Universal Legacy Classics
The Complete collection
When I saw the Review a classic Monster movie, I almost fell over. For one: I love old black and white horror movies even just mysteries. I think the black & white adds to the creepy & suspenseful ambiance of the movies. and 2 I almost could not decide which to review!
I looked through the movies that were and being as I've seen (I think) all of the Universal Studios Legacy collection: Dracula starring Bela Lugosi, The Wolfman's Lon Chaney Jr. & Boris Karloff in The Mummy as well as Frankenstein and I forget who played the Creature from the Black Lagoon at one time or another. I thought maybe one of those then I also saw Carnival of Souls, Nosferatu (though may have been the new one), House on Haunted Hill with Vincent Price, The Raven Starring Boris Karloff & Bela Lugosi and I may have seen the Bride of Frankenstein long ago But I'm not sure at all if I've seen The Invisible man or The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Ultimately I came to the conclusion to review Dracula, as best I can (being it's been awhile) and that I love Dracula, Vampires and Bela Lugosi
So I decided to go with Reviewing Dracula, though I'm not sure if it was the 75th Anniversary edition. My Favorite one is with Bela Lugosi in it. I had read somewhere that it does not really go along with the book, and so I had rented it again when I heard about this. Upon watching it, there are parts or characters that have been changed in the transition. I think one of Lucy's suitors were changed or just missing. Regardless of the flaws of it, to me Bela Lugosi is the best Dracula, he gave the vampire personality and for some of us is the first person we think of when Dracula and Movie are in the same sentence. I think Vincent Price then Christopher Lee are 2nd & 3rd best though I may have to rewach their versions of Dracula and vampire movies. After watching I was a little disappointed as it wasn't what I had originally remembered (oh and I watched it on Dracula Day which just happens to also be Bela Lugosi's birthday!)
Thanks to this review I think I'm going to have to post the movies from that list into my rental 'Q'
The Universal Pictures Classic Horror collection, You can also purchase them as a boxset as well
I haevn't seen these in so long I don't know if I can write reviews for them. Though I do have a book called 'A pictorial history of Horror Movies' that maybe i can include a few facts for them instead.
I haven't seen this in so long all I can remember is the part where the little girl comes across Frankenstein's monster and I think hands him a flower (though the flower part may be getting confused with a certain movie called Monster Squad)
