Just in time for the Halloween season, Peacock has picked up a whole raft of classic Universal monster movies from the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and 60s.
The classics include monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, and The Invisible Man, among others. Not every movie from these quintessential franchises is available on Peacock, which is surprising considering the rights shouldn’t be that complicated to sort out, but here’s the list of titles that are available:
- The Bride of Frankenstein, 1935
- Dracula’s Daughter, 1931
- Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, 1943
- The Invisible Man, 1933
- The Invisible Man Returns, 1940
- The Invisible Woman, 1940
- The Invisible Man’s Revenge, 1944
- It Came From Outer Space, 1953
- The Mummy, 1932
- The Mummy’s Curse, 1944
- The Mummy’s Ghost, 1944
- The Mummy’s Hand, 1940
- The Mummy’s Tomb, 1942
- Night Monster, 1942
- Phantom of the Opera, 1943
- The Phantom of the Opera, 1962
- Son of Dracula, 1943
- Son of Frankenstein, 1939
- Werewolf of London, 1935
The classic Bride of Frankenstein makes for a great starting point. And while the original versions of Frankenstein or Dracula are not part of the package, this entire collection of “Creature Features” type movies will make for a perfect night of popcorn and old-school scares during the chilling October nights leading up to Halloween.
Peacock is a subscription video streaming service from NBCUniversal that gives access to up to 15,000 hours of content including original shows, blockbuster movies, and classic television series.
Just like other streaming services, Peacock will have their own original series including reboots of Save By The Bell, Punky Brewster, and Battlestar Galactica. They also have shows like Rutherford Falls (Ed Helms), Dr. Death (Alec Baldwin), and a behind-the-scenes docs-series about Saturday Night Live.
The company has acquired the rights to many classic shows like the entire Dick Wolf library including Law & Order and Chicago Fire, Parks and Recreation, and The Office.
The service will also feature blockbusters and critically-acclaimed films from Universal Pictures, Focus Features, DreamWorks Animation, Illumination and content acquired from Hollywood’s biggest studios.
