5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Universal, 1 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection [Blu-ray] [1931] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Just received the Universal Monsters on Blu-ray and I am very pleased with the results. Creature is presented in 1.85:1 for the first time. Dracula looks very good (but still lots of grain), and yet in the Spanish version there is hardly any grain at all. Hard to believe they were shot at the same time as each other. But no matter what, the Blu-ray brings out things that you never noticed before. And the sound is truly amazing. Top marks for this box set.

So happy to hear that -thanks. Can't WAIT to see 'Creature' and 'Wolfman' not to mention read the booklet and frame the postcards :)

There is grain on Dracula because the original negative doesn't exist anymore so they had to use the next best thing, a lavender nitrate copy. The Spanish Dracula exists though which would explain the difference.

My box arrived yesterday and my son and I began our monster-a-day-a-thon tonight. I've never seen 'Dracula' look so beautiful. Very, VERY pleased with this collection, just gorgeous :)

I do not know how you can say that the Spanish language version of Dracula has no grain, when Universal had to obtain the third reel from an outside source and it is really BAD, extremely grainy and full of scratches and white spots.

You answered both of my questions about this UK release in one fell swoop: Drácula is included and Creature is widescreen. Many thanks!
