(The Price of Fright)
Tonight, Turner Classic Movies features another slew of films
in which Vincent Price chews more scenery than a zombie can chew brains!
And it's all horror, all the time too!
It is impossible to go wrong with any of these films but I do want to let you know, dear reader, that this Goods Guy would more likely recommend HOUSE OF USHER, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL or THE RAVEN.
In USHER, Price's character takes a journey from refined, reserved and restrained to manically mad, madman and it is a pleasure to watch him bloom!
HAUNTED HILL is full of character intrigue as one wonders what to think of Price's character and his wager with those who are willing to stay locked in his house.
THE RAVEN is equal parts Dr. Strange, Edgar Allen Poe and all the while we have Price matching wits with Karloff all the while poor Peter Lorre tries to wiggle his way out of the whole situation.
HOUSE OF WAX
