All time classics a must see on the big screen tv does not do these universal horror films justice, Great actors and actresses from the black and white error and silver screen are terrific. Scenery and special effects and makeup a+++ for its time.

This is one of those movies that everyone has to see at least once in their lives. It had beed a while and I loved it again.

No need to talk about these classics from a critical perspective. The joy of seeing them on the big screen was intense and wonderful. The downside of the experience was a thirty minute delay in show start (a half hour staring at a blank screen) and three old chicks that wouldn't shut up (you're not at home and nobody cares what you have to say). Thanks for bringing these James Whale treats back for Halloween - let's see more of the Universal Monsters back on the big screen!

"Firstly something has be said about paying 12 bucks to go see two Film's more than 80 years old! Think about the average pay for a Man in 1930.. 27.00 a Month.. so 12.00 would have gone much further than seeing both of these classics then.
Having said that historically speaking, James Whale directs all the way up to the all-time Classic Monster Movies of all time list. Colin Clive (Doctor Frankenstein) is drawn to meddle in things that man should leave alone. That is robbing grave yards, body snatching so he could "make a artifical Human being". Universal didn't want a talking Monster but got talked into it for the sequel. The Classic Monster Film line of all time; "HATE LIVING - LOVE DEATH! spoken by Karloff in The Bride. But truely the First Film is timeless in its protrayal of Village Vigiliantism, torch bearing wild-men stalking to hunt down the murderous Monster is unforgettable.
Screening both Films in their original aspect ratio for myself was an grand experience!

THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE MOVIES. TOOK TEENAGE GRANDDAUGHTER WITH US. SHE ENJOYED THEM ALSO.
BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE I SAW FRANK ON THE BIG SCREEN...NEVER SAW HIS "BRIDE".
THE MAKE-UP WAS SO INTERESTING TO SEE...DISAPPOINTED MRS. FRANK WASN'T IN HER MOVIE MUCH.
LIKED THE PRE-SHOW INTERVIEWS WITH BELA LUGOSI'S SON AND BORIS KARLOFF'S DAUGHTER. IF I REMEMBER, BELA LUGOSI WAS A MATINEE IDOL BEFORE HE CAME TO THE USA TO MAKE FILMS.
REALLY LIKED THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THESE AGAIN ON THE BIG SCREEN AT REASONABLE PRICES.
RATED 4 STARS FOR FRANK...AND 3 FOR MRS. FRANK
