This is amazing. I’ve only ever heard about these films but have never seen them.
"Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them." - Ishiro Honda

Oh, I know it's in May; I just want to know when in May. UPDATE: Never mind; I just checked the Facebook announcement and it said either the 14th or the 15th.

Is it dubbed as well, or only subbed?

Anyone seen these movies and can give an opinion on them?

If you look at the first post above, it'll be newly-translated English subtitles.

I saw that part, I was asking if there were any dubs as well.

I think not. According to Arrow's website, the only "language" audio on it is Japanese. So, I'd assume there is no dub present.

The fact that the dubs to Lake and Evil don't seem to be included is pretty disappointing.

That's a shame. I don't need dubs, but they are appreciated.
Anyone know how this compares to the Hammer films and other vampire flicks of the era? I have a soft spot for those sort of films.

The Hammer films are superior. I'd still pick up the set. An interesting Japanese take on the vampire genre

LAKE and EVIL apparently do have their dubs:
