Brides Of Dracula 85 min.
Phantom Of The Opera 84 min.
Curse Of The Werewolf 91 min.
Paranoic 80 min.
Night Creatures 81 min.
Kiss of the Vampire 88 min.
Nightmare 83 min
The Evil of Frankenstein 84 min.
a dual layer disc can hold four hours comfortably.
four dual layer sides = 8 films with plenty of bit space to spare.
and these aren't getting DTS or 5.1 tracks i would assume.
i don't really expect any problems here.
as far as individual cases go- i greatly prefer the asthetics of the original Universal Monaster discs utilizing the orignal ad art. compared to those, i find the legacy boxes dreary and boring- however, i'm rapidly running out of room to store things, and given the ridiculous sub-alpha price point per film here, i can't complain at at all
this is a complete helping of all the Hammer material in one fell swoop, with all getting anamorphic transfers.
no having to slog thru post after post of "it's great we're seeing this

as long as the transfers and encoding look good (and that jury will be out until Sept), i think Universal should be applauded for this.
