In celebration of the October 2nd Blu-ray release of the Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection from Universal Studios Home Entertainment, veteran horror historian Scott Essman has prepared a truly monstrous trip back through time for you classic horror fans!
For the first time ever eight of the most iconic cinematic masterpieces of the horror genre are available together on Blu-ray as Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection debuts on October 2, 2012, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
We love things that are in the "public domain". They allow artists to use existing art as a launching point for their own creations, and that's never a bad thing in our book. Case in point: Dallas-based industrial twosome Frausun have created an original score to accompany Lon Chaney's classic The Phantom of the Opera. After performing the score live at popular Dallas venue La Grange, they have now released the film complete with the new score.
Texas has become a hotbed of horror, and Dallas is the epicenter. With the massive haunt season just kicking off this weekend, it's only appropriate that one of DFW's coolest venues hosts a night of classic horror. La Grange, in the historic Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, is hosting a double-feature this Thursday, September 15th, that genre fans in the area won't want to miss.
