Format: Blu-ray
A Vincent Price six pack has made its way to Blu-Ray. The set features some of the actor’s most iconic roles, along with at least one surprise inclusion. It is by no means a complete collection, as it concentrates primarily on the late actor’s work with Roger Corman and AIP (since most of these movies were adapted from works by Edgar Allan Poe they are known as the “Poe cycle”). Even by that criteria, the collection is a mere introduction.

Price cemented his status as horror icon in Andre De Toth’s House of Wax (1953), despite the fact that that this 3D box office hit is a flat and unimaginative remake of Michael Curtiz’ vastly superior Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933). In a way, this parallels Price himself. Although he has been beatified by genre aficionados, and despite doing occasionally fine acting work, Price’ carefully crafted screen persona seems more derivative than innovative. That persona lacks the authenticity of a Lon Chaney, Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, or Dwight Frye. The passage of time makes that even more apparent. Still, the veteran actor could often supply a luster to pedestrian productions, without necessarily redeeming them.

Fortunately, this Blu Ray collection, although somewhat haphazard in concept and packaging, is a marketable compilation in a “Vincent Price’s Greatest Hits Volume One” style. Like most such compilations, the choices deemed “greatest” are not without debate.

With The Fall of the House of Usher (1960) Roger Corman convinced AIP to give him an increased budget of $270,000 (which included color film) along with an extended shooting schedule ( a whole 15 days). Convincing the producers was no simple feat, as the film, with a literary source, lacked a identifiable “monster.” Somehow, Corman won Samuel Z. Arkoff and James H.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Vincent Price was for many the face of camp horror, and this set collects six of his movies spanning just over a decade. All are presented in their original ratios and from what can only be described as excellent prints

Not having seen the Corman Poe and Lovecraft films for many years, I was surprised that rather than go for the overt shock and gore angle they are sedate and build up dread and fear (with a splash of blood here and there for good measure)

The Abominable Dr Phibes is my favourite of the bunch and has long sat on my shelf in its various VHS and DVD incarnations. The latest print though the worst of the six films for speckling - is superb and lush. Its a great pity that Shout did not go a little extra on digital clean up as, although very mild, the white flecks on the picture are disappointing though not enough to lose the release its top score.

Extras include some very erudite commentaries from directors of the films to interested parties (such as the author Justin Humphreys whose book on Phibes is due in 2014) and several actors including Ian Ogilvy. The icing on the cake are some 1982 PBS introductions recorded by Price for the (what must have been a tiny) audience in part of Iowa.

A rare TV prologue to Pit and the Pendulum is included here too

Overall I would say that Shout (Scream) Factory is one of THE leading labels for these vintage releases

BUYER BEWARE THESE DISCS ARE REGION LOCKED as are most of Shout's catalogue, to the USA

What's in it.... 2 July 2013
By Bobby Brady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
1. The Fall of House of Usher a.k.a House of Usher (1960).
2. The Pit and the Pendulum (1961).
3. The Haunted Palace (1963).
4. The Masque of the Red Death (1964).
5. Witchfinder General - and its alternate U.S. version of the film, The Conqueror Worm (1968).
6. The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971).

Thought I'd provide what Amazon hasn't. Maybe Shout! Factory hasn't made anything official.

The sequel to Phibes would be nice. Seems incomplete without it. Of course, you could list The Raven, A Comedy of Terrors (* looks at watch *) well... many more. But not a bad looking set if this is what it ends up being.

(will replace this with a review when it comes out and I can afford to get it)

The Price is right! 22 Oct. 2013
By Jobla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful collection of Vincent Price horror classics. These versions have superior color to previous home video versions. In the case of THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM, this transfer corrects an earlier, flawed DVD edition.

The supplements are a real treat in this set. Most of the films have rare Vincent Price intros and outros that were filmed for an Iowa PBS TV station in the 1980's, which haven't been widely available before. THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM has a rare prologue that was filmed for the movie's premiere on network television in the late 1960's. In fact, the version of that prologue found in this set is more complete than the earlier release of it on MGM DVD.

There are also some interviews and/or audio commentaries with director Roger Corman, Price himself, Price's daughter Victoria Price, and authors Tom Weaver and Price biographer Lucy Chase Williams. There's quite a bit of new material contained in the supplements, even for those who are habitual devotees of these films.

To those who are complaining about some "missing" titles, many of the titles they cite are actually the property of other studios. For example, Warner owns HOUSE OF WAX (available on Blu-ray), Fox owns THE FLY (available on Blu-ray), Sony/Columbia owns THE TINGLER (available on DVD), and HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL might be public domain. This set is a collection of films that Price did for American-International Pictures.

All in all, a great production from Shout Factory!

Best way to view these films, but not quite what we wanted! 25 Oct. 2013
By Classis Genre Film Fanatic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Let me just preface this review in saying that I love these films, and this set provides THE best way available for viewing them. It even includes nice "video bookends" by Vincent Price (via Iowa Public Television) where he provides both an introduction to the films (5 out of the 6 anyway), as well as some closing words at the end. Even though these bookends weren't restored, it is still totally awesome to have Vincent Price himself introduce these films to us, any time we want!

However, the main items on this set, being the films themselves, were not given proper restoration. Not sure if SHOUT! couldn't afford to restore them, or didn't have permission, but it is a shame that the films were not given the same treatment as the Universal Monster films that were released in 2012 on Blu-ray. The films on the Vincent Price set still have visible film scratches, and the colors are slightly faded.

But like I said, simply releasing these on Blu-ray does provide us with the clearest prints to date. Plus, Pit and the Pendulum is finally in ANAMORPHIC widescreen, which is great. I do wish that Dr. Phibes Rises Again was included, instead of Witchfinder General (not that big of a fan), to go along with The Abominable Dr. Phibes on this set. Seems incomplete without it. Maybe they're saving it for a Volume 2?

Definitely worth picking up for fans of these films, even if you already own them on DVD. I just wish the films were properly restored, and that Dr. Phibes Rises Again was included.

Great Box-Set! 20 Oct. 2013
By NiceFriendly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Received my Vincent Price Box Set set today directly from the Scream Factory and saved some money along the way - $ 10 to be exact. The quality of the films is fantastic. I was waiting a long time to see Vincent Price on Blu-Ray. I sincerely hope that someone will put out some more of his films on Blu-Ray, especially his best film "Theatre of Blood" and the second Dr. Phibes movie. He was a great actor and I wish there would be more actors around like him these days. But hey, who needs to know how to act with all those "special effects" these days?
