A Monstrous collection including 58 Stories and about 30 Hours of content
This very scary collection includes multiple versions of classic tales of Frankenstein, Dracula (featuring a restored version of Orson Welles' version), werewolves, mummies, and lots of other monsters, including a restored version of the radio adaptation of KING KONG which kinda misses the mark, but other stories such as "Three Skeleton Key," "The Golem," and "Spider" really score and give a good scare. The entire 13 chapter FRANKENSTEIN radio serial, which has a strong script, somewhat influenced by 19th century stage versions of the story as well as the novel, is included on this audio DVD, sounding better than it does elsewhere as it has been restored to remove hum and improve clarity. A rare H. P. Lovecraft radio adaptation, "The Dunwich Horror" is also included in this collection. (Note: One track, "The Werewolf," originally aired on the Witch's Tale program, is included even though sound quality is very rough even after restoration. For some reason I still find it intriguing, you can hear bits and pieces of scary dialogue which make you want to listen even closer. Anyway I didn't want to leave it out so there it is.) For more monster stories, see the MASTERS OF HORROR DVD which includes Basil Rathbone as the Phantom of the Opera, Lorre's version of "The Horla" and Karloff up to his old tricks bringing people back to life, etc.
