2.0 out of 5 stars sound problem, 15 Nov 2012
Great picture restoration marred by a very poor soundtrack which is worse than the soundtracks on all other DVD versions and detracts greatly from the overall viewing experience

2.0 out of 5 stars 4:3 inferior edition, 17 Oct 2007
What an outrage. This company has released this title and Evil of Frankenstein as a 4:3 non amorphic release. Tho' still nice print quality, information has been lost at the sides of the picture. The films were released last year as part of the Universal R1 boxset as very nice anamorphic 16:9 transfers. However, many people have had problems with these double sided DVds not playing so it was heaven sent when we heard news that these two films were coming to R2. My advice is if you want R2 to purchase the German Koch media releases - these are anamorphic like the R1 releases and play in english (without subtitles) and German - currently available are Brides and the Curse of the Werewolf. Interestingly these British editions falsely claim on the back 'never been released before!'

3.0 out of 5 stars missing credits, 21 Feb 2006
Just got my copy of the ultimate edition since my special edition became corrupted by that yellowing/cloudy artefact on the disc. It seems a very good transfer but the beginning of the credits are missing (principal actors and film title) - the picture is there but the actual credit writing doesn't appear over it. I've noticed on the net comments that this occurred with the Scandanavian version. Not sure what this means - whether we return it and wait till Sony/MGM get it right, or whether we're lumbered with the fault. It seems this title is the kiss of death on DVD for MGM. I'm writing this 2 days after its release and so far I can see no other mention of this fault on the net. My advice is to hang on and see what develps before purchasing in case we have to return the discs like last time.
