Blu-Ray News #188: Universal Classic Monsters – Complete 30-Film Collection (1931-1956).

If in its glory days, Universal made a movie about Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, The Wolf Man, The Invisible Man or The Creature From The Black Lagoon, it’s in this box — in high definition. What more do I have to tell you?

Here’s what you get: Dracula / Drácula (Spanish version) / Frankenstein / The Mummy / The Invisible Man / Werewolf Of London / Bride Of Frankenstein / Dracula’s Daughter / Son Of Frankenstein / The Invisible Man Returns / The Mummy’s Hand / The Invisible Woman / The Wolf Man / The Mummy’s Tomb / Ghost Of Frankenstein / Invisible Agent / Son Of Dracula / Phantom Of The Opera / Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man / The Mummy’s Ghost / House Of Frankenstein / The Mummy’s Curse / The Invisible Man’s Revenge / House Of Dracula / She-Wolf Of London / Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein / Abbott & Costello Meet The Invisible Man / Creature From The Black Lagoon / Abbott & Costello Meet The Mummy / Revenge Of The Creature / The Creature Walks Among Us

s-l1600-2

Thirty movies in all, and only one in color (Phantom Of The Opera). The Creature movies and Abbott & Costello Meet The Mummy are 1.85.

a-and-c-meet-dr-jekyllJust wondering: where’s Abbott & Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1953)? Guess Jekyll/Hyde’s outside their normal monster cycle.

This is a great thing, and it’s coming next week.

    off topic but still with Universal-
    Kino Lorber’s deal with Universal is gaining momentum.
    They have just announced a couple of Jeff Chandler titles
    including Joseph Pevney’s FOXFIRE making its Worldwide Blu Ray debut.
    FOXFIRE has never even had a DVD release so this is very fine news
    indeed. Apart from Chandler FOXFIRE features Jane Russell,Dan Duryea,
    Mara Corday and Barton Maclane.
    It’s always good to see a title making a Worldwide debut and hopefully
    Kino will unearth other unavailable Universal gems like THE TATTERED
    DRESS,ISTANBUL,SADDLE TRAMP,RAILS INTO LARAMIE,NEVER
    STEAL ANYTHING SMALL and LARCENY to name but a few.
