All 30 classic monster films in HD for the very first time.
As great as the Universal Monsters: Essential Collection Blu-ray set is, it only contains all eight core Universal Monsters movies, and *not* the various sequels and spinoffs that were included with the individual “Legacy Collection” DVDs. So when is the 30-film Legacy Collection finally going to hit Blu-ray, you ask? We’ve just learned it’s coming on August 28!
