BUILDING A COLLECTION OF MONSTER MOVIES
« on: September 09, 2021, 08:36:56 PM »
 
BUILDING A CLASSIC HORROR COLLECTION

With my car nearly paid off, I'll be getting a little more money into my wallet. It was only about a month ago that I had the idea of collecting the classics from the 1920's to the early 1960's; primarily on a DVD or Blu-Ray format. Two have been stricken off this list so far, and more are to come.

Here's a bunch of lists I did. They are mostly by studio and chronological order, but I did the Universals a bit differently. I think I should add a list of German horror and sci-fi.

Collection Log. Sept. 13, 2021.

Attained the Dracula and Frankenstein Legacy Collections by mail this morning; received Bride of the Monster three days ago. The sets added a total of eleven movies, not counting the duplicates of House of Dracula, House of Frankenstein, and Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

The forum does not allow me to post images of what I've attained, nor will it allow me to upload my own avatars and I have no interest in using current-day parasites to represent me.

UPDATE: Thanks for the assist, Mike. I understand how now.

You got it!  :)

I see you have Alpha's "Nosferatu". You might want to check out Kino's release. (It's 8 bucks cheaper at amazon than getting it from Kino.)

Funny thing is that I owned the Alpha version for 18 years. It’s the oldest in this collection, in both acquisition and age. Not bad if you mute it (the only thing you’d miss is a LAUGHABLE soundtrack), but I’m holding off on future purchases until my finances start to right themselves.

As per Mike’s suggestion, I upgraded NOSFERATU. However, certain sources online said not to get the KINO release, so I went looking for the version whose clips were the first I had seen of the film. This is actually the version whose scenes I’d first saw nearly twenty years ago, and was disappointed that the Alpha Video release was a different version. Got it cheap, too, less than $10.



For the time being, I am putting the collection on sabbatical, as I am currently… not in fine fettle in terms of finances.


EDIT: Now comes the question of the Alpha Video copy. Should I give it to a friend (who has his own collection) of hang onto it? Does it seem a bit redundant to have two copies of the same film?

The IMAGE DVD is a good one. Certainly much better than the ALPHA.  I still like the KINO for it's new recording of the original German score, it's original color tinting and all of the DVD extras!  :)
