Vincent Price Thriller

Price's first venture into the horror genre, for which he later became widely known, was in the Boris Karloff film Tower of London (1939). The following year, Price portrayed the title character in The Invisible Man Returns (a role he reprised in a voice-only cameo in the closing scene of the horror-comedy spoof Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein released in 1948).[15] He reunited with Tierney in Leave Her to Heaven (1945) and Dragonwyck (1946). He also had many villainous roles in film noir thrillers such as The Web (1947), The Long Night (1947), Rogues' Regiment (1948), and The Bribe (1949), with Robert Taylor, Ava Gardner, and Charles Laughton.

Price was active in radio, portraying the Robin Hood-inspired crime-fighter Simon Templar in The Saint, which ran from 1947 to 1951. In the 1950s, Price moved into more regular horror-film roles with the leading role in House of Wax (1953) as a homicidal sculptor,[16] the first three-dimensional film to land in the year's top 10 at the North American box-office. His next roles were The Mad Magician (1954), the monster movie The Fly (1958), and its sequel Return of the Fly (1959). That same year, Price starred in two thrillers by producer-director William Castle: House on Haunted Hill as eccentric millionaire Fredrick Loren, and The Tingler as Dr. Warren Chapin, who discovered the titular creature. He appeared in the radio drama Three Skeleton Key, the story of an island lighthouse besieged by an army of rats. He had first performed the work in 1950 on Escape and returned to it in 1956 and 1958 for Suspense.[17]

Narration : Darkness falls across the land / The midnight hour is close at hand / Creatures crawl in search of blood / To terrorize y'all's neighbourhood / And whosoever shall be found / Without the soul for getting down / Must stand and face the hounds of hell / And rot inside a corpse's shell. / The foulest stench is in the air / The funk of 40,000 years / And grizzy ghouls from every tomb / Are closing in to seal your doom / And though you fight to stay alive / Your body starts to shiver / For no mere mortal can resist / The evil of the thriller.

The foulest stench is in the airThe funk of forty-thousand yearsAnd grizzly ghouls from every tombAre closing in to seal your doomAnd though you fight to stay aliveYour body starts to shiverFor no mere mortal can resistThe evil of the thriller

The list of horror movies price appears in is extensive and even if we only focus on the iconic roles we could still write an entire book about his career. To list a few, he was in The Fly, Return of the Fly, House on Haunted Hill, The Tingler, The Last Man on Earth (which was remade later with Will Smith as I Am Legend), Witchmaster General, and Theater of Blood. Before he had become iconically attached to the genre, Price also reprised his role as The Invisible Man for a cameo in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

Price soon moved into playing the villain in several films and turned in strong performances in straight dramas, notably in Otto Preminger's "Laura" (1944), opposite Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews, and Anatole Litvak's "The Long Night" (1947). Price continued to play the heavy in noirs like "The Web" (1947), "Rogue's Regiment" (1948) and "The Bribe" (1949), before landing the lead role of a conman and expert forger in "The Baron of Arizona" (1950). Following supporting roles in "His Kind of Woman" (1951) and "The Las Vegas Story" (1952), Price became almost exclusively associated with the horror genre, thanks to his role as the revenge-driven sculptor in the 3-D classic of the macabre, "House of Wax" (1953), a film with which he was indelibly entwined for the rest of his career, and that led to starring roles in other horror pictures like "The Mad Magician" (1954). He next supported Victor Mature and Piper Laurie in the noir thriller "Dangerous Mission" (1954), and had a cameo as the real Casanova in the Bob Hope comedy "Casanova's Big Night" (1954). After turns in Howard Hughes' troubled production "Son of Sinbad" (1955) and Fritz Lang's "While the City Sleeps" (1956), his theatrical flair was also put to good use as the villainous Baka in Cecil B. DeMille's epic remake of his "The Ten Commandments" (1956), starring Charlton Heston and Yule Brynner.

Price next starred opposite Sam Waterston and Donald Pleasence in the thriller "Journey into Fear" (1975) and joined the all-star cast of the spoof "Scavenger Hunt" (1979), which featured an ensemble cast that included Tony Randall, Cloris Leachman, Roddy McDowall, James Coco and Ruth Gordon. In the late-1970s, Price found the horror movies were not as popular as they once were and began shifting toward more voiceover work, having already been noted for his rarified diction tinged with a hint of malice. He also found his career to be winding down just a bit, and thus made fewer appearances as he had in the past. In 1981, he began serving an eight-year stint as the urbane, gently sinister host of the PBS series "Mystery!" (1980-88), which showcased adaptations of famed horror stories. At the same time, he was contacted for his services by two self-avowed Vincent Price fans. First, Price was asked to narrate up-and-coming filmmaker Tim Burton's stop-motion short, "Vincent" (1982), as well as supplied the spoken word narration for Michael Jackson's landmark song and video "Thriller" (1983). He next appeared onscreen opposite old friend Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing in the horror spoof "House of the Long Shadows" (1983), and followed that with a turn in the over-the-top "Bloodbath at the House of Death" (1984). 59ce067264
