We had such an enjoyable time seeing the double feature of Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein. The picture quality was outstanding, as well as the sound. Considering they're roughly 80 year old films, nothing beats seeing them on the big screen. I hope they offer more classic horror in this format. And the interviews just added to the evening's fun.

The pre show trivia was only 3 questions and they never mentioned Frankenstein at all.
There was a 5-6 second scene cut out from Frankenstein. It showed the monster pushing the little girl Maria down into the water......What gives? The remastering could have been a bit better.

Both Movies are a must see for Classic Horror Movie buffs like myself. I can see how Movies like these would have scarred the hell out of crowds back when they were made. I give both Classics Four ****

I saw both features while at a conference in Denver, Co. It was great to see a horror movie without blood and guts. Some scenes were very funny. Especially enjoyed the interviews before the films.

If you are a horror/terror movie fan, these two pictures are a MUST see. I saw both of them as a kid some 60 years ago (the theater audience was obviously much older than the average movie audience). As an adult this time I could not only appreciate the technical qualities of both films but the the transition in the Monster's character from a feral being in " Frankenstein"to a humanized man, searching love and acceptance in "The Bride of Frankenstein," was truly moving.The profuse used of irony and tragic reversal in "The Bride's" story gave it a substance the "Frankenstein" movie lacked altho I think both movies generated quite a bit of empathy for the "monster" and some revulsion towards his creator. Is this a parable about the relationship between God and man or, as some critics have argued, a critique of modern science an the possibility that some of its best intentions may go astray? Both movies deal with both issues and offer a provocative resolution to today's audiences.
