THE PRICE IS FRIGHT: VINCENT PRICE CENTENNIAL

October 21 – 23, 2011

To generations of fans who squirm with delighted unease at the sound of his mellifluously sinister voice, Vincent Price (1911 - 1993) is one of the greatest icons in horror cinema. Through the 3-D terrors of HOUSE OF WAX, the delirious William Castle quickies of the late 1950s (THE TINGLER, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL), the gorgeous Roger Corman cycle of Poe adaptations in the 1960s (MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, THE RAVEN), to the campy terrors of the "Dr. Phibes" films (THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES) and beyond, Price perfected his own blend of murder, madness and mayhem, leavened with grace, style, a touch of sweetness and a good measure of humor. It’s no coincidence that one of Price’s favorite roles was as the demented Shakespearean actor wreaking vengeance on his critics in THEATER OF BLOOD.

Although Price was a great deal more than just a star of horror films, in his best horror roles he was unsurpassed. Join us as we celebrate what would be the centennial of Vincent Price’s birth with a program of his greatest chillers, which will also include WITCHFINDER GENERAL.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger and Gwen Deglise.
