    You haven't scored the disc...I take it it's a straight 10 all round then...
    Oh, and as promised, you get the dog and kids back once you've done the Dracula discs, OK...;) :D

    Can't believe that Universal are giving such short shrift to these movies for their R2 releases.

    Having just received my R1 "Monster Legacy" collection, I must say I am bowled over by the whole package - lavish is putting it mildly. Not only is the overall gift set with thee three polystone busts beautifully presented, but the three individual collections for "Frankenstein", "Dracula" and "The Wolf Man" are exquisitely packaged too.

    Each one comes a simulation of a hardback book with a pic of each character on the cover. Each then slides into a slipcase with gold embossed writing and a perspex window containing some artwork, which when the disc case is slipped in, overlays the pics on the disc covers to give a 3D-ish effect.

    The three busts are produced exclusively for this set by a memorabilia company that specialise in these limited edition busts of movie, TV and comic book characters. Similar busts to these are on the 'net retailing at around $40-$50 each.

    All this and 14 movies plus extras, and all for £33 delivered. Quite how Universal have managed this at the price is beyond me.

    And customs didn't touch it either! :smashin:

    I agree. I just finished watching Son of Frankenstein (with Basil Rathbone as Frankenstein's heir, Bela Lugosi as Igor, and Karloff as the monster), and it's just terrific. Lugosi is just great in this one, stealing every scene he's in.

    "They hanged me once." (taps the bone jutting out of his neck) And that's just a bonus film.

    I'm glad I plunked down for the R1 release instead of waiting. The whole box sits on top of my DVD rack and looks just great. I'm going to force my flatmates to watch one a night starting in mid-October. (finishing off on Halloween) :thumbsup:

    On topic, I'll save reading your review until I watch Wolfman again. It's been so long, I've forgotten most of it.
