Classic Monster Collection

Overview

Any horror-movie buff worth his salt will tell you that the best monster movies of the 1930s and '40s were produced by Universal Pictures; just as MGM was the king of the musical and Warner Bros. dominated film noir, Universal had its finger firmly on the pulse of the horror medium, producing many of the genre's best-remembered films while introducing the most famous characters. This box-set collects eight of Universal's most famous horror titles from the golden age of classic monsters. The set includes ...

Overview

Any horror-movie buff worth his salt will tell you that the best monster movies of the 1930s and '40s were produced by Universal Pictures; just as MGM was the king of the musical and Warner Bros. dominated film noir, Universal had its finger firmly on the pulse of the horror medium, producing many of the genre's best-remembered films while introducing the most famous characters. This box-set collects eight of Universal's most famous horror titles from the golden age of classic monsters. The set includes Frankenstein (1931), the James Whale classic that made Boris Karloff an overnight star; Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Whale's witty sequel that featured Karloff reprising his role as the monster and Elsa Lanchester in a brief but memorable role as his mate; Dracula (1931), Universal's first horror hit of the sound era, which starred Bela Lugosi in the role that defined his career; The Mummy (1932), featuring one of Boris Karloff's most memorable performances as the undead Egyptian Im-Ho-Tep; The Invisible Man (1933), Whale's adaptation of the H.G. Wells story starring Claude Rains; The Wolf Man (1941), in which Lon Chaney Jr. had his first great monster role as the unfortunate lycanthrope Larry Talbot; The Phantom of the Opera (1943), a lavish Technicolor adaptation of Gaston Leroux's classic tale with Claude Rains in the title role; and The Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954), Universal's last great original monster and the first to be designed with 3-D in mind (though this video release is sadly in 2-D).

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The monsters of Universal's horror heyday defined a genre. The films fused Gothic modernism with classic stories, bringing vampires and werewolves into contemporary settings, outfitting mad scientists with only the most current electrical gadgetry, and making acting legends out of Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, and Claude Rains. Directors steeped in old-fashioned melodrama Tod Browning and the striking visual style of German silent films James Whale and Karl Freund brought a unique look and feel to Universal's horror films. Now collected in a DVD box set are the eight monumental monsters of Universal, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and The Phantom of the Opera. Each DVD features an original documentary on its making, commentary from distinguished film historians, production notes, posters, pictures, and theatrical trailers.

    The Perfect Collection!

    This is a great collection for any fan of the Universal monster movies. This collection contains the best films. Each DVD is full of special features, and they are truly special. On the Dracula DVD, you can view the Spanish version of the film, with different actors, shot parallel to the English version. The DVDs also feature commentary by film critics, which are often very insightfull. The documentaries available often tell a great story, that are sometimes more interesting than the movie! This collection is great!
