I can’t think of a better time to be a horror fan than during the months of September and October. It’s when the studios try to capitalize on the spookiest time of year by releasing genre catalogue titles – many of them for the first time on DVD. That’s exactly what Warner Bros. has lined up with today’s announcement.
DVD Active reports that four Karloff and Lugosi classics will make their DVD bow on October 6, 2009. Warner Home Video has officially announced Karloff & Lugosi Horror Classics, which includes “The Walking Dead” (1936), “Frankenstein – 1970″ (1958), “You’ll Find Out” (1940), and “Zombies on Broadway” (1945). The 2-disc set should retail at around $26.98. The only extra material will be a commentary by historian Greg Mank on “The Walking Dead” and a commentary on “Frankenstein – 1970″ by historians Charlotte Austin and Tom Weaver.
Always nice to get some more golden era genre flicks on DVD, don’t you think?
