Universal Horror Collection Vol. 1 06/22/19

Scream Factory

Universal has done pretty well with their classic monsters (except for hanging The Creature out to dry), but this first Blu-ray foray away from the franchise winners has been farmed out, with excellent results. Lavish, well-researched and illustrated extras accompany exemplary restorations of The Black Cat (’34), The Raven (’35), The Invisible Ray and Black Friday; all star Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. Monstrous Charlie Largent does the honors review-wise this time, with his expected insights and humorous side-angles. On Blu-ray from Scream Factory.
