You can never have too many monsters.

Universal Studios will release another volume of its Icons of Horror Collection–with four more classic films making their debut in 4K Ultra HD–just in time for Halloween, according to a report on Collider.

Universal Classic Monsters: Icons of Horror Collection Volume 2–that includes The Mummy, Bride of Frankenstein, The Phantom of the Opera and Creature from the Black Lagoon–will be available Oct. 11.

The first volume of this series–released last Halloween–boasted Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and The Wolf Man.

The Mummy (1932)–directed by Karl Freund from a screenplay by John L. Balderston–stars Boris Karloff as Imhotep, an ancient Egyptian mummy who is accidentally brought back to life and searches for his long-lost love.

Bride of Frankenstein (1935)–directed by James Whale from a screenplay by William Hurlbut–stars Boris Karloff as the Monster and Elsa Lanchester as the titular character. The plot follows Henry Frankenstein as he is coerced into constructing a mate for the Monster.

The Phantom of the Opera (1925)–directed by Rupert Julian–stars Lon Chaney as the deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing mayhem–all in an attempt to make the women he loves a star.

Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)–directed by Jack Arnold from a screenplay by Harry Essex and Arthur Ross–follows a group of scientists who encounter an amphibious humanoid in the waters of the Amazon. The Creature (or Gill-Man) was played by Ben Chapman on land and by Ricou Browning underwater.
