I have seen both of these movies over a hundred times since I first saw them on tv on Shock Theater as a child, but it was great to see them on the big screen. I hope more of the classic Universal monster movies are coming our way on TCM Presents.

Works better as a big screen double feature

I'd already seen both movies many times on either TV or DVD, but they gain a lot by being presented on the big screen, as per original intent, and as a double feature. Details (like the Monster's tears, twice, in Bride) that I'd either overlooked or forgotten in the past seemed to leap out at last night's viewing. Bride is the better movie, but it's craft as a sequel is easier to appreciate in a double feature presentation.

It was so amazing to see these movies as they should be seen and not on a television screen no matter how big. It was like seeing the movies for the first time. They were wonderful and brought back those happy carefree days when movies had class and the horror was not gratuitous and full of blood and over the top violence. The acting was top notch and I hate to sound trite but they just don't and can't make them like that anymore. What a shame.

I hadn't seen an older movie like this on the big screen, so i wasn't sure what to expect. I absolutely loved it!! Now I want to see more. Great job TCM!
