The Monster Collection Available July 13

A creature double-feature from the depths of the drive-in, The Monster Collection features two impressively comprehensive documentaries by Alexandre Poncet and Gilles Penso, Phil Tippett: Mad Dreams and Monsters, a portrait of the man behind some of the most recognizable movie creatures of the modern era, and The Frankenstein Complex, profiling the workaday wizards who turn rubber, latex, and resin into cinema’s most memorable and terrifying creations. Extensive interviews with genre luminaries Rick Baker, Joe Dante, Guillermo Del Toro, John Landis, Dennis Muren, and Paul Verhoeven illuminate the evolution of special effects and stop motion animation in such classics as Star Wars, An American Werewolf in London, Gremlins, Robocop, Jurassic Park, and Starship Troopers. This collector’s set includes hours of exclusive bonus features, including new audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, extended interviews segments, galleries, and rare short films from Phil Tippett.

STARRING: Phil Tippett, Joe Dante, Rick Baker, Paul Verhoeven, Jon Davison
