Bride of Frankenstein review

FilmCrave
3 October 2013
  • Excerpt: In this picture we see what happens to Frankenstein. The over acting of certain background characters were evident and we only see a glimpse of the Bride of Frankenstein. The build-up was not enough and the conclusion seems rushed much like the first.

  • Summary: Very good old horror movie in which a bride for Frankenstein is made. To me, this is not quite as good as Frankenstein, but it's close.

Definitely an essential collection!

  • Excerpt: My ratings for movie, video, audio, and extras are cumulative (and should be more like 4.8), as some films deserve a 5 for movie and video, and others a 3.5 for movie, but never less than 4.5 or possibly a 4 for video or audio.

Creature from the Black Lagoon 3D Version

themadpanner, blu-ray.com
29 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Here is as we all know some early 3D in wonderful Black & White and the BD is really quite good. From the very start with the explosions of the earth being created the 3D effects are very good, OK not up to today's productions but at least it was shot in 3D.

Please correct me....

Eggman961, blu-ray.com
29 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I can't help but wonder something, and here's where my technical knowledge of Blu-Ray falls short...but isn't there enough room on these 50G discs for Universal to have included the subsequent sequels, etc. that were on the Legacy Collection discs? (Son of Frank, Ghost, House of Frank, etc.).

A great set

  • Excerpt: The only gripe I have with this set is the inclusion of The Phantom of the Opera. I would have loved to see The Incredible Shrinking Man instead. Regardless, a very stellar BD set and worth owning.

  • Summary: Not quite as melancholy as the first, but probably a little scarier. Paired with Frankenstein, this film is a movie monster classic that still has its share of chills.

Bride of Frankenstein: The Best of the Bunch!

FilmCrave
10 March 2009
  • Excerpt: "Bride of Frankenstein" is probably the best of the Universal Frankenstein films of the 1930's and 1940's. Boris Karloff reprises the role for this film and manages to show a subtle evolution of the character, creating a sympathetic monster who longs for true friendship.

Unmissable for monster lovers

  • Summary: This is a great box for an unbeatable price. The 8 films look great on Blu-ray; a lot better than their dvd versions. Even though some are them are more than 75 (!) years old, the upgrade in image quality warrants a purchase on Blu-ray.

Superb

ELB, Zavvi
13 October 2014
  • Summary: 8 classic movies on blu-ray for only €19 in the Zavvi clearance sale, what a price. Each movie was meticulously restored, video and audio. Critics mentioned how the movies had not looked that good even when released theatrically in the 1930's. Any horror fans dream.
