Shout! Factory Announces Vincent Price Blu-ray Collection
September 7, 2013

Just in time for Halloween, Shout! Factory has announced that their Scream Factory line will be releasing the Vincent Price Collection on Blu-ray on October 22.

The box set will include “the first-ever Blu-ray movie presentation of Fall of the House of Usher (1960), The Haunted Palace (1963), The Masque of the Red Death (1964), The Pit and the Pendulum (1961), Witchfinder General (1968), and The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971).” Right now, if you preorder directly from Shout!, you’ll get a better price than Amazon and an exclusive poster (limited to 100).

What I most appreciate about Shout!’s video releases is that they realize that many people who still buy DVDs or Blu-rays want extras to justify the purchase of the movie. In this case, they’ve found a well-stuffed list of special features, all the more thoughtful given the age of some of this material. All of the movies have theatrical trailers and still galleries of related images. Additionally,
