Very good movies! I had never seen these movies before. Not exactly what I was expecting at all. These are great classic horror films. I loved watching it unrestored in original black & white. As classic horror films, these are even better than many current horror films. Now a days horror films are getting to be all about special effects, violence, and gory blood scenes. With the classics it's mainly all about the plot & the story. TCM's presentation of these films was spectacular. I especially loved the commentary & interviews prior to the film. TCM picked the perfect time to show this double feature, one week before Halloween. I would recommend this double feature!

Fantastic to see these two classic films, digitally enhanced, on the big screen.
I am almost positive this was a once in a lifetime experience.
Thanks TCM/Fandango/Fathom Events!

It was awesome to see these 2 classics on the big screen. I hope Turner Classic Movies continues to do these special showings of old movies.

I loved seeing both movies on the big screen and cant wait to see more classics that way but, I was under the impression there were going to be interviews with Boris Karloffs Son, Bela Lugosi JR etc.. afterwards. Was there a misunderstanding on my part?

EXPERIENCING THE FILM IN FULL LARGE SCREEN REALITY CERTAINLY THROWS HOME VIEWING UNDER THE BUS, ESPECIALLY WHEN VIRTUALLY PRISTINE RESTORED PRINTS ARE ON VIEW.
DETAILS PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN ON THE SMALL SCREEN AMPLIFIED THE PLEASURE; TEXTURES OF THE SCENERY, THE SKULL USED AS A PENCIL HOLDER IN THE WATCHTOWER AND THE RARE GOOF-UP (THE MONSTER'S UNREVERSED IMAGE IN THE WATER - SCAR ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HEAD SHOULD HAVE REFLECTED ON THE RIGHT SIDE) ARE ADDED VALUE.
SOME SPLICE CUTS IN BOTH FILMS WERE CAREFULLY, BUT NOT COMPLETELY, WHICH WOULD EVADE ALL BUT THE SHARP-EYED.
ONE OF THE FUN THINGS VIEWING BOTH FILMS IN TANDEM. THE ROLE REVERSAL BETWEEN THE MONSTER AND FRANKENSTEIN IN THE "SIT" SITUATION A REVELATION. ALSO , AND I HAD TO CHECK TO BELIEVE MY EYES, IS THAT IN "BRIDE" THE MONSTER WAS TALKING SOLEY TO ELIZABETH WHEN HE SAID 'GO.' THOUGH HENRY AND SHE EXITED THE TOWER THE LAST INTERIOR SHOT SHOWS HENRY AGAINST THE LEFT WALL.
A WHALE OF A PRESENTATION
