7 Classic Universal Monster Movies Arriving on YouTube for Free
Universal Studios has produced some of the most iconic monster movies of all time. And now a handful of those will be arriving to watch for free on YouTube, starting Jan. 15.
The black-and-white flicks, which debuted decades ago (1930s and 1940s), have left an indelible mark on filmmaking and culture. Mythical creates only previously known in pages of fiction novels truly came to life, as did the art of special FX, while stirring uneasy emotions in views as they bore witness to some of the first monster/horror movies beyond the silent film era.
From Jan. 15 through Jan. 17, distributor NBCUniversal will release seven titles for free on YouTube's 'Fear: The Home of Horror' channel. Each will be available to watch for one week, during which a discounted purchase option will be available to viewers.
All movies will be released at 3PM ET on their respective days, and the release schedule can be viewed directly below.
Among the handful of titles are legendary films such as Dracula, starring famed actor Bela Lugosi, and The Mummy, which featured equally legendary star Boris Karloff.
