Gli amanti dell’horror, ma anche gli appassionati di cinema in generale, non possono che gioire per l’uscita della Universal Classic Monsters – The Essential Collection, un cofanetto Blu-ray che contiene otto capolavori della “casa dei mostri”. Dracula, Frankenstein, L’uomo invisibile, La mummia, La moglie di Frankenstein, L’uomo lupo, Il mostro della laguna nera, Il fantasma dell’opera, ossia tutti i classici della prima vera e propria ondata del cinema horror. A parte la presentazione delle pellicole nella migliore versione possibile, quindi rimasterizzate in digitale, il boxset contiene una quantità di contenuti speciali, che da soli valgono l’acquisto. Tra le chicche assolute, la rarissima versione spagnola di Dracula e la versione 3D di Il mostro della laguna nera. Ogni film poi è accompagnato da commenti audio e vari documentari con approfondimenti specifici, che vanno dagli attori agli effetti speciali. In più, il cofanetto include un libretto di 48 pagine, locandine, repliche di corrispondenza e altro ancora. Un acquisto imperdibile. Disponibile dal 3 ottobre, giusto in tempo per Halloween!
