The 1930s live on!

Awesome experience. My Mom and I went. My parents raised us on old horror movies with popcorn. I didn't think I'd ever get the chance to see iconic films from the golden days of Hollywood on the silver screen. It was a great time with my Mom watching films we love in a way we've never seen them before. Give us more!!! They don't make films like they used to. I am a freelance graphic designer and can appreciate Avatar-like and the newer gore-riffic movies, but real effects, good make-ups, the right light, and talented actors appeal more to me. That is part of the draw of these older films. The other part? They're classic. They are the foundation of Hollywood, they're classy, they make me laugh in appreciation, they are the living history of a world I grew up admiring and longing to be a part of. Give us more!

Both movies are classic, old, suspenseful horror movies. They are cinematic genious. The scenery in Frankenstein is worth noting. Music score is also really interesting - not what you would expect in a horror movie. You can tell they're old movies because some of the scenes are really jumpy - created pre-motionstabilization. More humor in the Bride. I'm glad we went because you don't get that kind of impact on the small screen. Also, screaming at the women's audition must have been a requirement...

Frankenstein double Feature

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.

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.
