The holiday shopping season officially kicks off tonight and we know it can be difficult to find presents for horror fans that seem to have everything. To help make things easier, we’ve put together the initial list of our holiday gift suggestions, which include cannibal wine, classic horror shirts, vinyl figures and Blu-ray collections.
While a handful of these items are only available at select websites, you should be able to find some pretty good sales on other items starting tonight. Specifically, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart will have big sales on Blu-ray/DVD titles and video games. We’d like to give Tamika Jones a big thanks for helping put this guide together.

Chicago – Scream Factory continues to impress with one of the most essential box sets of 2013 for horror fans — “The Vincent Price Collection,” featuring complete remasters of six of the legendary actor’s most beloved films along with hours of archival and new special features. The bonus material is cool but, as with a lot of these Scream Factory releases, it’s the HD remastering that is truly breathtaking. I don’t believe “The Pit and the Pendulum” looked this well-mixed in terms of color and shadow when it was released fifty years ago. It’s a great holiday season option for horror fans.
Most of the films in the collection are from Price’s Poe period with Roger Corman, including one of his absolute best, 1961’s “The Pit and the Pendulum.” It’s the stand-out in this release but every film gets the same HD treatment and the special features are excellent, »

Most horror freaks are very familiar with Roger Corman often because of the goofy horror movies from the family video stores in the olden days of Bmovies. Younger fans might know Coreman as the producer of the original Piranha that later became a couple of successful remakes or perhaps from his successful cult films The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) Swamp Women (1965) or his many Edgar Allan Poe adaptations including The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) The Raven (1963) The Haunted Palace (1963)and a host of others most of which starred the iconic horror figure Vincent Price. »
We’re almost done with our Vincent Price trailer spotlight, but weren’t going to stop without featuring The Fly. Here’s a look at the original trailer and we’ve also included some high-resolution promotional photos that we featured earlier this year:
“When a scientist (David Hedison) attempts to transfer matter through space, things go horrifically wrong and two grotesque man-fly hybrids are created. Now, with the head of a fly and a wing in place of one of his arms, the scientist desperately hopes that he, his wife (Patricia Owens) and his brother (Vincent Price) can capture the other mutant and reverse the experiment.”

One of the more obscure anthology horror movies is 1981′s The Monster Club, which not only stars Vincent Price, but also features performances from Donald Pleasence, John Carradine and Britt Ekland. Continuing our Vincent Price trailer spotlight, here’s the original trailer for The Monster Club:
“Horror anthology loosely based on the works of horror novelist R. Chetwynd-Hayes. A horror author is invited by a suave vampire (Vincent Price) to accompany him to the title establishment, where he observes the secret social customs of various species of monsters — which apparently include drinking, dancing, and watching undead strippers remove more than just their clothing. He is also made privy to the mating patterns of these creatures, and three bizarre tales are told over the evening. Also starring Donald Pleasence, Richard Johnson, Simon Ward, Britt Ekland, John Carradine, Anthony Steel and Stuart Whitman.”

Dr. Phibes returns for today’s classic trailer spotlight in 1972′s Dr. Phibes Rises Again. Starring Vincent Price, the horror sequel also features appearances from Peter Cushing and Robert Quarry, who classic horror fans know best as Count Yorga.
“That bizarre evil genius, the abominable Dr. Phibes, is back with all his old diabolical devilry. The sequel to The Abominable Dr. Phibes again features Vincent Price as one of his most perfect horror villains in his long list of evil-doers.
The eminent Dr. Phibes awakens from a decade of suspended animation and heads to Egypt with his mute aide-de-camp Vulnavia and the corpse of his dead wife. To resurrect his spouse, Phibes gets up to his usual diabolic tricks: cleverly murdering people in strange and heinous ways to invoke a magical incantation. But once he is in the tomb of the dead Pharaohs, the good doctor discovers that his pursuit »

Continuing our series of classic horror trailers that feature Vincent Price, we have 1970′s Scream and Scream Again. While it may not be Vincent Price’s most known film, it is one of the only times that Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing appeared in the same movie.
“They hunger for power, thirst for blood… and make each helpless, pleading victim Scream and Scream Again! Horror legends Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing star in this “masterwork of style of suspense” [Los Angeles Times] about a group of sadistic madmen plotting to take over the world – One Severed Body Part At A Time!”

If the last week of October arrived without a healthy dose of Halloween-oriented programming ... well, it couldn't be the last week of October.
As people of all ages get ready to celebrate, with or without costumes, various television networks will be doing the same. Here's a sampling of some of the offerings intended to be treats more than tricks.
"The Good Witch's Destiny" (Sunday, Oct. 27, Hallmark Channel): Repeating from its premiere the previous week, the sixth of Catherine Bell's fantasy movies makes the birthday of her supposed-sorceress character Cassie quite memorable.
"Paranormal Activity" (Sunday, FX): Which forces are causing a young couple (Katie Featherston, Micah Sloat) great alarm in their home? They use video equipment to find out in this cost-effective 2007 horror hit.
Far too often we throw around the phrase "horror icon" or "horror legend"; however, there is no disputing the fact that Vincent Price absolutely deserves to be described with both of those handles. And today, to celebrate Scream Factory's launch of The Vincent Price Collection (review), we count down our Top 10 Vincent Price Films.
Well known to mainstream, non-horror fans as the voice in the legendary Michael Jackson song "Thriller," Vincent Price was indeed the face of horror for quite some time. He was incredibly chilling with a voice that simply oozed horror. And it's for those enviable traits, and the fact that he spent so much of his life dedicated to the horror genre, that we honor Vincent Price with his own personal Top 10 list!
He has just under 200 acting credits to his name, then over 175 more instances where he appeared as himself. Price's credits read like a »

With The Vincent Price Collection being released this week, we thought it would be a great opportunity to give our readers a look at a number of trailers featuring the horror icon. Yesterday, we gave you a look at Witchfinder General, and we now have the original trailer for The Haunted Palace:
“In this chilling adaption of H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward” Charles Dexter Ward (Vincent Price) travels with his wife Ann (Debra Paget) to Arkham to inspect a mansion he has inherited. The original lord of the manor was his Great Grandfather Joseph Curwen a disciple of the devil who placed a hideous curse on the villages as they burned him at the stake. Slowly Ward feels the spirit of his ancestor possessing him and seeking a desperate vengeance on the descedants of those who previously thwarted his plans. Accursed mutants…evil possession…will »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. The Vincent Price Collection Six of Vincent Price‘s horror pictures for Aip are collected here in HD including The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit & the Pendulum, The Haunted Palace, The Masque of the Red Death, Witchfinder General, and The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Scream Factory hits another one out of the park with this fantastically produced and packaged collection of films featuring Price in all his glory. All but the final film bear some connection to the works of Edgar Allan Poe, a couple of them being very tenuous connections at best, and three were directed by Roger Corman. The movies run the gamut from good (Palace) to great (Masque) to Wtf (Phibes), and they all look better than they ever have thanks to new HD restorations and a bevy of extras »
