With the imminent arrival of The Mummy, Universal are really gearing up for their MCU, or should I say rebirth of the first MCU - Monster Cinematic Universe.

With the trailer announcement, they really are acknowledging their past, and even embracing it, as well as sell more products of course.

Well, except for Dracula: Untold.

Common wisdom seems to be that the classic era of Universal horror only lasted from the early 1930s until the mid-1940s, but while the studio's recent attempts to launch their inter-connected 'Dark Universe' has so far resulted in two expensive misfires, the truth is that Universal rarely stopped making horror films. Some people forget that Paula Dupree (three movies, 1943 - 1945), The Creeper (three movies, 1945 - 1946), The Spider Woman (two movies, 1943 - 1946), The Creature from the Black Lagoon (three movies, 1954 - 1956) and Darkman (three movies and a failed TV pilot, 1990 - 1996) were all Universal characters. So too were the various Great Whites in the Jaws saga (four movies, 1975 - 1987). The studio also now owns the rights to Chucky (seven movies, 1988 - present), the Tremors series (six movies and a TV series, 1990 - present) and the Death Race series (six movies, 1975 - present). And although their Wolf Man remake (2010) was a box office disappointment, it still spawned direct-to-DVD follow-up Werewolf: The Beast Among Us (2012).

Recently, Universal have also quietly created another franchise. Dead in Tombstone (2013) starred Danny Trejo as resurrected gunslinger Guerrero, tasked by the Devil (Mickey Rourke!!) to kill every outlaw in the West so Hell can have their souls all the sooner;


And now comes a sequel;

Following the false start of Dracula Untold, the box office disappointment of The Mummy appears to have killed off Universal's 'Dark Universe' at birth;

Now confirmed, the Dark Universe is dead.
