I don't know about you, but I have always loved Universal's classic monster movies. I was excited for the attempt to reboot them, just because I thought that was a fun idea. My heart lies with the black-and-white mayhem of yesteryear.
Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), The Wolf Man (1941), Bride Of Frankenstein (1935), and Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) all shaped the horror genre and influenced what came after them.
Well, now the movies are going to come to YouTube and stream for one week. They'll be staggered in their release, but this is a great time to catch up on some Hollywood history.
A secondary reason to be excited is that all the characters featured in these movies are in the public domain. So if you've ever wanted to riff on them or use them for inspiration, this is a perfect time.
They will debut on the YouTube account Fear: The Home of Horror beginning on Friday, Jan. 15 .
