New Universal Monsters Collection Brings the Classics to 4K Ultra HD

Universal has announced an all new film collection, bringing their iconic movie monsters to 4K Ultra HD for the first time.

If you missed out on Universal’s ridiculously impressive classic monster Blu-ray set, well…you really missed out on something great. However, you’ll soon get the chance to get in on the classic action with the “Universal Classic Monsters Icons of Horror Collection.”

While it doesn’t boast all of the films from those franchises (only bringing together Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, and The Wolf Man), it is the first time these classics are coming to the 4K format for fans to enjoy. That alone makes it worth picking up when it launches on October 5, 2021:

From the era of silent movies through present day, Universal Pictures has been regarded as the home of the monsters. Universal Classic Monsters Icons of Horror Collection showcases four of the most iconic monsters in motion picture history including Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and The Wolf Man. Starring Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Jr. and Claude Rains in the roles that they made famous, these original films set the standard for a new horror genre with revolutionary makeup, mood-altering cinematography and groundbreaking special effects.
