Some of Universal’s most iconic monster movies will be making their way onto YouTube free for a limited time
The Universal Monster movies are back. Because starting on January 15th, a selection of the classic Universal Monster movies will be heading onto YouTube for a limited time. What’s more, the movies will be available to stream for free via the Fear: The Home of Horror channel. The movies available are:
January 15, 2021
Dracula (1931), The Mummy (1932)
January 16, 2021
Frankenstein (1931), Bride Of Frankenstein (1935)
January 17, 2021
The Invisible Man (1933), The Wolf Man (1941), Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
Each film will be available to watch for one week, and during that time fans will “have the opportunity to add the films to their digital collection at a discounted price”.
This is a wonderful idea from Universal. With so many of us being stuck at home, the timing couldn’t be better for us to immerse ourselves in some of Universal’s most beloved classics. And with the studio eager to re-launch their flailing monster verse – allowing us the chance to catch these movies for free is a masterstroke.
The move is bound to bring in a new generation of monster fans and spark fresh interest in many of Hollywood’s greatest cinematic icons. As a result, the monster verse could very well strike back in a big way.
