Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Glimpy's surprisingly beautiful sister is getting married to Jack, a young engineer, and moving to a 'bargain' suburban house neither has ever seen. During the honeymoon, the East Side Kids decide to fix up the house for the newlyweds...but mistakenly pick the 'haunted' house next door, which is occupied by some mysterious live men, dodging in and out of secret panels and clearly up to no good...
You'll yell with glee when these happy-go-lucky hooligans invade the shivery domain of the Man of a Thousand Horrors! It's Chill-arious!

- The EAST SIDE KIDS vs. the Man of a THOUSAND HORRORS!
- Glimpy: Hey, why can't I sing in da quartet? I used to sing in a quartet wit' six members!
Scruno: [whispering] Mister, you dropped your flowers, [normal tone] Scruno: I guess he didn't hear me.
Mugs: [reading the card on the wreath of flowers the boys brought in] 'We didn't mean to shoot you Louie, honest'. You stole a dead guy's flowers? Don't you know that sacrelilious? Put them back... hold it, I guess it wouldn't be any more sacrelilious to put them back after the ceremony.
Mugs: [to Glimpy] Any normal person can get normal measles, but you gotta pick a fight with a Nazi and get German measles. [Glimpy's face is covered in Swastikas]
Mugs: [to the quartet] Now remember your crescendos and your de-u-endos.
- If you listen carefully, you can hear Bela Lugosi sneeze a four letter word. Director William Beaudine left it in.
Shot in six days.
This film would mark the final appearance of Ernest Morrison (Scruno) as an active member of the East Side Gang. Morrison would later appear in Follow the Leader (1944), but only in a flashback sequence using archive footage from Flying with Music (1942).
SPOILER: A second four letter word made it past the censors as well. In the scene where Emil and his gang capture two of the East Side Kids, several shouts are heard as they struggle to escape. As the scene first comes into view, the first shout is a very clear exclamation using a four letter word.
