Editorial Reviews

"Dracula
The original classic starring Bela Lugosi is the signature adaptation of Bram Stoker’s story that defined the iconic look and frightening character of the famed vampire.

Frankenstein
An unforgettable masterpiece, Boris Karloff stars as the screen’s most tragic and iconic monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made.

The Bride of Frankenstein
In one of the most popular horror classics of all time, Boris Karloff reprises his role as the silver screen’s most misunderstood monster, who now longs for a mate.

Creature from the Black Lagoon
A hideous creature kidnaps the woman it loves, forcing scientists to hunt it all the way back into the depths from where it came in this iconic horror film."

IMPORTANT NOTE, ADDED JUNE 22, 2012: This review was originally posted to the Universal 100th Anniversary Classic Monsters DVD 4-pack that includes Dracula, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon. However, Amazon has seen fit (as they so often do) to ALSO post the reviews for this product on the listing for the SECOND Universal Monsters 4-pack, which comes out in the fall of 2012, and which does NOT contain these films, but four other classic monster films: WOLF MAN, INVISIBLE MAN, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and THE MUMMY. Please don't think that I placed it there myself, if that's where you happen to be reading it. Thanks.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE, ADDED DEC. 31, 2012: Due to Amazon's inexplicable policy of porting reviews from one product listing to other listings (regardless of whether the products are the same!), I'm unable to properly review the SECOND "Classic Monsters" 4 disc collection under it's own listing as my review of the FIRST set already appears there, and Amazon does not allow "multiple" reviews on what it perceives to be the same product. As such, both the first AND second Classic Monsters collections have the same 38 reviews (as I write this), nearly all of which should ONLY be attached to the product listing for the first set. Thus I've no choice but to pad this review out a bit further to encompass BOTH sets, I've opted to include details about the bonus features for each of the four discs in the second set (THE MUMMY, THE WOLF MAN, THE INVISIBLE MAN and THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA) underneath the product details for the four discs in the first set, as outlined further down this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome set. March 9, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What Amazon doesn't tell you is that the Spanish version is also included in the Dracula DVD. Nice extra. I watched them all, and the quality is good, sound is also very good. Some of the commentary is. I don't remember Tom Weaver commentint of the Creature DVD last time. I love to listen to the commentary. I love the fact that they're on separate disks. I only wish they were on Blu Ray. Should have included Wolfman or Wolfman Meets Frankenstein. For the 100th Anniversary, put out a classic Monster Blu Ray set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Universal Classic Monsters Spotlight Collection November 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection [Blu-ray] was too expensive, so I bought the DVD set. The product came in the mail today, and it arrived in great condition. It had 4 great movies for a great price. The movies included were, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, and Creature from the Black Lagoon. These are the 1999 DVD versions of the films, but the quality was pretty good for these older movies. I just watched Frankenstein on my Play Station 3, and it looked great. I know the picture is not as good as the Blu-ray set, but it still looked very impressive. I love all of these films, but Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein still remain my favorites(Frankenstein is probably the first horror movie I ever saw).Dracula is another one of my favorites. Bela Lugosi is classic as Dracula. Creature from the Black Lagoon was good, but not great. Over all,the quality is great, and you could watch these over and over again. And what more would you ask than that?

5.0 out of 5 stars When Horror Was Scary August 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
as the cliche' goes, they don't make 'em like they used to. that's not necessarily a tragedy when it comes to most movies, since every generation has it's geniuses, innovations, and viewpoints. but alas, there is one major exception. my apologies in advance if what i'm about to write makes me sound like a prude, but well, when it comes to this particular subject, damn it, i AM a prude!
it's easily the all-time tragedy of Cinema that horror in the fright sense of the word is dead. the Independent Filmmaking movement that began in the '60s (the "permissive society" in general, really) did many ideals a world of good, but it must be held accountable for enabling one horrendous miscarriage of justice. it's hard to say offhand whether it was simply an experiment gone wrong or if some sicko was genuinely trying to undermine the artistry of the classic DRACULA/FRANKENSTEIN type of movie, but either way it inevitably dawned on somebody: for about one 20th the budget, not to mention about one 50th the effort, they could just pour red syrup on everything in sight. to describe it as all downhill from there would be like saying "Charles Manson brainwashed people into killing for him? how gauche!!"
for my entire life characters like Dracula and Frankenstein's monster have been routinely written off as tame, Saturday morning cartoon level fair. there are people my age, even one or two my parents' age, who'd be sure i was pulling their leg if i were to point out that during the original run of DRACULA, it was considered so edgy that nurses were stationed at every theatre where it played, and it was equal parts publicity stunt and safety measure. but the good news is that i wasn't alone in appreciating them, however out-of-style they were.
