    For the first time ever, eight of the most iconic cinematic masterpieces of the horror genre are available together on Blu-ray as Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection. Digitally restored in perfect high-definition picture and perfect high-definition sound. This essential set includes a never-before-seen featurette about the restoration of Dracula and the first ever offering of Creature from the Black Lagoon in its restored Blu-ray 3D version.

    Dracula
    The original 1931 movie version of Bram Stoker's classic tale has for generations defined the iconic look and terrifying persona of the famed vampire. Dracula owes its continued appeal in large part due to Bela Lugosi's indelible portrayal of the immortal Count Dracula and the flawless direction of horror auteur Tod Browning.

    • Monster Tracks: Interactive Pop-Up Facts About the Making of Dracula

    Boris Karloff stars as the screen's most tragic and iconic monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made. Dr. Henry Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with the essential nature of life and death by creating a monster (Karloff) out of lifeless human body parts. Director James Whale's adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel and Karloff's compassionate portrayal of a creature groping for identity make Frankenstein a timeless masterpiece.

    The Mummy
    Horror icon Boris Karloff stars in the original 1932 version of The Mummy in which a team of British archaeologists accidentally revives a mummified high priest after 3,700 years. Alive again, he sets out on an obsessive - and deadly - quest to find his lost love. Over 50 years after its first release, this brooding dream-like horror classic remains a cinematic masterpiece.

Colin Clive is back as the proud and overly ambitious Dr. Frankenstein, who creates the ill-fated bride (Elsa Lanchester). The last horror film directed by James Whale features a haunting musical score that helps make The Bride of Frankenstein one of the finest and most touching thrillers of its era.

When the hideous creature escapes and kidnaps the object of his affection, a crusade is launched to rescue the helpless woman and cast the terrifying creature back to the depths from which he came.

A monster box

Such a great value to have those classic movies in HD, with great extras for each one of them. And the fact that Creature of Black Lagoon is available also in 3D is a must. I would not hesitate to buy this box if I didn't already buy it ;)

Amazing

Got this at a real bargain from Zavvi. Picked it up on Black Friday sales week. The packaging is great and came to Canada without any damages. The collection itself is worth your money. 8 discs of classic movies remastered in hi def and hi def sound. You get DTS HD master 2.0 mono track and for movies this old it's amazing. Tons of special features and original poster art from all the movies along with a booklet. The discs sit two on the same side overlapping each other buy having seperare grooves. This packaging is way better than the north american version as the discs are easy to remove without any damage. Great going Zavvi.
