Classic horror films collection review

     It is almost that time of year again.... Halloween of course!! So to get you in the mood is some 'old school' horror.... The original masters to be exact. With Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Claude Rains and Lon Chaney Jr to name but a few stars in this perfectly creepy correlated collection. But wait there be more. This isn't just a remastered collection of Blu-ray films, the box also contains art cards of the cinema posters from back in the day and a book with over 45 pages of behind the scenes pictures and information on each film.
     Watching these films back you can see where a lot of plots, themes and characters originate from for modern day movies. So you don't have to be a complete movie buff to appreciate them as not just films but works of art. As you can see its a complete package with a great layout of discs and corresponding snapshots from the films on the packaging which will make you proud to have this collection at the very front of your Blu-ray shelf at home.
Classic horror films collection review     Each film has been remastered to bring it into the 21st century while still retaining that 1930's look to keep you loving every second.... of terror!! Now we are not going to bore you with every single detail of every film but all we'll say is it will definitely get you in the mood for the season and if you are a tad on the creative side then it may get your juices flowing to film your own or bust out the costumes.... We would undoubtedly love to see them.
     The box set includes,
- Dracula
- Frankenstein
- The Mummy
- The Invisible Man
- The Bride of Frankenstein
- The Wolf Man
- Phantom of The Opera
- Creature From The Black Lagoon

     Vintage Horror has always been a big influence, whether it be the actors, style or the poster and concept art. Simply seductive black and white or vivid saturated colour, fonts and framing composition make for great wall art and even our own 'Taken By Force' logo has inspiration from 1930's style posters as you can see from the cards bellow. Particularly Frankenstein and The Creature From The Black Lagoon.

     You can pick all this up for between £20-£25, considering all the discs, art cards and backstage literature we think this is a great deal and a great night in. So grab the chips, dips and your favourite pillow to hide behind and treat yourself to a FRIGHT NIGHT!!
