RIP Vincent Price | 20 years ago today we lost a legend!




It was on October 23 1993, 20 years ago today, that we lost a legend - Vincent Price, and what better way to celebrate his life and career than in the timely release of The Vincent Price Collection on Bu-ray. While us in the UK will be waiting for the eventual release this side of the pond, US fans and those lucky enough to own multi-player systems can savour four Corman/Poe films as well two ultimate classics, Witchfinder General and The Abominable Dr Phibes from October 22 2013. Available from Amazon or direct from Shout! Factory. Here's what's also included alongside the pristine HD prints of the films.
