There’s just something about watching Universal’s iconic monster movies around Halloween that feels extra special, isn’t there? Of course, you could say that just watching horror movies in general has a different feel to it around this time of the year, but monsters like Frankenstein and Dracula just seem to perfectly go hand-in-hand with the spooky season. And if you’re going to revisit those classics, might as well do it in style!
As spotted over on the Facebook group Horror DVD & BD Collectors, Walmart has just rolled out a special end-cap showcasing a series of limited edition re-releases that feature glow-in-the-dark slipcovers, and while the Universal Monsters mostly dominate the display, An American Werewolf in London, Child’s Play 2, and Halloween are also in the mix. They join Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Bride of Frankenstein, Phantom of the Opera, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, and The Invisible Man.
On a related note, both the Frankenstein Legacy Collection and Wolf Man Legacy Collection finally hit Blu-ray today. We expect that the other Universal Monsters will soon get the same treatment, though at this time, we don’t yet have any information about subsequent Legacy Collection Blu-ray releases.
