Film Description
Everyone's favorite monsters are stuck at the stoplight. Traffic is a vexation--even for the undead!


UPDATE:
Hello and thank you to everyone that has taken the time to watch and rate this movie. I appreciate it very much. Many fans have asked me about the script, so I am posting the full text here:

EXT NIGHT. MED SHOT OF A LUXURIOUS CHRYSLER 300 SEDAN DRIVING DOWN AN URBAN STREET. AT THE WHEEL IS FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER, WITH HIS BRIDE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT, COUNT DRACULA IN THE BACKSEAT BEHIND THE DRIVER AND A WEREWOLF NAMED WOLVERTON SEATED NEXT TO THE NOTORIOUS VAMPIRE.

THE 300 SLOWLY PULLS UP AT A STOPLIGHT. CUT TO INT MED SHOT OF THE 300 AS THE BRIDE UPBRAIDS FRANKENSTEIN'S CHOICE IN ROUTES TO THEIR DESTINATION.

BRIDE
Frank, I told you if we went this way we'd hit all of these stoplights.

FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER
Traffic worse on expressway. Me say this shortcut.

BRIDE
Shortcut or not, we're going to be late as slow as you drive.

COUNT DRACULA
(in a heavy Romanian accent)
Do not be concerned by your husband's navigation, my dear. The shortage of time is but a vexation for the living.

WOLVERTON
A vexation? Seriously, Drac??? I used to think the reason why I never understood a word you said was because of your freaky accent, but now I realize it's because you talk like it's still 1897.

COUNT DRACULA
I wouldn't expect a common lycanthrope like you to understand. Vampires such as I have a vocabulary that???

WOLVERTON (mockingly)
"Voh-cah-boo-larry?"

CUT TO CLOSE UP OF FRANKENSTIEN'S MONSTER AS HE SHAKES HIS HEAD

FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER
Me hate long stoplight.

CUT TO INT MED SHOT OF 300's FRONT SEAT

BRIDE
We wouldn't have to sit here at the light if someone would've taken the expressway like I told him too an???oh, look Frank! What kind of car is that next to us?

WOLVERTON
(Howls) I like those curves!

CUT TO MED SHOT OF A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE CHRYSLER CROSSFIRE PULLING UP TO THE MONSTER'S CAR AT THE STOPLIGHT. THE WOMAN TILTS HER HEAD MODESTLY AND LOOKS OVER AT THE MONSTERS IN THE CAR NEXT TO HER WITHOUT SHOWING ANY FEAR.

COUNT DRACULA
Look at the beautiful woman in that car. She gazes into my eyes with wonder.

WOLVERTON
Yeah, 'cause she saw your red bowtie and wondered: "Is that Pee Wee Herman?"

BRIDE
Don't get me wrong; I like our sedan but sometimes I think Frank and I should've bought a bigger car. You know, in case we have little monsters.

FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER GRUNTS DISAPPROVINGLY. CUT TO WOLVERTON AS HE FIDGETS IN HIS SEAT. THE MOON IS FULL AND HE BEGINS TO CHANGE INTO THE MAN-WOLF

WOLVERTON
Yo Frankie? Can you open the moonroof? I'm feelin' a little??? wolfy.

FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER
Ugh! Why light not change?

THE MAN-WOLF HOWLS AT THE MOON AND CLAWS AT COUNT DRACULA. THE OLD VAMPIRE CRIES OUT AND SWATS BACK AT THE MAN-WOLF

COUNT DRACULA
Ah! Get away from me you stupid talking dog!

BRIDE
Oh no you don't! Do not wolf out in this car! We just had the car detailed and you're going to get hair all over the backseat! I knew this was going to happen, Frank. If you would've listened to me and taken the expressway???

FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER GRUNTS ANGRILY. CUT TO LONG SHOT OF BOTH CARS PULLING AWAY FROM THE STOPLIGHT. FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER STEPS ON THE GAS AND BARRELS AROUND THE CORNER IN ANGER. THE SOUND OF A WOLF SNARLING, COUNT DRACULA COMPLAINING, AND THE BRIDE YELLING AT FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER CAN BE HEARD UNDER THE GROWL OF THE CHRYSLER 300'S ENGINE.

FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER
Me want smaller car. No want to drive other monsters anymore!

FADE OUT

A funny film, very well acted and well paced. Good writing which successfully packed some cracking jokes into the 2 and a half minutes.

The gothic horror stereotypes were played to perfection.

This is definately not the "FART" type comedy. I was laughing and it was witty of you to use these different characters. I especially liked the woman. Whoever did the voices for her...Brilliant.

However it is a little short, but that's understandable because it's for the chrysler competition. A must see and a huge contender for the competition.

F--k Dracula and Wolfman Jack. They are terrible, one-note jokes that only Goths laugh at. They are clown shoes. If they were real, I'd beat them for being so stupid. I can't believe Molyneux would have anything to do with this! But the movie was greatness so... five stars from me.

Funny stuff throughout this great idea that is extremely well executed. Only flaw was timing could have been better on one of the jokes. Personally I'd have switched the order of "Why lights not change?" and the previously setup punchline that follows it.

Wow! I love the VOs in this movie. They're very clear and crisp. Excellent work!

I love the dialogue in this movie ... it makes them feel comical. The editing was great and the situation was hilarious.

Overall, it's a great movie and deserves 5-stars.

My soft spot is classic horror and if someone makes a comedy spoof out of them it better be a good one.
Its a good one!
Great VO's and a lot of effort put into small details.
Good premise and delivery and creative script, good movie.
Was hovering at 4.2 but sod it, Ninja's be damned!

Lycanthropes, wamphyrs and the reanimated dead take a sunday drive . . . in hell! Truly decadent acting and topnotch editing help this comedy classic kick the competition in the groin!
