'''''Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man''''' is a UniversalHorror movie from 1943. It is a sequel for both ''Film/TheWolfMan1941'' and ''Film/TheGhostOfFrankenstein'' and it is Universal's first MonsterMash film.

Four years after his death in ''The Wolf Man'', Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) is awakened from his slumber when two vagrants attempt to rob his grave. After instantly transforming into a WolfMan and killing one of the robbers, he finds himself in Cardiff, Wales.

After his warnings of his [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent lycanthropy]] are ignored, he escapes and starts searching for the {{Gypsy}}-woman Maleva (Maria Ouspenskaya), in hopes that she'll know how to kill him permanently. The two set out for the Eastern European village of Vasaria, where, according to Maleva, a certain Dr. Frankenstein lives.

After reaching the place and finding out that Dr. Ludwig Frankenstein is dead and his place is in ruins (as seen in the end of ''The Ghost of Frankenstein''), they attempt to continue, when Larry transforms yet again and in the next morning wakes up in the basement of the ruins. There he finds the FrankensteinsMonster (Creator/BelaLugosi) trapped in a block of ice.
