Film information

Story: Collection of six classic Universal Monster movies. In 'Dracula' 1931), estate agent Renfield (Dwight Frye) travels to Transylvania to arrange the sale of an English mansion to nobleman Count Dracula (Bela Lugosi). When Renfield discovers that his host is a 500-year-old vampire, he is bitten and himself enslaved. After arriving in London, Dracula attempts to get his teeth into Mina Seward (Helen Chandler), an innocent maiden betrothed to Jonathan Harker (David Manners). Vampire expert Professor Van Helsing (Edward van Sloan) attempts to put a stop to the bloodsucking. In 'Dracula's Daughter' (1936), vampire-hunter Dr Van Helsing (van Sloan) believes that he has rid London of the undead when he finds himself unexpectedly arrested for murder. A series of bodies have been found drained of all blood, and their discovery coincides with the arrival in the city of the mysterious Countess Marya Zaleska (Gloria Holden), who has been to Van Helsing's psychiatrist, Dr Garth (Otto Kruger) for consultation. From her strange behaviour Garth and Van Helsing deduce that the countess is a vampire, and are forced to trail her to Transylvania when she kidnaps Garth's beautiful fiancée. In 'Son of Dracula' (1943), Katherine (Louise Allbritton) is a student of the occult, fascinated by Count Alucard (Lon Chaney Jr), who has recently moved to her home town in the south of the US. Katherine secretly begins dating Alucard, eventually marrying him. But when she begins to look and act strangely, her former boyfriend Frank (Robert Paige) suspects that something is wrong. In 'House of Frankenstein' (1944), when Dr. Niemann (Boris Karloff) escapes from the mental asylum in which he is being held, he awakens Count Dracula (John Carradine), the Wolf Man (Chaney Jr) and the Frankenstein monster (Glenn Strange) as he looks to gain revenge on his many enemies. In 'House of Dracula' (1945), Count Dracula (Carradine) arrives at the laboratory of Dr Edelman, claiming to seek a cure for his vampirism, but in fact eager to turn Edelman's beautiful assistant into his vampire bride. At the same time, a wretched Wolf Man Larry Talbot (Chaney Jr) asks Edelman to bring his lycanthropy to an end. The first attempt to cure Talbot fails, and he throws himself off a cliff in a bid to commit suicide. This attempt fails, but leads him to an underground cavern where he discovers the monster (Strange) created years before by Dr Frankenstein... In 'Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein' (1948), baggage clerks Bud (Bud Abbott) and Lou (Lou Costello) find themselves in hot water when they lose a mysterious shipment en route to the House of Horrors. It transpires that the missing crates contained the remains of Count Dracula (Lugosi) and Frankenstein's monster (Strange), and have now been diverted to the island hideaway of a crazed scientist who wishes to revive the monsters The inept duo head off to the island to avert disaster, but will the arrival of the Wolfman (Chaney Jr) prove to be a help or a hindrance?
