"Vincent Price Collection II" Coming to Blu-Ray This Halloween Season
Loaded with classic films such as Masque of the Red Death, The Abominable Dr. Phibes, and House of Usher, Scream Factory's "Vincent Price Collection" was probably the best blu-ray set of last year. Apparently, it was a success from a commercial standpoint too, because the company is planning to follow it up with a second volume this October. All specs have not been released yet, but according to blu-ray.com, the "Vincent Price Collection II" will include The Last Man on Earth, The Comedy of Terrors, Dr. Phibes Rises Again, Tomb of Ligeia, The Raven, Return of the Fly and The House on Haunted Hill. Dr. Phibes Rises Again, Tomb of Ligeia (Price's personal favorite of his Poe-based collaborations with Roger Corman), and William Castle's absolute classic House on Haunted Hill, a public domain film that has never been available in exceptional quality on home video before, might make this a keeper.
