|Universal Horror Collection: Volume 4 (2020)|
Scream/Shout! Factory, USA • $69.97
Get ready for more thrills and chills! Volume 4 of the Universal Horror Collection includes four tales of terror
from the archives of Universal Pictures, the true home of classic horror. This collection includes such horror stars as
Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lionel Atwill, and Rondo Hatton. Boris Karloff ignites the screen as an inventor
who is kidnapped by a gang of burglars and forced to help them commit robberies in Night Key. Bela Lugosi stars
in a creepy tale of strange characters, secret passages and a murderer who masters the art of "mind over matter"
in Night Monster. In The Climax, Karloff is terrifying as a mad doctor whose insane jealousy over
a beautiful opera singer may drive him to murder. A giant of a man is used as an instrument of evil by a mad
sculptor in House of Horrors.
"As for extras; 'Well, if it ain't broke...' so trailer, image gallery and an audio commentary (this time featuring film historians Kim Newman and Stephen Jones in a spirited and info-packed conversation) it is! . . . This is yet another solid collection from the Universal horror archives and, and is well worth owning for fans of classic chillers!"
"Film historians Kim Newman and Stephen Jones contribute a new audio commentary for this third film [The Climax]. If you've heard these gents before you'll know what to expect—lots of facts and opinion and occasional dashes of good-natured humour. There's talk about the cast and crew, the quality of Karloff's performance, other similar productions that the filmmakers had a hand in, the use of colour in the picture, comparisons to Phantom of the Opera and much more."
"The Climax gets a duet of Kim Newman and Stephen Jones. All the commentaries are very informative and add to the enjoyment of the films."
