Monsters: The Complete Series is coming to DVD

Last Updated on July 22, 2021

We all grew up with and love the classic shows "Tales From the Darkside", "The Twilight Zone" and "Tales from the Crypt", but there was another show that was a fan favorite in the late 80's and early 90's that is fondly remembered by many, and that was the syndicated horror anthology series "Monsters", from "Tales from the Darkside" producer Richard P. Rubinstein. Now the cult-fave anthology TV series that showcased a new creature every week is coming to disc at last in a Complete Series boxed set titled "Monsters: The Complete Series", and we've got some info on the release for ya below!

Entertainment One will release "Monsters: The Complete Series" next year on February 25 2014. The nine-DVD set will contain all 72 episodes of the show, which was originally syndicated from 1988-91 and has since enjoyed repeats on the Syfy and Chiller channels.

Executive-produced by Laurel Entertainment’s Richard P. Rubinstein, who was also behind TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE and several George A. Romero films, "Monsters" features actors like Lili Taylor, Steve Buscemi, Pam Grier, John Saxon, Debbie Harry, Tony Shalhoub, Adrienne Barbeau, Gina Gershon, Ashley Laurence, Jerry Stiller, Mary Woronov, Darren McGavin, Laraine Newman, Frank Gorshin and Meat Loaf and includes adaptations of such authors as Stephen King and Robert Bloch.

Horror anthology series from the executive producer of Tales from the Darkside featuring, as the title suggests, monsters of all varieties and every shape and size – ranging from the gruesome and grotesque to weapon-wielding-mutated lab rats – as the antagonist of each episode.

Special features for the boxed set, if any, have yet to be announced; retail price is $99.98. You can go ahead and pre-order this collection HERE, and take a look at the box art (via our brothers in blood at Fangoria) below!
