What do you get when you combine three of Hollywood's most hysterical talents with a creaky old castle and a werewolf legend?
At the mansion of his Great Aunt Kate (Dom DeLuise) Larry Abbot (Gene Wilder) is undergoing a psychological procedure designed to rid him of his irrational phobias... by frightening them out of him! But the jolts and frights may turn out to be the least of his problems when Great Aunt Kate names him her sole heir.
Suddenly the entire family seems a little too vigorous in participating in his "scare-apy" leading Larry to believe that one of his jealous kin may be murderous... and that another may be werewolverous!
About the Director
Gene Wilder is a retired American stage and screen actor, director, screenwriter, author and activist. Wilder began his career on stage, and made his screen debut in the TV-series Armstrong Circle Theatre in 1962. Although his first film role was portraying a hostage in the 1967 motion picture Bonnie and Clyde, Wilder's first major role was as Leopold Bloom in the 1968 film The Producers for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. This was the first in a series of collaborations with writer/director Mel Brooks, including 1974's Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein, the latter of which garnered the pair an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay. Wilder is known for his portrayal of Willy Wonka in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) and for his four films with Richard Pryor: Silver Streak (1976), Stir Crazy (1980), See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989), and Another You (1991).
