We’ve been fans of the Universal classic monster movies for years. Recently, we chronicled the entire timeline of the iconic monster movie franchises, which begins in 1870 with Dracula and ends in 1948 with Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. The three kings of horror: Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, and the Wolfman, all eventually collide into one another in the Universal Monster Cinematic Universe. The complete film collection will allow you to experience the grand scheme of these overlapping storylines!
The cunning history of cinema’s biggest monsters doesn’t end there. Lou Chaney Jr.’s masterful The Wolfman kicked off the whole concept of overlapping storylines. The movie was not only a box office success, but it introduced the idea of “universe-building” to Universal Studios. While today’s cinematic universes have been popularized due to Marvel and DC, both are highly indebted to Universal’s classic monster movie franchises, which first took the real risk of building a shared cinematic universe. The shift from episodic storytelling to simultaneous plot lines created an opportunity for richer, deeper movie experience.
