Awesome DVD news!

Just found a link to this announcement on the Mobius Home Video board:

"As first teased here a few weeks ago by CHFB's own Gary Prange, word has come that indeed, Universal will be offering a new DVD set of Universal Horrors this fall. The set will include MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE, THE RAVEN, BLACK CAT, INVISIBLE RAY and BLACK FRIDAY.

It's unclear how the collection will be titled, but because Bela Lugosi is in all five films and Boris Karloff only four, there seems little chance this will be billed as a Boris/Bela collection. In fact, there's rumors the set title might tilt to Lugosi, which would cause considerable debate among Monster Kids. After all, Karloff co-stars in every film except RUE MORGUE. If that happens, it will be more proof that Bela still has star power, all these years later.

Substantial extras would be doubtful, given recent DVD offerings. Still, this latest collection shows the Universal vaults are not closed yet. And how often do we get to say...'Poor Boris.'

Aside from Invisible Ray and Black Friday, it could almost be an Edgar Allen Poe box.
