Sounds like good news from Universal. After being in their vaults for a year or two they are rereleasing Frankenstein, Dracula, and Wolfman again. My only concern is that with each set, holding about 5 movies each on two discs, will the extras be included that were on the previous release? Any one in the know out there?
