There seems to be some confusion on the reviews of this superb box set. I have recently purchased it from Amazon and can confirm it includes: murders in the rue morgue, the black cat, the raven, The invisible ray and Black Friday so am unsure which box set other reviewers are referring to!

With the exception of Dracula and White Zombie the films contained in this collection, in my opinion, represent the high points of Lugosi's career. Unlike many cheaper Lugosi box sets available on Amazon this is a quality affair. The pictures are crisp and well defined with deep blacks, not light grey, whilst the audio tracks are clear and not drowned out by the 'hiss' or distortion often found on cheaper releases.

If you are a Lugosi fan and have bought, and been disappointed by cheaper box sets, this is the one that stands out from the crowd. A must buy!

the films in this dvd set are the ones to watch for those who haven't seen much of bela lugosi. the picture and sound quality is excellent throughout and as it was "universal" studios who released this set, so much the better.
there are 5 films altogether. i recommend "the black cat," "the invisible ray," and "murders in the rue morgue" the most as they transcend horror in the film world. i still reckon that the version of "rue morgue" is the censored one as some film references guides list the running time as 75 minutes. here, the running time is 60 minutes. in a way, i can understand the cuts that were made as some of the violence and horror is a bit extreme for 1932. however, there are some classic moments to be seen in the film and lugosi has the time of his life as the mad dr. mirakle. "the invisible ray" sees karloff and lugosi on the same side for a change rather than being foes. as the main character, karloff seeks help and guidance after one of his experiments goes awry. lugosi becomes his ally and does all he can to alleviate karloff's problem but at a cost........ a classic of science fiction as well as horror. the special effects are terrific for 1936.
"the black cat" is the more original film in this collection. released in 1934 and shot in 19 days, there are key moments that would have difficulty getting past the censors nowadays, let alone back then! as the film did indeed run into censorship problems, an additional 3 days were alloted to the filming schedule. during that time, the director was able to include 1 or 2 other daring scenes that practically flew by the censors as they didn't understand what the extra footage meant!

This collection is comprised of some of Bela Lugosi's not so well known roles in which he did not play Dracula. But it also contains some of the finest acting on his part and some of the worst and all are overlooked or overshadowed in favor of his Dracula role.

The films are all black and white, off beat and are horror films in nature. They are good quality films visually, nicely restored and the sound is good. There is one disk in this collection, double sided.

We start the rampage with Murders in the Rue Morgue, an interpretation of Edgar Allen Poe's classic, and we find Lugosi as a mad scientist looking for a human bride for his gorilla. Gorilla finds girl, gorilla kidnaps girl, mad scientist injects girl with gorilla blood, girl dies, repeat till we get to the star, then boyfriend tracks them down, kills mad scientist and gorilla. Gorilla always loses girl. Actually, it's not all that bad. Love the faces on Bela as the mad scientist. It's amusing if nothing else.

The real reason to purchase this collection is the second film The Black Cat. Staring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff, with Karloff as the Priest of Satan and he plays the part very well. That stare - that glower... he is so totally a minion of Satan. Oh, the cat-phobic Lugosi is a scream. This is a classic chiller; sit on the edge of your chair film. Not to be missed.

At times you have to wonder about this collection. Some of these films Karloff is just as strong a character as Lugosi is and you got to wonder - why did they call this the Lugosi collection?

Another very good reason to buy this collection and probably the best offering of this collection is The Raven. Here again we are treated to the magical chemistry of Lugosi and Karloff at it's very finest.

Unfortunetly Amazon have bundled lesser works and bad quality prints of other Bela Lugosi box sets with this one. This review is for the picture you see above, THE BELA LUGOSI COLLECTION.

All prints are fine (the best they can be) and the only complaint here is that there are zero extras. Film commentary by an historian would have been great. Thus we get 5 films on this box set.

MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE is a fine movie with Bela Lugosi on great form and backed up by Sidney Fox. Based on an Edgar Allen Poe short.

THE BLACK CAT is Lugosi and Boris Karloff's first pairing, another excellent movie with wonderful futuristic sets, both stars stand out in this one.

THE RAVEN see's Karloff as the hapless good guy and Lugosi as the bad one keeping him as a prisoner, check out Karloff's haircut.

THE INVISIBLE RAY is arguably the best movie on the set- again Lugosi and Karloff star. This time there are many locations, good sets and good special effects. Lugosi upstages Karloff in this one.

BLACK FRIDAY- Another Lugosi and Karloff movie, this one is essentially a take on the Jekyll and Hyde story- feels more thriller than horror.

This set is an essential purchase with 5 quality movies on 1 flipside disc. The price is excellent and the DVD is encased in a super deep ridge. All is well and the slimline box set, the same measurement as a normal DVD is sturdy and packed well.

Fans of Boris Karloff will love this set as he stars in 4 of the 5 movies.
