LOG: 5-26-2022

After one incident where I had mistakenly attained a European release of this film, I now have an NTSC copy of this classic piece of Woodwork. It's part horror movie, part documentary, 50% stock footage, and unintentionally hilarious. It's 1953's Glen or Glenda?.

Quick question. Are the Universal Horror Collections any good? With these, I can knock out four entries apiece.

Are the Universal Horror Collections any good?

You must get Vol. 1. It has the '30s Karloff/Lugosi classics "The Black Cat", "The Raven" and "The Invisible Ray".

If you're a die-hard Universal fan, you'll want them all, but they are "B" movies and one viewing is often enough for the casual fan. There's still some semi-classics scattered throughout, like "Man Made Monster" and "The Mad Ghoul".

Nothing playing with the settings won’t fix. ;)

UPDATE: 9.22.22

With the arrival of my copy of THE INVISIBLE MAN COMPLETE LEGACY COLLECTION, the biggest names on the list are more or less taken care of. Time to debate the next step: Ed Wood’s REVENGE OF THE DEAD or UNIVERSAL HORROR COLLECTION VOL. 1?

Congrats on finishing the Legacy sets! The UNIVERSAL HORROR COLLECTION VOL. 1 has 3 must see classics!

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.
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?

Kino's 2011 releases are lesser in quality, but their 2002 DVD is worth a buy: https://www.amazon.com/Nosferatu/dp/B00006JDSI

As for it being redundant, I wouldn't say that since most PD releases are the 60 or so minute long Atlas US version which (obviously) differs from the uncut 90 or so minute long original. Not to mention all the various different scores a lot of releases have (from James Bernard to Type O Negative).

UPDATE 12.25.2022

Merry Christmas! Guess who got UNIVERSAL HORROR COLLECTION Vols. 1 & 4 today?

Can mark roughly another 10% off the list with…

HOUSE OF HORRORS
THE CLIMAX
BLACK FRIDAY
NIGHT KEY
NIGHT MONSTER
THE BLACK CAT
THE RAVEN
THE INVISIBLE RAY (I’ve been told that Bela was great as Karloff’s sidekick!)

Nice! You'll love V1. Three classics (and 1 not so classic). I wouldn't cll Bela a "sidekick" in any of those movies, in fact he's the star of "The Raven".

V4 is good, too! "Night Monster" is very good, and "House of Horrors" has Rondo.  :)
