Yup - it's a great little film. Scared me to hell when I was a kid. The opening scenes are classic.
Guys great news on the special features for these sets. Check this out. http://dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=6492
Yes, this has started quite a debate. Just how are they going to get all those extras and five films on two discs? I'll believe this when I see it.
Actually I have an idea on how they can do it. Dracula is an easy one. Each disc could be double sided. So it would be possible to squueze the extras on. For example dracula and the spanish dacula could be on side onne. Draculas daughter could be on the back of disc one. Other than the main releases the only extras featured on the the double features was trailers. So it could be done. Plus if Im not mistaken the sales for the double features were not as high as they hoped for so putting these all together can boost the sales.
The discs are not double sided though.
Hell ya! is correct. These discs are not double sided. And you know what, even if they were, I'd hate them. I freaking hate double sided discs, I always cover them in fingerprints. It's a bad idea, imo.
Still, since these are not double-sided, I suspect this latest report is nonsense.
It should be possible to fit the movies onto the discs with extras.
For example the Dracula set could go like this:
D1: Dracula, Dracula (Spanish), extras
D2: Daughter, Son, House
D1: Frankenstein, Bride, extras
D2: Son, Ghost, House
D1: Wolf Man, extras
D2: WW of London, Frankesntein Meets, She-Wolf
We have to keep in mind that these are short movies, running only about seventy to seventy-five minutes. An RSDL DVD can hold about four hours of video.
D1: Frankenstein, Bride, extras
That's about the only one that wouldn't work, I guess. Both these discs had good extras, if I recall. With the comentaries and all, it seems unlikely.
ACcording to the adminstrator at DVDTimes:
The movies are only around 70-75mins long, but what I forgot to mention is they use double sided discs (1xDVD18 and 1xDVD15).
So I guess they are, unless he's wrong.
I'm hoping to the get the wolf of london double bill cheap on eBay after the news ets come out. HOUSE OF DRACULA I've not decided on yet, may see if there's a foreign release of it first in the near future. If it wasn't for the digipacks, I might get the DRACULA LEGACY, but all that and a ccardboard box for just one little film? nah.
I think the new packaging's a bit misleading too: BELA LUGOSI DRACULA LEGACY? He's only in one of them! etc...
Look at the pictures - how can they be double-sided discs?
Those are promo shots.
Anything is bound to change.
So - the features being added could change too - right?

Universal monster DVDs will have extras after all
Come on guys doesn't anyone want my original copies of the Universal Monster dvds?
And here are the specs, straight from Universal's website: http://homevideo.universalstudios.com/boxset.php?boxSetId=34588
Click on the individual packages for full features and the placement of the movies on each disc.
The Dracula one looks strange, and I wonder if there's a mistake in the listing. According to it, the first Dracula DVD will only contain "Dracula," while the second DVD will contain "Dracula (Spanish)," "Dracula's Daughter," "Son of Dracula," and "House of Dracula." I would think they would include the Spanish "Dracula" on the same DVD as "Dracula," since there should be room. Four movies on a single DVD is pushing it.
That has got to be a typo.I am curious as to the actual size of the mini bust's.
Full frame? That's shitty - does widescreen exist at all?
To the best of my knowledge Full Frame 1.33:1 is OAR for these.
Widescreen didn't come out until the 50s
