Universal's classic monster flicks in Blu-ray box set

NewImageFrom Bela Lugosiin Dracula to Lon Chaney, Jr.'s The Wolf Man to Boris Karloff's Frankenstein, the classic Universal monster films of the 1920s-1960s defined horror cinema for a generation and elevated those creepy characters to timeless archetypes of scaredom. Universal has just re-issued eight of those classic films on Blu-ray in a box set: Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection. The set includes restored versions of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Phantom of the Opera, and Creature from the Black Lagoon, plus bonus featurettes, mini-documentaries about the special effects and the historical contexts of the films, and a 48-page book. The trailer above got me itching to watch all of the films. One after another. Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection
