Universal Monsters Blu-ray

   Grade: 5

   Number of Discs: 8

   Release Company: Universal Home Entertainment






The Set: Looking good equals feeling good and nothing’s as zesty looking than this eight-disc set of classic monsters gold.  With transfers that recapture what made these flicks great (check out "Creature From the Black Lagoon" the way it was meant to be seen – in 3D!), a cavalcade of extras (each flick has a minimum of a half dozen extras for your movie geek pleasure!) and lush packaging, this one is a collection owning no brainer! 

Hidden Gem: The collectable 45-page booklet that accompanies this set is a movie historian dream with movie descriptions, biographies on your favorite actors and even savory marketing materials to make the fan drool.
