JFD640: House of Usher, The Haunted Palace, The Comedy of Terrors

It's the third week of Schlocktober and we're getting creepy with three 1960's gothic horrors from American International Pictures starring the King of Halloween, Vincent Price

Up first, Price plays a mysterious and afflicted man living in a cursed castle with his sister, but when the sister's lover comes calling all hell breaks loose in House of Usher from 1960, based on the story by Edgar Allan Poe.

Then, AIP combines mythology from H.P. Lovecraft and Poe in The Haunted Palace from 1963 about a man who inherits an old mansion from his long deceased relative, not knowing the secrets it and the town around it possess.

And finally, Price teams up with Peter Lorre as a couple of down on their luck funeral men who have to create customers, if you know what I mean, in the slapstick Comedy of Terrors from 1963, also starring Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone.

All this plus some brief Vegas chat, we announce the winner of the Kevin Moth statue, Sean dives even deeper in Vincent Price, hot Halloween records for your party, Terrifier 2 chat, some hot blu-rays to keep you entertained and so much more!
