The Invisible Woman isn't either.

Yes, but it is about an invisible person, unlike INVISIBLE RAY (which is not about an invisible guy named "Ray").

SHE WOLF OF LONDON has no actual werewolf, but gets included in the WM set because you don't really know that till the end. ;D

The one you don't have is Invisible Ray but they didn't even release that in the line.

I actually have the artwork for Invisible Ray posted in my original thread 'Classic Collection Artwork!!'. :)

Seems like that one was in their sci-fi collection line?

No it was a stand alone but since I had found the artwork I figured I'd post it. Haha

Well good news is I know the magazine that had the A&C Monsters VHS set that had the early '90s tapes plus Meet the Killer Boris Karloff. It was the 2003 edition of Critics Choice Big Book of Movies. Sad news is I still havent found it. :(

Something I'm amazed is I've found many of the arts for the sequels to a lot of films but not the original films. Put it this way. I thought I would have found Frankenstein before I found House of Frankenstein!

Kinda makes sense to me.  There must be many collectors who would like to get a copy of the artwork for the original films - but far fewer who want them all enough to spend the necessary money.  Economics.  (Or just smaller fan base.)

Funny enough I had a dream last night that I found a B&W copy of The Wolf Man artwork on some website. Might be time for me to get hunting again ;)

I wish I still had it but about 12 or 13 years ago we got a video catalog in the mail (might have been Movies Unlimited, not sure. I remember there was an image from Some Like It Hot on the cover) which had an Abbott & Costello Monsters VHS set. It wasn't the same set released around 2000. This set had the tapes from the early 1990's and also had Meet The Killer Boris Karloff!


Old news but anyways I found the magazine. It was a 2003 edition of Critics Choice Big Book of Movies. Anyways heres the set I was talking about. Never seen this set outside of this magazine.

A collection that finally includes Killer!
though "finally" is the wrong words as this was probably next to the first collection (besides laser-disc)

Those VHS box sets were the absolute coolest from back in the day.
Listen to them. Children of the Night. What music they make!

I wish it had been in the "Meet the Monsters" DVD set.  :(
