THE PRICE IS FRIGHT: VINCENT PRICE CENTENNIAL
Vincent Price Double Feature!
THEATER OF BLOOD / WITCHFINDER GENERAL
THEATER OF BLOOD
1973, MGM Repertory, 104 min, UK, Dir: Douglas Hickox

A tour-de-force for Vincent Price as a Shakespearean actor who uses "thematic" murder methods to dispose of the critics who’ve panned his stage portrayals. Featuring a Who’s Who of great British acting talent, including Diana Rigg, Ian Hendry, Jack Hawkins, Robert Morley and Price’s wife, Coral Browne.


WITCHFINDER GENERAL
1968, MGM Repertory, 98 min, UK, Dir: Michael Reeves

Although he made only four features before his tragic death at age 25, British director Michael Reeves left an indelible mark on Gothic horror with his brooding tales of madness and hysteria. Vincent Price stars here in one of his most brutally terrifying roles, as real-life witch-hunter Matthew Hopkins, dedicated to ridding England of suspected satanists and instead falling prey to his own horrifying, repressive methods. Ian Ogilvy co-stars as a young soldier trying to end Hopkins’ reign of terror.
