Dead Men Walk(1943)
The generic monster faces on the are a little disappointing.

I'm okay with it.  They look like Monster Squad monsters.  Definitely better than the stock art!  I'd like to own this.

When it comes to the gothic, old world, steampunk era classics, I'm right there with you.

But a fresh, present-day science take on invisibility could be interesting.  Something between the chemically-induced invisibility of Claude Rains and the electronic clarity of The Philadelphia Experiment might actually be interesting - in the right hands.

"Hollow Man" wasn't all bad.

I think a modern Invisible Man could work well, but I can't imagine versions of a lot of the other Universal Monsters set in the modern day that wouldn't come across as kinda silly. Maybe the Creature from the Black Lagoon or Wolf Man. For instance, I don't think you could do a Dracula or Frankenstein set in the modern day, without having to completely change their Universal designs. Otherwise I think it would just come across as silly. My ideal movies would be similar to the Penny Dreadful TV series from a few years ago.  Set in the Victorian era, but with a modern style and sensibility. 
A Universal Monsters Board Game called "Horrified" is coming out this August. Looks pretty cool, based on the limited information provided. Details here:

Holy, wow!! I f***** want and need THAT figure! It will go great with my Reaction Eddie, Crimson Ghost(MISFITS) and my Bif Bang Pow KISS figures.

I agree Mars. I have the Kiss Dynasty set from that line and they go perfect with the Reaction rock n roll monster figures.

The slayer, misfits, and Eddie figures are based on album covers. Along those line I hope they release a witch figure from first Black Sabbath record. I would pass out from happiness if that happened. In terms of actual people, like the King Diamond figure, I hope they release Alice Cooper and Lemmy figures.
