    The Universal double feature DVDs (mostly sequels to the classic monster collection) has been OOP for a little while (and goes for around $35-40 on eBay). Anyone knows if Universal will re-release them anytime soon (maybe with a lover MSRP)?

    We are all wishing.. but I think we will see the ones that have not been released at all (Creature and Invisible man sequels, for example) before we see re-releases of ones OOP. (just my opinion)

    No one (as far as I know) has heard anything current about any Universal Classic Horror pictures being released in the forseeable future.

    I really want to get "Werewolf of London" ! Some months ago I had it in my hands, and ended up not getting it. Now I regret it...

    Didn't they fold some of those titles into the new LEGACY box sets ? Of course,if you're looking for these as a collectable I guess that wouldn't help you .

    All of the movies that were on the double bills are in the new sets. However, the packaging on them was far better, imo.

    Anyway, the sets were:

    Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man/House of Frankenstein
    The Ghost of Frankenstein?Son of Frankenstien
    Dracula's Daughter/Son of Dracula
    Werewolf of London/She-Wolf of London
    The Mummy's Hand/The Mummy's Tomb
    The Mummy's Ghost/The Mummy's Curse

    Is this line (Universal Monster Double Features) finished? Seems like all six are OOP so its hard to imagine them adding more titles to it.

    Yeah - I can't imagine they'd go back to this format, we have to put up with the ugly green things I'm afraid.

    Oh well, too bad. I liked the format.

    Since you posted the list of what had been put out I've been able to pick them all up except fo Ghost of Frankenstein/Son of Frankenstein for $10 -$12 each!

    As do I.

    I still refuse to buy the Dracula Legacy set *just* for House of Dracula though. That pisses me off to no end.

    I picked up the Creature and Invisible man sets as none of the sequels were available before on R1 DVD

    I did, just for House of Dracula. I don't know if this helps, but I'm not sure I'm pleased I did. It's quite awful. Sure, you can laugh at it, but trust me, you're not missing much, it is easily one of the weaker Universal horrors.

    I bought the Legacy Collection box set (preorder) and sold the old ones at Ebay when they were still darn expensive. It was a good purchase, I don´t regret it.

    Anyone other than me not like the bland monochrome packaging on the Legacy Collection?

    --Anyone other than me not like the bland monochrome packaging on the Legacy Collection?--

    As I mentioned earlier in the thread, they covers are horrid. Other have said they like them, which I put down to yet another mystery in the universe that will never get solved. Members complain if they don't get theatrical art, but then when it comes to Universal features, metallic green headshots - looking very much like the posters for those teen horror flicks - are okay.

    :rolleyes:
