    "Dracula
    The original classic starring Bela Lugosi is the signature adaptation of Bram Stoker’s story that defined the iconic look and frightening character of the famed vampire.

    Frankenstein
    An unforgettable masterpiece, Boris Karloff stars as the screen’s most tragic and iconic monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made.

    The Bride of Frankenstein
    In one of the most popular horror classics of all time, Boris Karloff reprises his role as the silver screen’s most misunderstood monster, who now longs for a mate.

    Creature from the Black Lagoon
    A hideous creature kidnaps the woman it loves, forcing scientists to hunt it all the way back into the depths from where it came in this iconic horror film."

    Customer Reviews

    These are the best of the old classics of horror in the movies.

    I won't go into they're obvious content, rather remembering a time when we felt sorry for the monsters,and all the abuse they went through-Before They Got Angry!!!
    Eddy Z
    All the movies are great and we love watching them over and over.

    IMPORTANT NOTE, ADDED JUNE 22, 2012: This review was originally posted to the Universal 100th Anniversary Classic Monsters DVD 4-pack that includes Dracula, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon. However, Amazon has seen fit (as they so often do) to ALSO post the reviews for this product on the listing for the SECOND Universal Monsters 4-pack, which comes out in the fall of 2012, and which does NOT contain these films, but four other classic monster films: WOLF MAN, INVISIBLE MAN, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and THE MUMMY. Please don't think that I placed it there myself, if that's where you happen to be reading it. Thanks.

    ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE, ADDED DEC. 31, 2012: Due to Amazon's inexplicable policy of porting reviews from one product listing to other listings (regardless of whether the products are the same!), I'm unable to properly review the SECOND "Classic Monsters" 4 disc collection under it's own listing as my review of the FIRST set already appears there, and Amazon does not allow "multiple" reviews on what it perceives to be the same product. As such, both the first AND second Classic Monsters collections have the same 38 reviews (as I write this), nearly all of which should ONLY be attached to the product listing for the first set. Thus I've no choice but to pad this review out a bit further to encompass BOTH sets, I've opted to include details about the bonus features for each of the four discs in the second set (THE MUMMY, THE WOLF MAN, THE INVISIBLE MAN and THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA) underneath the product details for the four discs in the first set, as outlined further down this review.

    What Amazon doesn't tell you is that the Spanish version is also included in the Dracula DVD. Nice extra. I watched them all, and the quality is good, sound is also very good. Some of the commentary is. I don't remember Tom Weaver commentint of the Creature DVD last time. I love to listen to the commentary. I love the fact that they're on separate disks. I only wish they were on Blu Ray. Should have included Wolfman or Wolfman Meets Frankenstein. For the 100th Anniversary, put out a classic Monster Blu Ray set.

    The Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection [Blu-ray] was too expensive, so I bought the DVD set. The product came in the mail today, and it arrived in great condition. It had 4 great movies for a great price. The movies included were, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, and Creature from the Black Lagoon. These are the 1999 DVD versions of the films, but the quality was pretty good for these older movies. I just watched Frankenstein on my Play Station 3, and it looked great. I know the picture is not as good as the Blu-ray set, but it still looked very impressive. I love all of these films, but Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein still remain my favorites(Frankenstein is probably the first horror movie I ever saw).Dracula is another one of my favorites. Bela Lugosi is classic as Dracula. Creature from the Black Lagoon was good, but not great. Over all,the quality is great, and you could watch these over and over again. And what more would you ask than that?

    Growing up, I LOVED these old "horror movies". Like the format of "multi-movies" on the same DVD. VERY PLEASED with this product. Fast shipping, too, made this transaction VERY POSITIVE!!! THANKS!!!

    THIS REVIEW IS FOR "Classic Monsters Spotlight Collection [Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from Black Lagoon] (Universal's 100th Anniversary)," BUT IT ALSO INCLUDES INFORMATION REGARDING ITS SISTER PURCHASE, Classic Monsters Spotlight Collection (The Mummy (1932) / The Wolf Man / The Invisible Man / Phantom of the Opera (1943))

    These 2 DVD's are on sale for $150.00 at TCM, in one box, with the same exact films, but with additional features about the making of the films, interviews, and whatever they could throw in. This is a gift for my Dad, who watches a lot of late night television, so I know that he's either either already seen the additional information about these films, or would Never bother to watch the additional information on the DVD's ("Special Features" is a swear word in our home). Paying @14.99 per DVD ($5 dollars cheaper than these individual DVD's on TCM as well) and saving me $120.00, makes me happy. My Dad gets the best 8 horror flicks of all times, and I get the happiness of giving him a gift I know he will use, in its entirety, not ignored, or tossed aside partially used. This is one of the best win-win presents I've ever given him.

    I may have failed to mention that my Dad and I were watching an old movie on Turner Classic Movies and he was saying that it was too bad they never show the black and white Horror Flicks he grew up loving, his particular favorite being Creature from the Black Lagoon, when an ad came on for the $150.00 box set of all 8 of these films. He went on and on for awhile about the ridiculous price, and who needs those Bleeping Spec*$^ Featu$@& anyway.
