Universal Studios Monsters Classics coming to Blu-Ray!

If you’re a fan of the horror genre, then there is absolutely no way that you’re not in love with the original classic Universal Studios Monsters films. And if you’re a horror fan and HAVEN’T seen any of these, then you truly need to do yourself a favor and get this set. Trust me. I grew up on all these movies and spent a massive chunk of my childhood watching these things and I get so extremely nostalgic just looking at the cover art for this blu-ray set. I remember as a kid, in elementary school, every year around halloween we’d get these little coloring sheets for every classic Monster and I used to get so excited for those every year. WOO, well, now I’m just rambling, so here’s what you get in the set!
