Featuring four cult horror classics: Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Bride of Frankenstein.

Dracula:

Although there have been numerous screen versions of Bram Stoker’s classic tale, Dracula, none is more enduring than this 1931 movie. Towering ominously among the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains, Castle Dracula strikes fear in the hearts of the Transylvanian villagers below. With the superb Bela Lugosi starring as the screen’s most popular vampire Count Dracula, the film’s eerie and chilling mood is enhanced by specialist horror director Tod Browning. Dracula remains a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time.

Frankenstein:
Boris Karloff stars as the screen’s most memorable monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made. Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster (Karloff) out of lifeless body parts. It is director James Whale’s adaptation of the Mary Shelley novel blended with Karloff’s compassionate portrayal of a creature groping for identity that makes Frankenstein a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time.

The Wolf Man:
The original horror classic that introduced one of the screen’s most infamous monsters! Lon Chaney Jr. portrays Larry Talbot, who returns to his father’s (Claude Rains) castle in Wales and meets a beautiful woman (Evelyn Ankers). One fateful night, Talbot escorts her to a local carnival where Jenny’s fate is revealed by a mysterious gypsy fortune teller. Today, over 65 years after it was first released, the dreamlike atmospheres and elaborate settings combined with a chilling musical score make The Wolf Man a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time!

The Bride of Frankenstein:
One of the most popular horror classics of all time, and an acclaimed sequel to the original Frankenstein. The legendary Boris Karloff reprises his role as the screen’s most misunderstood monster who now longs for a mate of his own. Colin Clive is back as the overly ambitious Dr. Frankenstein, who creates the ill-fated bride (Elsa Lanchester). Directed by the original’s James Whale (his last horror film) and featuring a haunting musical score, The Bride of Frankenstein ranks as one of the finest films not only of the genre, but for all time.

UPDATE (November 2012)- all these films have now been remastered in fabulous High Definition and are available in the Monsters: The Essential Collection 8 disc blu ray boxset (also in limited edition coffin box) which also includes The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), The Phantom of the Opera (1943), & The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954).

You might think given the thickness of this set, that it contains a plethora of goodies such as booklets, reproduction movie posters & programs, perhaps some little Dracula, Frankenstein & Wolf Man figurines. Well, sadly, that is something only in my fantasies as this box set has really had the barest of efforts spent on it. It consists of four separate plastic Amaray cases for each film with red and black silhouette artwork and screenshot on the front, with a short synopsis on the back (the same as on this page) with a few tiny photos, repeated on the back of the cardboard sleeve which contains the four cases. No booklets are contained or any other physical extras. All contain the same DVD extras that were on the previous 2004/2005/2007 releases, but none of these are outlined on the Amaray cases or card sleeve. To compound the lazy feel only three of the discs match with an all black theme with 'Universal Cinema Classics' in Gold, whereas Wolf Man just seems to be taken from the 2010 re-release with the Wolf Man blue & white artwork from the cover of that release.

Dracula, the wolfman, frankenstein nd bride of Frankenstein are contained in this set of 4 dvds in separate cases. The films I enjoyed years ago and although not as scary as films nowadays they do still have the thriller element. No glossy packaging but foor around 1.25 each well worth the purchase to while away a cold winter day.

These are not gory or gross, but, thety have 'atmosphere' aplenty anda few jump-surprises. See virtually every cliche before they were cliches. Highly enjoyable !!

My husband had actually asked for these. I knew I would not be able to get them on the high street, but as usual I knew I'd get them on Amazon. He loved them! .

The original horror classics, released yet again- I would love to have colourised versions of these movies. What I can't believe is this is rated 15- these movies are movies I watched when I was 8 years old- they are movies pre-teens will appreciate more than teenagers- rating them as 15 yet again brings the BBFC into disrepute!
