This month’s MONSTROUS QUESTION comes to us courtesy of our good friend Pete Dudar.
PETE: Okay, so what’s the best ‘mad scientist’ movie? Is it FRANKENSTEIN? RE-ANIMATOR? THE FLY? We fans want to know.
Our panel answers:
So first from my son Andrew: YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (1974), because the film is a riot.
Me, maybe I should go with the first movie that popped in my head when I read the question: Stanley Kubrick’s DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (1964). Peter Sellers played Strangelove as such a surreal, hilarious scientist, he brightened this very dark comedy.
