    One of the most popular horror classics of all time and an acclaimed sequel to the original Frankenstein. The legendary Boris Karloff reprises his role as the screen's most understood monster who now longs for a mate of his own. Colin Clive is back as the overly ambitious Dr. Frankenstein, who creates the ill-faed bride (Elsa Lanchester). Directed by the original's James Whale (hislast horror film) and featuring a haunting musical score, The Bride of Frankenstein ranks as one of the finest films not only of the genre, but for all time.

    This film works on all levels.

    And while I do think this sequel is an even better movie in many ways, they actually work best taken together, as one big story told in two parts.
    Craig Edwards
    "Bride of Frankenstein" is the greatest horror film ever made, and one of the best films produced in any genre.

    Format: DVD Verified Purchase
    I am one of the legion of admirers who believe that this film represents the apex of both James Whale's directorial career and Universal Studios' first cycle of monster movies. Cleverly scripted, flawlessly acted, wittily directed, and hauntingly scored, it's a marvel of a movie on many levels; it works as a horror film, a satire, a black comedy, a social commentary -- even as a romantic melodrama -- depending on your individual interpretation.
    It's a real pity, then, that this rich cinematic treasure has received such a disappointing transfer to the DVD format. After experiencing the sharply focused, pristine prints presented on Universal's DVD releases of "Frankenstein" and "The Mummy", my expectations for "Bride" were enthusiastically high. What a letdown! The film is grainy, with distractingly poor contrast -- the actors appear to have microcrobes running across their faces, like amoeba that you might observe under a microscope. And there were a couple of pops and jumps inherent in the source material that I don't recall having seen on the VHS tape release of this film.
    The extras are the only features that keep this disc from being a complete fiasco. The poster and still archive is remarkable, and the "making of" featurette is informative and enjoyable. The theatrical trailer is the one used for the film's Realart re-release and not the Universal original. I strongly suspect (and hope) there will some day be a "restored" edition of this movie available. Unless you just can't wait to add this title to your DVD collection, I have to regretfully advise that until such an improved version comes along, you spend your hard-earned pennies on an alternate selection.

    As mentioned by many others, the film, commentary, documentary etc are all excellent. No need to repeat. But a major flaw in the film transfer itself is the amount of information removed at the top. The tops of heads are chopped and the glowing crudifix at the climax of the blind hermit scene is cropped so much you cannot tell it is a cross. I have compared the laser and vhs copies of this film to the dvd. The laser and vhs crop information from the bottom, a FAR better choice. I consider the cropping on the dvd so bad as to make the film almost unwatchable. I'll be keeping my laserdisc and videotape.

    Format: DVD
    I was waiting with great anticipation the release of The Bride of Frankenstein DVD. I ,like many others, consider this movie to be the greatest horror film of all time. I already own the movie on VHS but I couldn't wait to see the sparkling, crystal clear picture that I know the DVD format can deliver. Unfortunately, Universal decided to dig up the worst print they could find to put on DVD.
    The worst thing about it is the horrible grainy look of the film. There are so many tiny little black dots on the picture that it is almost impossible to concentrate on the actors. It is a terrible looking picture. And somehow or other they have managed to mess up the framing of the picture even though it is a 1.33:1 image. You only get to see about 85% of the picture compared to the VHS. Universal....how could you?
    The extras on the DVD are quite good but it's the movie that counts! Other titles in the series of classic Universal horror movies are better but none of them so far are what true DVD enthusiasts and real movie fans want to see. I really hope that Universal quickly decides to remaster The Bride of Frankenstein DVD and then allows us poor souls to exchange our current copies for a new one.

    Format: DVD
    _Frankenstein -- The Legacy Collection_ currently has the better DVD version of _Bride of Frankenstein_. The original _Bride of Frankenstein_ is out of print, but it has been replaced with a much better version.

    Using two DVD players, I loaded up both the original _Bride of Frankenstein_ and the new version from the Legacy Collection and then switched between them. Unlike the original version, the Legacy _Bride of Frankenstein_ image is centered, and in most scenes, contains approximately 20% more picture information than the original, because the edges of the picture are no longer cut off. The original version is missing a lot picture information due to its being off center and magnified.

    The original _Bride of Frankenstein_ picture is virtually unacceptable due to its poor video quality. Although the picture quality of the original version is sharper than the new one, this sharpness is accompanied by excess video noise, snow and other distracting artifacts. Now, after being run through a video sanitizer, the Legacy version of _Bride of Frankenstein_ has a highly-polished, "Citizen Kane" look. The new image is now virtually free of distracting artifacts, but at the expense of some picture sharpness. Black level, on the other hand, is excellent.

    The audio level of the Legacy _Bride of Frankenstein_ is much lower than that of the original version. This doesn't seem to present a problem, but it will be necessary to turn up the volume quite a bit more on the new DVD. The sound quality of the two versions seems to be about the same, once the volume is equalized.

    The main attraction of the Legacy _Bride of Frankenstein_ is its grab bag price. While the original _Bride of Frankenstein_ listed for $29.
