I got a Creature from the Black Lagoon standalone Blu-Ray, and oh my gosh the 3D is wonderful.     :)  It's been twenty-five years since I saw it in 3D, and I had to go to special screening to see it.  I had been waiting for a 3D home video release for so long!
Beautiful moving, shifting colors!

Yeah "The Creature" 3-D comes with Universal Coffin box set---it's pretty awesome.

Just ordered triple feature dvd: "Alligator People," "Lake Placid," and "Swamp Thing."

I'm pretty psyched.

 Hey, how was the picture quality on the BR? The copy I have on DVD looks like a bad VHS.

Hey, guys

I haven't had a chance to look at the blueray yet, but according to the box "Dan Curtis' Dracula has been transferred and restored in 2K High Definition from the original 35mm camera negative."

Hopefully I'll watch it this weekend and let you know how it looks.

I looked it up. It was "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" that was shot on video tape.

I think they're almost all OOP, so I hope you (don't get) burned by the "collector prices"!  :(
