Descripción del producto
Classic horror starring Peter Cushing. A young teacher on her way to a position in Transylvania helps a young man escape the shackles his mother has put on him. In doing so she innocently unleashes the horrors of the undead once again on the populace, including those at her school for ladies. Luckily for some, Dr Van Helsing (Cushing) is already on his way.
The Making of The Brides of Dracula Narrated by Edward de Souza and featuring interviews with Yvonne Monlaur, Jimmy Sangster, Hugh Harlow, Pauline Harlow, Don Mingaye, Margaret Robinson and Tony Hinds

The Brides of Dracula Theatrical Trailer
- Universal has remastered this to the correct 16x9 2:1 LB of the original US release.
Top class Hammer movie. Peter Cushing's second outing as Van Helsing and David Peel's only vampire role. One of the most beautifully photographed movies ever - Jack Asher at his best and director Terence Fisher in top form. If the bat is a little clunky by modern effects standards, no worry for there is plenty to enjoy here. Great performances from Cushing and Peel, as mentioned, but also watch out for the acting duel between vetrans Freda Jackson and Martita Hunt; each gives a ripe performance and both are highly memorable. Other performances to look out for are from scene- stealing Miles Malleson as the hypochondriac Dr Tobler and Andree Melly who gave one of the 60's classic vampire images to the screen. Michael Ripper is also there for fans, this time as the scared coach driver. Cushing's authoratative Van Helsing carries the movie and David Peel's Baron Meinster is an excellent vampire foe - clipped Oxford English, red eyes and hissing vampire attacks. The burning windmill finale was lifted to conclude Tim Burton's SLEEPY HOLLOW which was a tribute to Hammer Films. Pure escapism - enjoy! --maxgol

I am a U.S. customer and I use either my Sony Playstation 3 or Playstation 4 to watch Blu-Ray movies because they play Blu-Rays from all regions, and this Region 2 Blu-Ray is no exception.
However, other U.S. Blu-Ray players (even those made by Sony!) likely will NOT play this disc.
Also, while the Region 2 Blu-Ray plays perfectly in my U.S. Playstations, the included Region 2 DVD does NOT work.
I don't know if that is a universal problem with region-locked DVDs, or what, but be warned that if you were thinking of buying this 2-pack for the DVD, and you are in the U.S., you may not be able to actually play the DVD.
I won't bother reviewing the picture - you either love it or you don't. It happens to be my favorite Hammer picture of them all. (Sorry, and RIP, Chris Lee.)
That said, I grew up watching Brides of Dracula on TV, in 4:3 with washed out colors (as everything was back then), and the first time I saw this on DVD in a previous release, I thought it was nice and it did the job, but this Blu-Ray absolutely takes the cake.
This re-mastered version is bar-none the best looking I have ever seen, and I recommend it above all other releases.
While it is true that there is noticeable "grain" (I am not a videophile so I don't know if that is technically the correct term for what I am trying to describe...) in some shots (mostly in the actor's faces...), this is still, overall, the best-looking I have ever seen this movie.
Other reviews of this release mentioned cropping at the top of the picture, but I didn't notice anything wrong while watching it.
I think it is important to remember that this picture (like all old movies) cannot compete with a modern movie shot on modern equipment in full high definition from the get go, and even considering that Hammer apparently shot this picture on half-frames of film to save money (thus worsening the quality of the source material even further), I am still satisfied with how it looks compared to other releases of this picture in other formats.
Finally, this release also includes a (apparently British) documentary I had never seen, "The Making of The Brides of Dracula", featuring interesting interviews with many of the persons involved with Hammer Studios and Brides, as well as the actress who played Marianne, Yvonne Montaur. The documentary is excellent!
If you are a Brides of Dracula, or Hammer, fan this should definitely be in your collection!
The innocent bride-to-be also gave a wonderful performance. There is even a little humourous moment at the Lang school when
our vampire Baron back-handedly compliments the headmaster of the school (of which he and his wife are tenants.). The headmistress also delivers a couple of good one-liners.
Great Hammer flick. I watch this one a lot! I highly recommend it!!
