Universal Classic Monsters
If you love the classic monster movies produced by Universal in the early 1930s then you’ll be happy to know that you can now get your hands on an amazing package set of the best of the best. These are the films and the monsters that made Universal a power player studio in the early days of Hollywood. And they’re the films that set the standards for the stories, as they would be told for generations to come.
Here, in one place you’ve got Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man, and more, but most importantly the granddaddy of them all Dracula in both its English and Spanish presentations (yes, the same film was actually shot twice rather than simply dubbed or given sub-titles). Whether you want these films in time for a Halloween party, or to enjoy the whole year through you couldn’t get them in a better package than this one. With beautiful art work and lobby cards included there’s plenty to satisfy the collector as well as the devoted classic movie fan.
I’m particularly found of the quality of the cast involved with each production. Those unfamiliar with the films may shrug them off as mere movie kitsch, but we’re talking about Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi and Claude Rains. If you don’t know these films then you’re in for a real treat as you discover the joys of these wonderful early examples of how to scare an audience with class, style and creativity. I envy you.
