House of Wax, The Fly, House on Haunted Hill, and even Edward Scizzorhands had great appearances by him.
This is an original, plain white signature aganst black screen. Impressive if I do say so myself.

It's got to be Theatre Of Blood. His performance makes me feel sorry for the character despite the fact that he is a demented madman. Job well done.

I voted Phibes. He is just so amazingly awesome in that film, so it gets my vote.
A brass unicorn has been catapulted across a London street and impaled an eminent surgeon. Words fail me, gentlemen.

It's really hard to chose just one, but Dr. Phibes was an incredible character and a fantasitc movie. I'm convinced Vincent Price is good in just about any role, villian or hero or even just player like in the Black Cat.

Oh that was a tough call. I had it narrowed down to Witchfinder General, Theatre of Blood, House of Usher and Masque of the Red Death. In the end I went with Masque just because it's my favorite movie of the four (ALL of them are really great though).

Thumbs up

His Poe films are just OK imo...

His performance of shear epic reign will always be 'The Abominable Dr. Phibes.'

If I had a punk band, I prolly base the intro of my album on, oh wait..
80's Horror is my favorite Horror, always & forever.

I don't have one single favorite Price performance, it's nearly impossible to choose. Upon a recient viewing of The Haunted Palace, I was reminded of how his horror films have a kind of magic to them, much like the Universal, and Hammer Horror films, all, which I grew up on.

Thought that movie was pretty sweet too!

Is theater of blood worth checking out, and what is it even about?
