Yea, me too. It was a great ride while it lasted. I traded off many of my LDs but kept all the monster ones.
  Good call! The artwork alone is worth the spot in the collection. They may one day be sought after like those old projector films.

So, why didn't RED PLANET MARS, THE BEAST OF HOLLOW MOUNTAIN, or THE MANSTER get released on an MGM (or Midnite Movies) DVD?

Great question, Mike. I backed those up with a DVD burner, in case the LD player gives up the ghost. Another one is Magnetic Monster, which is available as one of those on-demand no-frills DVD-R's. That one's a fave, since I sat mesmerized by it as it aired on Armchair Playhouse when I was a pup. A few years ago I snagged a set of the lobby cards...

Even though I have that and the GOG MOD and a home made RIDERS TO THE STARS DVD-R, I would love to see a set of those three on pressed DVDs!

Some of that art was also used on the laserdiscs...

I took the images for House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula from the LD cover. Unfortunately the image wasn't as clear as I hoped which is why there a tad fuzzy. Still nice in the meantime until I find better ones.

Well I sent someone over at HorrorTalk a message to see if by any chance he had any more of these pictures since he had the Black Cat and Raven pics that I later posted here. No luck. He just sent me a link to the other reviews on the site about the DVDs that were recently produced by the company that issued those Black Cat and Raven DVDs in the UK. Well I'll keep looking. If anything turns up for anyone be sure to check back.

Man, I'd love a room with that artwork wall to wall!

Well as I continue my search for more logo free renderings, here's all the covers as we know them. :)

Don't think I ever saw the Sp. Dracula VHS box before? Thanks!

Wow, 37! I had no idea. I wish I would have picked these up when they were around. Wasn't "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein" available in this series?

No unfortunately none of the Abbott and Costello monster films were featured in this collection. However here's a fan renderings I did a few months ago of what it may have looked like if A&C meet Frankenstein and A&C meet the Mummy may have looked like if they had been part of this collection. The first one was a collaboration between me and my friend Ansel. The last two I did myself using the artworks that were used for the early 1990s VHS' of those films.

Not a Universal film but I always thought the VHS cover to House of Wax had a very Classic Collection look to it.

Island of Lost Souls again. I had this posted previously in black and white and a colorized version done by a friend of mine. Here it is unaltered with the original colors.
