   With Halloween a little over a month away, eight of the most iconic cinematic masterpieces of the horror genre will soon be available together on Blu-ray. Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection debuts October 2nd through Universal Studios Home Entertainment. For almost a century, Universal Pictures is described as the Hollywood home of ghouls, fiends, and creatures.

   Capturing performances by screen legends of the horror genre, including Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney, Jr., Claude Rains, and Elsa Lanchester, these classics also feature groundbreaking special effects and innovative makeup. Sure to become a Halloween favorite for years to come, Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection is the ideal gift for classic movie buffs and horror aficionados alike. This collection includes Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera, and Creature From the Black Lagoon. Extra background goodies are part of this latest historic DVD series.

   On a personal note, I’m particularly thrilled chapters on Claude Rains and Lon Chaney Jr. in the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series chronicles the importance of Universal Pictures with regards to the lingering popularity of the horror genre at your local theater, or on cable. It’s another reason to pick up copies of my literary works complimenting this new DVD collection; which is a must-buy for anyone with a bowl of wrapped candy, waiting for costumed children  hollering trick-or-treat outside their ghoulishly decorated home…

Until next time>                               “never forget”
