From 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.
