Friday Nostalgia




I grew up watching Friday Night Frights, the weekly double-feature horror movies on channel 17 (early Ted Turner), as well as all the weekly thriller series--Twilight Zone, Circle of Fear, The Sixth Sense--and the soap Dark Shadows. This 1973 horror film Theater of Blood, starring Vincent Price, was one of my all-time favorites. It's about an actor who takes revenge on his critics. It was truly sick.

Vincent Price is a god in my polytheistic world. I regret never meeting him.

V.P. was excellent, a horror icon! And his voice alone, like Boris Karloff, sells the scary aspect of any bit( "Thriller", "Welcome to my Nightmare"....).
Not only did I love "Theater of Blood", but that was favorite scene. Shakespeare was never quite the same, me thinks.
