‘Dracula’ and ‘The Mummy’ Complete Legacy Collections Coming to Blu-ray

Last year I picked up the Universal Monsters: Essential Collection Blu-ray set, which is an absolute must-own for all fans of Universal’s classic monster movies. The set includes all 8 core movies along with all sorts of special features and bonus goodies; what it unfortunately doesn’t include, however, are the various sequels and spinoffs to films like Dracula and The Wolf Man.

All of those follow-up films can be found alongside the originals in Universal’s Legacy Collection releases – none of which, until last year, made their way onto Blu-ray. At the tail end of last year, Universal began bringing the Legacy Collection to Blu-ray with high-def sets for Frankenstein and The Wolf Man, and we’re happy to report that Dracula and The Mummy are next.

Set for release on May 16th, the Dracula: Complete Legacy Collection and The Mummy: Complete Legacy Collection Blu-ray sets each contain all six original legacy films.

DRACULA:

  • Dracula – Special features include ‘The Road to Dracula,’ ‘Lugosi: The Dark Prince,’ ‘Dracula: The Restoration,’ ‘Monster Tracks,’ ‘Dracula Archives,’ Alternate Score by Philip Glass, Feature Commentary with Film Historian David J. Skal, Feature Commentary with Steve Haberman, Trailer Gallery

  • Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein – Special features include ‘Abbott and Costello Meet the Monsters,’ Feature Commentary with Film Historian Gregory W. Mank, Theatrical Trailer, ‘100 Years of Universal: The Lot,’ ‘100 Years at Universal: Unforgettable Characters’

    What? No “Spanish Dracula?” 🙁

      The better version.

  • Ocelot006 .

    Definitely excited for that Mummy collection. Plus Universal is releasing the Sommers’ Mummy movies on 4K and hopefully they are actually remastered. Those Bourne 4Ks were apparently a disaster.

    Is this a US release only? Only the old DVD versions currently available in the UK. Can’t seem to find any info on line.

    Love the Universal classic monsters. Nothing creepier than watching Son of Frankenstein on a rainy night. They are fun to catch on Svengoolie too

    Honestly wish there was just a single set of the whole thing. You get kind of screwed with repeats. How many copies of A&C meet Frankenstein does one need? Also…Why didn’t they just complete the run…All that’s left is the Creature from the Black Lagoon series….Which is my personal favorite.
