    FRANKENSTEIN Complete Legacy Collection BD

    These movies look brand new on blu-ray! Well worth the upgrade over my DVD set. I already own the Classic Monsters BD set which has 2 of these titles and the original The Wolf-Man in that collection. This set gives me the rest of Frankenstein as well as most of The Wolf-Man films too (missing only Werewolf of London). Had I'd gone the other way and chose The Wolf-Man Legacy, I would've been missing Son Of and Ghost Of Frankenstein.....so this was the better choice for now. No matter which way you go with these sets, you can't go wrong really. The quality is outstanding for films of this age as they look like they were made yesterday. I'm still impressed....and you will be too. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Classics Restored!

    Frankenstein (1931) and Bride of Frankenstein had their high definition debut several years ago. While they are included on this set, the real meat is in the sequels (Son of Frankenstein, Ghost of Frankenstein, House of Frankenstein, and House of Dracula). All of the sequels have been remastered. All look really good with the updated transfers. Son of Frankenstein (1939) is here with additional footage that has not been seen on home video. The added definition really makes the original photography shine and creates a great viewing experience. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein is included on this set as well.

    This collection is essential for any fan of classic Universal horror. Every classic Frankenstein movie appearance is here along with a lot of bonus features for the original 1931 film, The Bride of Frankenstein, and Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein. The A/V quality of the Blu-ray set is very impressive for how old these films are. Keep these Legacy Collections coming Universal!

    Excellent Blu-ray set all derived from 4K Restorations of Universal Pictures 8-Classic Frankenstein motion pictures from 1931-to-1948. This is a dream set to anyone who loves the Classic Monster movies. It took me years as a kid watching Shock Theater in order to finally see all of these films. They look fantasic here. Worth every penny.

    I used to work at a video store and have always been a movie geek. Normally I try to stay away from double purchases but I had to get this because I didn't have the other Frankenstein movies and the Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein which is a classic. Right now I'm not using the best TV but from what I can tell they look great and great extras too.

    Great picture & sound quality. If you already have the Universal Monsters box set from a few years ago, you already have 2 of the titles from this set - there is no difference. Those are Bride of Frankenstein & Frankenstein. If you're a classic Universal Monsters fan, this is the expansion set to buy.

    The classic is still the best

    I've seen Frankenstein in many different variations. I've always been impressed with what new writer's have done in the story's interpretation over the years. But after revisting this classic franchise for Halloween it became clear to me, no other version is anywhere near as good.

    Of all of the new Legacy Collections, the Frankenstein Collection is the one to buy. I purchased all of the core Universal Monster movies on Blu ray the year before and this set included all of the movies I was missing (wanted).
