Young Frankenstein (US BD) in October

Fox brings you Mel Brooks’ horror spoof on a Blu-ray Disc that while overpriced, offers a bevy of new material…

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the US Region A Blu-ray Disc release of Young Frankenstein on 7th October 2008 priced at $39.98 SRP. Mel Brooks’ crazy tribute to Mary Shelley’s classic novel pokes fun at just about every Frankenstein movie ever made.
