Works better as a big screen double feature

By still_dvs

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.

Frankenstein/Bride Of Frankenstein

I have never seen either of these movies in their entirety. Only snippets here and there on TV. When it was to be featured on the big screen I opted to go see it as it was meant to be seen so long ago. On the big screen. I have to say that I enjoyed it far far more than if I was to watch it on the small screen. I was also initially so enthused about the two movies that I invited a friend to join my wife and I. It was one of the highlights we experienced in the waning months of this year. Joel Tavera

Franken and Bride

Thoroughly enjoyed these two films together, as I had never seen either one on the big screen. The set designs were amazing and the lighting was superb! There was, for me and my movie partner, a feeling of sympathy for the monster, in both films. And the end line in Bride, "You stay; we belong dead." , really struck a chord with both of us. This was the 4th TCM Fathom Event presentation we've attended, and will certainly attend more! Thank you for allowing us the chance to enjoy these old classics they way they should be enjoyed; on the Big Screen!!

I enjoyed these films so much. Although I've seen them many times in my life, to see them on the big screen was such a treat for me!

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.
