Tarantula comes as part of The Classic SciFi Ultimate Collection

For years fans have hoped that Universal would finally release some more of their golden age 50s science fiction films, especially Jack Arnold’s 1955 classic, Tarantula. The wait is finally coming to an end as Universal Home entertainment just unveiled The Classic SciFi Ultimate Collection which will be released on September 19.

The DVD set will contain “Tarantula, The Mole People, The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Monolith Monsters and Monster On The Campus. Universal has not yet revealed exact details about each of the films, such as special features, but with a low $19.98 sticker price, I would not expect too much in terms of extras.

Still, this is a venerable Jack Arnold celebration and I have no doubts that fans of the genre will dig these films up with eager anticipation. I know, I will. We will, of course, keep you up to date as soon as additional information becomes available.
