryptkeeper is on board as Igor. I would be curious to see if the new film is decent.

It won't win any Rondo's, but I liked it!
