Interesting.

It's really quite striking.  The whole process was well done here.

It may be "blasphemous" to say it, but I wouldn't mind seeing colorized versions (this well done) of all the films.  I would still probably prefer the originals, but it would be cool to see different versions.  I also wouldn't mind authentic musical scores added to Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Mummy, not the Glass score, but something akin to what appears in the Svengoolie version of Dracula.  The movies would show their age less. 

I know people find Frankenstein less aged than Dracula, but I think the opposite is true.  Dracula looks quite sleek.  Frankenstein, and its odd jump cuts and close-ups, feels more antiquated.  Scores and color would be a good way of sprucing up the pacing in Dracula and the unusual editing of Frankenstein.
