The Packaging material is awful doesn't protect my items at all received damaged box sets cracks and dings on it please use better shipping boxes or you are going to lose loyal customers that's my advise to Zavi shipping material.

Looks brilliant.

I have only managed to watch Dracula - it looks brilliant. Only issue is the sound, it sounds perfect but there is a slight static noise over the top which can be distracting during the quiet periods. The product itself, is great! Especially the movie poster cards that come along with it. A well designed product for Monster fans! The design on the discs are also a nice feature. Picked this up for a steal on Black Friday, bought a couple products of Zavvi now and they are great!

Unmissable for monster lovers

5

This is a great box for an unbeatable price. The 8 films look great on Blu-ray; a lot better than their dvd versions. Even though some are them are more than 75 (!) years old, the upgrade in image quality warrants a purchase on Blu-ray. On top of that, the 3D version of 'Creature from the Black Lagoon' in this collection looks amazing, it's almost reason enough by itself to purchase this great collection. The box also contains a nice 48 page booklet with pictures and info, as well as 8 postcards.

Superb

5

8 classic movies on blu-ray for only €19 in the Zavvi clearance sale, what a price. Each movie was meticulously restored, video and audio. Critics mentioned how the movies had not looked that good even when released theatrically in the 1930's. Any horror fans dream. This boxset takes pride and place in my collection.

I was very impressed with the picture quality of the movies in this set. I can say with confidence that the image on my 58" HDTV is sharper and clearer than anything that was shown in the theaters when these titles were released. If you are a fan of the genre, this set is for you.

MONSTERS

It's amazing to watch these 8 cult movies completely restored. Universal has made an impressive work. Legends of terror and cinema history to watch as they looked the day of the premiere.

"monster fun "

4

I was very pleased with the Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection, cheap compared to other websites the movies themselves look amazing considering their age. So far, I have have watched " the mummy" and "dracula" and whilst not scary they are good fun and well made! There are some nice extras include lobby cards and a booklet, the actual discs are well protected in a firm gatefold sleeve. But the outer casing is a bit flimsy. I am playing them on my ps3 through my pioneer kuro TV coupled with my bose cinemate they do indeed look and sound better than ever so I will be recommending this as a definite purchase for all you movie buffs out there!
