We are only one short week away from the release of Universal’s Classic Monster blu-ray set. The set features 8 films including some of the most iconic monsters in cinema history with The Wolfman, Frankenstein, and Dracula. What makes this set so special is that it’s a look back at the history of cinema and where horror began. We as fans of horror need to appreciate what actors like Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Lon Chaney Jr did for our beloved genre and there’s no better way to do that then by watching their classic films in the best possible quality.
Each film has gone through the long and tedious process of being remastered in wonderful high def. The hard working people behind these restorations don’t get enough recognition. They go through each and every frame and clean up all the wear and tear that has accumulated over the last 80 years.
The video below gives a fascinating look into the very process that goes into restoring the films; this one in particular shows Dracula.
