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.

\What hit me the most was the amazing makeup and the awesome performance of Boris Karloff. It was so much fun seeing it with a large audience and hear them respond to what was going on in the movie. I'm so gad I got to see this on a big screen at last. Hoping to hear this continues and doesn't just end with To Kill A Mockingbird next month (which I plan on going to see). This is how these classics need to be seen!

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

I loved seeing both movies on the big screen and cant wait to see more classics that way but, I was under the impression there were going to be interviews with Boris Karloffs Son, Bela Lugosi JR etc.. afterwards. Was there a misunderstanding on my part?

"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!
