    My family loved watching his movies on telly on Saturday nights. We thought they were pretty funny. Nowadays horror films run the gamut from satirical to truly haunting.

      Yes, today’s horror films do.

      I first watched Vincent Price movies back in the ’70s.

      There was a program called Fright Night that was on after midnight late Thursday night/ early Friday mornings.

      They used to show a lot of the American International Pictures horror films from the early ’60s that starred Vincent Price- a lot of them were adaptations of Poe stories.

      Later I saw some of his other horror films from the ’50s.

      Then when I got TCM, I saw some of the Film Noir movies from the 1940s that he starred in.

    Always be I remembered the first time I’d watched ‘The Last Man On Earth’. It was one the best childhood Memory of mine to watched Vincent Price’s movie back then, when it was White and black.

      Yes, that was an excellent film. 🙂

      I always liked those scenes where the zombie like vampires speaking in moronic voices (that sounded very much like those of Vancouver British Columbia potheads), “Morgan!”.
