We have made no secret of our love for classic horror movies here at AFJ. Scream Factory, our personal favorite is releasing yet another collection of classic, now Universal Studios, horror. Check out the details on their first volume (which means more, Junkies) of classic Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi pairings! #AFJ4LIFE

Press Release: Celebrating horror icons Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi, Scream Factory’s Universal Horror Collection Vol. 1 will be made available on Blu-ray™ on June 18, and is available now for pre-order. Loaded with new commentaries and featurettes, this collection includes The Black Cat (1934), The Raven, The Invisible Ray and Black Friday.


Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi created some of the most memorable performances in cinematic history. Their unforgettable performances as Dracula and Frankenstein’s monster terrified a generation of moviegoers and when these two legendary actors came together for a series of films in the 1930s, audiences could not get enough. Scream Factory now pays homage to these legendary actors with the first of two collections, presenting classic films with all the care that horror fans have come to expect from the brand.
