    To clarify something not obvious from my post, a lot of the movies appear as double-features. As such, there aren't as many DVDs to buy as it might seem...

    You left The Wolf Man (1941) off your list, but it is listed in your reviews.

    If you want to truly complete your collection, you could also include the Abbott and Costello series of films. I know my monster collection would not be complete without Bela Lugosi's final turn as Dracula in "Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein".

    Here's an excellent site:

    The real interesting question is, what will be in Universal's next round? Though, as costly as the latest ones were, I've yet to even pick them up. [​IMG]

    What I want to know is where the heck is Freaks and Island of Lost Souls? I know Universal doesn't have Freaks, but didn't they release the last VHS version of IoLS?

    rutger,

    Thanks for that info. I just picked up Frankenstein 2 weeks ago. I already have Dracula. I guess I must bit my lip and go into BlockBusters and order it. For 29.99 its hard to pass that up.

    Has anyone checked their local Blockbusters for this set? I checked two in my area on Friday night and thye couldn't find it in their computer. I had them check the Nightmare set just to check and they had the set come up for $99 not $49. Could the $24.99 been a misprice? If anyone happens to stop by please check for me.
