Universal Classic Monsters:
Icons of Horor Collecion
review by Bobby Blakey
These movies have been reviewed to death though and this set is more about the 4K version and they are outstanding to look at. This set brings these four classic characters together in one set and that’s what I want to focus on more than anything. The collection of course has the films, but a ton of bonus content with each film all packaged together in a cool book style packaging. As you flip through the book to each film it features two discs for each with one being the film and the other its bonus content along with an image of the original poster art.
The awesome bonus features include commentaries, documentaries, archival footage, featurettes, trailers, production photographs, the 1931 Spanish version of Dracula and so much more. The films are enough, but diving into all the bonus content takes you on an even cooler journey of bringing these icons of horror to life. If you have never really immersed into the world of these characters outside the films then it is even more important for you to check out this set.
Step into the classic world of the icons of horror and grab your copy of the Universal Classic Monsters Collection on 4K Ultra for the first time ever from Universal Home Entertainment.
For years there have been numerous takes on the horror genre, but nothing more iconic than the original Universal Monsters consisting of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman and so many more. Now Universal is bringing fans four of the classic films Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man and The Invisible Man together on 4K for the first time with the Universal Classic Monsters Collection.
Universal Pictures has been regarded as the home of the monsters. These four classic films feature Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr. and Claude Rains in the roles that they made famous in the films that set the standard for a new horror genre with revolutionary makeup, mood-altering cinematography and groundbreaking special effects.
I love monster flicks especially these classics. I grew up watching them all on TV and was always amazed at the sheer horrific beauty of them all. I could go on and on about each of the films but they are so iconic I am not sure it’s all that necessary. I will say in our house there is an ongoing debate on vampires and werewolves all the time and I am firmly cemented on the Lycan. The Wolf Man really stuck with me and I love it more and more with every viewing.
