Description

Collection of classic US horror films. In 'Werewolf of London' (1935) Dr Wilfred Glendon (Henry Hull) is attacked on a dark night by a strange animal while abroad on a botanical expedition. On his return to London, he realises that he himself has become a werewolf, turning into a crazed beast at every full moon. His only hope of a cure is a rare flower that can only be found in Asia. In 'The Wolf Man' (1941) Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) returns from college in America to his father's mansion in Wales. After meeting Gwen Conliffe (Evelyn Ankers) in the nearby village, he escorts her to the local fair. She tells him the local legend of the werewolf, but he laughs it off - even when gypsy fortune teller Maleva (Maria Ouspenskaya) also tells him to beware. However, when Gwen's friend is then attacked by a wild wolf, Larry rescues her but is bitten in the process. Sure enough, when the next full moon comes round, Larry finds himself transformed into a murderous werewolf that can only be destroyed by silver. In 'Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man' (1943) Larry Talbot aka the Wolf Man decides to seek a cure for his lycanthropic malady after being accidentally resurrected by grave robbers. With Dr Frankenstein now dead, Talbot is forced to turn to scientist Dr Frank Mannering (Patric Knowles) for help. Mannering claims that not only can he banish the Wolf Man forever, he also intends to resurrect Frankenstein's dormant monster (Bela Lugosi). In 'House of Frankenstein' (1944) Dr Niemann (Boris Karloff) escapes from the mental asylum in which he is being held and awakens Count Dracula (John Carradine), the Wolf Man and Frankenstein's monster (Glenn Strange) as he looks to gain revenge on his many enemies. In 'House of Dracula' (1945) Count Dracula arrives at the laboratory of Dr Edelmann (Onslow Stevens) claiming to seek a cure for his vampirism, but is actually looking to turn Edelmann's beautiful assistant into his vampire bride. Meanwhile, the Wolf Man asks Edelmann to bring his lycanthropy to an end. However, when the attempt to cure him fails, he throws himself off a cliff and ends up in an underground cavern where he discovers Frankenstein's monster (Strange). 'She-Wolf of London' (1946) follows Phyllis (June Lockhart), a young woman who unwittingly transforms into a werewolf when night falls. Suspected of committing a series of gruesome murders, she breaks off her relationship with her partner Barry (Don Porter). However, convinced Phyllis is innocent, Barry launches an investigation of his own in a bid to clear her name. Finally, in 'Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein' (1948) baggage clerks Chick (Bud Abbott) and Wilbur (Lou Costello) find themselves in hot water when they lose a mysterious shipment en route to the House of Horrors. It transpires that the missing crates contained the remains of Count Dracula (Lugosi) and Frankenstein's monster (Strange), and have now been diverted to the island hideaway of a crazed scientist who wishes to revive the ghouls.

Delivery FAQs

Q | How will I know when my order has been sent?
As soon as your order is despatched from our warehouse, you'll be sent an email just to confirm that it's on its journey to you (remember to check your spam if you've not ordered from us before). You can check the status of your order in your account by clicking here.

Q | Once my order has been despatched, when will I receive it? 
From the time you receive your despatch confirmation email we would expect you to receive your order:

  1. For Standard UK delivery 3-5 working days for deliveries within the UK once goods are despatched. If it does happen - on the off chance - to take any longer than this time period to reach you, Royal Mail policy requests we wait 10 working days to pass before classifying an item as "lost".
  2. 1st Class UK delivery: 1-2 working days once goods are despatched provided orders are placed prior to 12:00 (see above).
  3. Next Day UK delivery: next day delivery as long as orders are placed by 12:00 Monday to Thursday only.
  4. Standard Delivery to all other European Union Countries should take 3-6 working days once goods are despatched provided orders are placed prior to 12:00.

Q | Do you charge for delivery? 
We offer FREE delivery on a wide range of our products. UK delivery is always free over £30. We offer a range of delivery options at varying costs. Delivery to other countries in the European Union starts from £2.99.

Q | What do I do if I have not received my order? 
If your order doesn't arrive within 10 working days - contact us straight away so that we can investigate further. Please note: if you do not receive your order and you do not notify us within 30 days after despatch, we reserve the right not to refund or replace it.

Q | One of the items is missing from my order. What do I do? 
We endeavour to ship your whole order in as few packages as possible but sometimes items are sent separately. All items that should be in your package should be listed on your delivery note. If this does not match, please let us know straight away.

To give you some peace of mind, we'll be sure to send you an email to let you know when each item is on its way. Pre-orders placed with other items will be despatched separately prior to release day.

Q | What happens if I am not at home to accept my delivery? 
Due to the size of most of our products, usually they don't require you to be at home to take delivery as they will fit through your letterbox.

In the event that you have ordered products which will not fit through your letterbox, (and you aren't in to take delivery) then the postal service will follow their usual procedure. For UK orders this usually means a card is left to notify you of an attempted delivery and the item will be held at your local sorting office. For items attempted for delivery by a courier service they will also leave a card and allow you to arrange for redelivery or collection.

Q | Am I able to change the delivery address to something other than my registered PayPal address? 
For the time being, we're unable to deliver your order to an alternative address - meaning all items will be posted to the address that's linked to your PayPal account.

Q | Do you deliver on Bank Holidays? 
Bank Holidays are not classed as working days so we don't include these in our estimated delivery times. On these days, you can expect your delivery on the next working day following the Bank Holiday.

Love these classics great memories

Service: Product:
Fantastic bluray box sets at a fantastic price, delivered with unbelievable speed.

The transfers of these films are wonderful (especially given the ages of the materials involved) and the sound restoration is also first class.

The documentaries included are extremely interesting too with other extras dotted here and there. The commentary tracks through in some lovely nuggets of information which I hadn't heard before.

The original '"Wolf Man'' is an (almost) expertly directed thriller (though occasionally Lon Chaney, Jr. does sometimes let the side down, Evelyn Ankers stands out in this era as being a very strong female lead who does rather more than just scream. It has to be said though, the entire film is stolen by Maria Ouspenskaya as the gypsy fortune teller. She's simply brilliant and would return in the sequel!

My favourite film of the set though is the somewhat overlooked ''She Wolf of London'' - I won't go into any ''spoilers'', but I can see why some people may not like it, but I think it's really good.

To have (almost) the complete back catalogue of Universal monster movies in such neat, shelf space saving boxes is a dream (or should that be ''nightmare''?? ;) ) come true at last.

I get such a rush of nostalgia watching these on a Friday or Saturday night when the BBC used to transmit Horror Double Features (either Universal or Hammer.)

The box sets are excellent value for money and I can't recommend them highly enough.
