Classic Universal monster films come back to life on Blu-ray
All throughout this year, Universal has been marking its 100th year in business by releasing classic films, and October will be no different. Just as we’ll be getting ready for Halloween, Universal is releasing the tantalisingly ghoulish Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection on Blu-ray.
The eight disc, limited edition box set will include high definition remastered versions of classics including: Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Phantom of the Opera and The Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Packed with hours of spine-tingling special features and the brand new HD versions of the films, this box set will give you the chance to revisit classic performances from Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi and Claude Rains (among others).
You can see a sample of the amazing work that Universal has put into restoring these classic films in the video below. Blu-ray.com has the full story.
