It is always a special experience to see a movie on a big screen. I have viewed Both of these films
too many times to count. They are like old friends. Seeing them on the big screen was an entirely different experience. The spinning eyes opening title sequence, which seems quaint and out of place on a TV screen, when viewed in a dark theatre, on a big screen, has a dizzying disorienting effect making the whole room spin and making the credits an effort to read and strangely more significant. In a theatre you are already disoriented when you enter the graveyard. It is a great way to set the tone. Though choppy a at points, meandering the film is always imeadiate and engaging . The weakest part of the first film is the abrupt ending. This of course helps the begining of "The Bride Of Frankenstein" where Mary Shelly explains that the story is not over. It is interesting that seemingly minor scenes have much more importance in a theatre. Any old film you love should be view in a theatre.
It was great to see this classic horror as a new print on a big screen. The story makes more sense
than both of the remakes. The movie is visually great and the performances are good. The art direction is wonderfully imaginative ant the cinematography is especially good for the era. "The Island Of Lost Souls" Is one of a set of movie made by Paramount Pictures that was later purchased by Universal Pictures. Universal seems to have no idea the fan base these older movies has. They really should release them on DVD.
