If you mix the most famous vampire of all time Bela Lugosi (Plan 9 from Outer Space) with the goofy gang the East Side Kids, the results are going to be fantastically ridiculous. That’s just what Spooks Run Wild accomplishes: madcap comedy and ludicrous action. When the Kids go to summer camp, they hear rumors of a killer monster that’s on the loose. The Kids meet Lugosi in passing, who plots their capture by tricking them into his creepy haunted mansion. Dopey gags ensue, and the comedy holds up surprisingly well, as the Kids attempt to turn the tables by capturing and trapping Lugosi. Spooks Run Wild is a shameless good time that goes great with a large bucket of popcorn on a raining night.
