“Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection” på Bluray i oktober!

Den som ihärdigt väntat på att få äga Universals klassiska skräckfilmer i högupplöst format kan snart andas ut. Den andra oktober, i samband med Universals hundraårsjubileum, släpps nämligen Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection. För första gången kan du då avnjuta Dracula, Frankenstein och resten av Universal-gänget digitalt restaurerade på Bluray.

 Totalt rör det sig om nio (om man räknar den spanska versionen av Dracula) klassiska monsterfilmer och skivorna är dessutom späckade extramaterial. Boxen kommer också levereras i en stilig digipackbox med ett 48-sidors booklet. Priset kommer i runda svängar hamna runt 500-lappen.

Information om ljud och bildförhållanden på filmerna i boxen ser inte ut att finnas i nuläget, men  här kommer lite info om vilka filmer det rör sig om samt vilket extramaterial som kommer finnas tillgängligt. Anmärkningsvärt är bland annat att Creature from the Black Lagoon kommer att kunna avnjutas i 3D.
