The Wolf Man & Frankenstein Legacy Collections Are Coming!

Frankenstein legacy

Universal has announced the next two Universal Monsters films to receive the Legacy Collection treatment on Blu-ray this year.

When Universal began releasing the classic monsters on VHS, it was a great time for fans that long wanted to own these films.  When DVD came around, fans began clamoring for them to be released on this new format.  Since 2014, Universal has started to release their Universal Monsters movies on blu-ray and it’s not only a new format to own these classics on, but a fun way to reintroduce people to monsters like Dracula and The Mummy.  With the “Legacy Collection”, fans could own the entire library of Universal Monsters with original monster movies and sequels being included in each release.

For release on September 13th of this year, with an SRP of $39.98 each), the Frankenstein and The Wolf Man Legacy Collection blu-ray’s will include the following films, just like their DVD counterparts. 

Frankenstein: Complete Legacy Collection

  • The Wolfman (1941),
  • Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943),
  • House of Frankenstein(1944),
  • House of Dracula (1945),
  • Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948),
  • Werewolf of London(1935), and
  • She-Wolf of London (1946).

As Universal is developing their “Monsters Universe” of films starting with 2017’s The Mummy, now seems like the perfect time to release these classics on a format like blu-ray.  And with names like Javier Bardem and Angelina Jolie being associated with James Whale’s beautiful and iconic films Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein, it might be just the right time to brush up on these timeless films.

The original Universal Monsters films actually already exist on blu-ray in an “Essential Collection” and we have the review of that set.  But even if you already own the collection, who doesn’t want to see films like The Ghost of Frankenstein and Werewolf of London in HD?

For more on these sets, you could visit Amazon for both Frankenstein and The Wolf Man.

  1. Have these titles been restored or simply reissued on bluesy?
    We know of the jump cut in the opening title in Frankenstein meets the Wolf Man, and the large scratch that appears in a scene of the full moon.
    The Essential bluray set was wonderful and was hoping that these new titles would simply be grouped together into one bluray set…not a reissue of the Legacy Sets, and duplicate titles….what a disappointment. I will wait and read numerous reviews about the video and audio quality of these titles before spending any cash
