***NEW TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT***

Get ready for a another round of old school chills and thrills. The UNIVERSAL HORROR COLLECTION VOLUME 4 is coming to Blu-ray on March 17th!

This latest volume includes four tales of terror from the archives of Universal Pictures, the true home of classic horror. This collection includes such horror stars as Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lionel Atwill, and Rondo Hatton.

Boris Karloff ignites the screen as an inventor who is kidnapped by a gang of burglars and forced to help them commit robberies in NIGHT KEY. Bela Lugosi stars in a creepy tale of strange characters, secret passages and a murderer who masters the art of “mind over matter” in NIGHT MONSTER. In THE CLIMAX, Karloff is terrifying as a mad doctor whose insane jealousy over a beautiful opera singer may drive him to murder. A giant of a man is used as an instrument of evil by a mad sculptor in HOUSE OF HORRORS,

Extras are in progress and will be announced on a later date. Pre-order now @ https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/universal-horror-collection-…

I'm actually most excited about HOUSE OF HORRORS....

After these four volumes, the upcoming MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE single and THE STRANGE DOOR from Kino, that leaves only 2 outliers from the earlier DVD collections (the Lugosi, Karloff, and Universal Horror Archive sets):

THE BLACK CASTLE
CAPTIVE WILD WOMAN

There's half of Volume 5 right there. Actually, I'd prefer they release CAPTIVE WILD WOMAN in its own set with the two sequels (JUNGLE WOMAN and THE JUNGLE CAPTIVE). So maybe they can add some others that weren't collected (but released individually in the Universal Vault series)....

SECRET OF THE BLUE ROOM
SUPERNATURAL
THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
THE MYSTERY OF MARY ROGET
THE BRUTE MAN
CULT OF THE COBRA
THE THING THAT COULDN'T DIE

...I'm sure I'm forgetting a few. But hey, that's enough for at least TWO more Blu-ray sets!

Night Monster is the Crown Jewel here.

Here's hoping they do a Vol. 5 with some of those missing '30s-'40s Paramount horrors: Terror Aboard, The Mad Doctor, Among the Living, Man in Half Moon Street....
I'd add Murder By the Clock, Double Door, and Secret of the Blue Room to the list

Captive Wild Woman should have made it on to this next collection.

Keep in mind they are doing these in "time order" so they next set should be mid to late 40s, possibly early 50s as there weren't many Universal Horrors after House of Dracula until the early 50s..

I also believe the Inner Sanctum Mysteries, will probably get their own collection.
But here are the remaining titles previously released on box sets, or MOD.

Captive Wild Woman (From the Universal Horror: Classic Movie Archive)
Mystery of Edwin Drood (MOD)
Secrets of the Blue Room (MOD)
Monster and the Girl (MOD)

Also The Black Castle, ( From the Boris Karloff Universal Collection),
if they decide not to remain in the 30- 40's theme.

Jungle Woman also was put out as a MOD a while back as part of Universal's Vault Series.

Actually, I think almost all the Universal films available in box sets, were released as individual MOD DVDs.
I was just predicting what maybe in a possible volume five collection.
