    Great insights into a classic film genre

    The classic Universal Studios Frankenstein films, while only slightly faithful to the original book, have branded the characters into humanity's consciousness. By today's standards the films are not scary--they still evoke an eerie atmosphere that is hard to escape. Inconsistencies in the plot and period-stiff dialogue abound, but these movies are about suspending disbelief anyway. It's great to have all this content together in one set, and the packaging is artful.

    On the practical physical side, the hub/spoke plastic packaging is a problem. I have no complaint with the swift delivery. The discs, however, arrived with several annoying (flow-interrupting) gouges which had to be buffed out before I could watch a couple of the films in their entirety. When I first opened the book-like box, the second disc fell out into my lap; it must have become dislodged during shipping or handling. Improved quality control or different packaging, especially for multi-disc sets could alleviate this flaw.

    Stick around Frankenstein coming in nex

    Frankenberry Boo Berry and Count Chocula. It may as well be Mount Rushmore nowadays huh? This is just a must see classic and another study in Film Noir that raging Bull tried to recapture in the 1980's

    Burning torches incantations human sacrifice and the classic electrical shock voltage which brought the monster to life that the recent Star Wars tried to recreate on Anakin Skywalker. But this is the original. Be certain to bring enough spinach orderves for everyone.

    Scary Wonderful Cinema

    What a great collection. Super prints and the extras are great. You will learn a lot of fascinating details. I have never see these films in such good prints before, and I first saw Frankenstein in the 40's.

    Frankie's Da Bomb!

    What can you say about these classic movies, that really brought the horror genre to a new level, that hasn't already been said? Well, if you're looking for the films that define the monster genre, these are it. Though only bearing distant similarities to Mary Shelley's masterpiece, these films are the source of movie monster cliches for the next seventy-five years. Boris Karloff became a star from these films, and it's no wonder. Though 'Frankenstein' started it all, 'Bride' might be an even better film. Really, a great investment in movie history. There are so many classic scenes: the monster and the little girl; the monster and the blind man; the monster and his would-be bride; the monster and the windmill, and of course, Dr. Frankenstein's haunting refrain, which resonates to this day in the debate over cloning, biotechnology and stem cell research, 'It's alive, it's alive, it's alive!'

    Masterful Macabre Melodrama and Mayhem

    By now everyone should be familiar with Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's macabre tale of the doctor who created life by sewing together parts of dead bodies. That the movie 'Frankenstein' (1931) has very little to do with the rest of Shelley¿s novel is a moot point. James Whale's masterful direction remains one of the high water marks of cinema. The original story has Boris Karloff as the monster ¿ a brilliant and empathetic performance. After killing his master¿s henchman, Igor, the monster escapes to a nearby village where, confused and alone, he befriends a young girl who is unafraid of his hideous exterior. However, after showing great compassion in playing a game in which the two float rose petals down a lake, the monster, believing that the girl would enjoy floating as well, tosses her into the icy waters where she drowns. His confusion and sadness over the sudden loss of his only friend remains a truly heartbreaking moment in the film. Whale followed up his original with 'The Bride Of Frankenstein', a sequel almost as good as the original. In this film, Dr. Frankenstein creates a partner for his monster, the bird-like terrorized creature-ess (Elsa Lanchester), who, upon being given life, finds the monster so hideous that she chooses Dr. Frankenstein as her lover instead. This, of course, infuriates the monster who destroys them all. Sadly, the last three films in this series are B-pictures that do not capture either the essence or mood of the first two masterpieces. The original 1931 film looks very good for its age. Though age related artifacts exist they are not terribly distracting. There is also a considerable amount of film grain. The grain is more noticeable in 'Bride of Frankenstein' than the original. The last three films in the series are rendered with a marked improvement in image quality. In all cases, the gray scale is properly balanced with deep, solid blacks and nicely balanced contrast levels. There is a bit of edge enhancement and some pixelization but never anything that terribly distracts. The audio for all the films is mono. The original 1931 film exhibits slightly more hiss. Extras include two very concisely produced featurettes that discuss the making of the first two films, an audio commentary for the first two movies and theatrical trailers and production notes for all of the films. While the transfer quality is somewhat inconsistently rendered, this is by far the best that these films have ever look. Recommended!
