The Wagon-y and the Ecstasy

It's a very enlightening show
Full of rare, terror sights and tableaux
You'll view horrors historic
And two gore-hounds euphoric
Plus one scary old biter in tow.

In House of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton, 1944), the highlight of the travelling "Chamber of Horrors" is "The Actual Skeleton of Count Dracula the Vampire". Drac is played by John Carradine; the pair of "gore-hounds" are Dr. Niemann and Daniel, a hunchback, played by Boris Karloff and J. Carrol Naish.
