Scream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has confirmed that it plans to release a box set with classic Vincent Price films. The box set is expected to be available for purchase before Halloween.
Exact technical specs and supplemental features to be included with this upcoming release are yet to be revealed.

2. The Pit and the Pendulum (1961).
3. The Haunted Palace (1963).
3. The Masque of the Red Death (1964).
4. Witchfinder General - and its alternate U.S. version of the film, The Conqueror Worm (1968).
5. The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971).
Holy S@#t! I have been waiting years for these movies on Blu! Vincent Price is F@#kin' AMAZING! Looks like I am getting all my favorite films little by little on Blu! Let's get Dr. Goldfoot on Blu next!
Disney has already released Vincent, a Tim Burton short film with references to Vincent Price and is narrated by Vincent Price, question is when will The Thief and the Cobbler be in Blu-ray, it is already being made in the form of an HD Mark IV Recobbled Cut, you can view the unfinished Mark IV Recobbled Cut if you search ROUGH The Thief and the Cobbler Mark IV Recobbled Cut up in YouTube. Zigzag is voiced by Vincent Price.
Great News I think this little Price tidbit will go down a treat Robert Quarry [Count Yorga] was once singing around Price on the set of Dr Phibes Quarry said "You didn't know I could sing" Price retorted "No, but I knew you couldn't act!"
I wish Theatre Of Blood was in this collection as its close to my favorite Price
Sounds interesting. But my personal favorite Vincent role is on a Michael Jackson album.
Huggybear and Rockula, I bet you didn't know you suck because you're only interested in a few of those films didja? Rating systems on comment boards and forums seriously need to go.
Hey Tom Servo.
Thanks. But yeah, but I don't really care anyway. I don't understand the purpose of the rating system for people's comments. They're all just opinions anyway.
' I have all these Vincent Price movies and many more on DVD and this Blu two-version 'Witchfinder General' (which is already out in the U.K. on it's own).
It just happens that the two 'Phibes' movies are my favourites and it would've been nice to have both of them on Blu.
Nothing against this set but as I buy about 10 a week I have to prioritise.
Wow. I just ranted over at the thread about the newly announced Arrow releases (including House of Usher). I was lamenting the fact that they were region B. Now I find this news. The Corman laserdisc sets looked great for their time. I just hope Scream Factory does these justice.
To those of you jerks who want to wait for another release, Shout! Factory will only release another set if the sales of this one are good. Here's a bit of history to base this claim on: When the animated TV series Cops was released by Shout about 5 years ago. Not enough people bought the first few sets, so they didn't release the rest. Shout puts *a lot* of effort into their editions and they just couldn't afford to continue that series with the shit sales they had because of folks who were waiting. The fans ultimately had to wait 5 years for that series to be completed by Mill Creek. That is why you people *need* to buy this set if you want any more Vincent Price from Shout.
