Very interesting insight in the life of Vincent Price
27 May 2003 | by (Oxford, England) – See all my reviews

For those of you that maybe have seen Vincent Price, like me (as I have seen Witchfinder General and Edward Scissorhands), this documentary is a must-see to understand what a successful actor and his contribution to popular culture, and his incredible passion in art! But if you have not heard of Vincent Price, or may have heard of him from somewhere else, like his appearance on the Muppet Show, I will still recommend it to them as it may give them several recommendations to his many films. But if you are a true Vincent Price fan, the sort of fan that has seen his many films many times, or a member of a Vincent Price fan club, you might be less optimistic as I am about this documentary.

First of all, the content of this documentary, personally, is very good. The vast archive that the documentary makers had on Price, like the photographs, archive footage from his films and the home-movie footage, was mind-boggling, but maybe not to the true fan of Vincent Price as most of this is mainly film footage. But they may be satisfied with the old from his childhood to his early adulthood, like I was.

The contributions from the stars were kept to a minimum. So there was only like close friends to Price or his daughter was able to contribute, which was a bit of a disappointment to someone, like me, who is a fan of these biographical documentaries.

After watching this, I just wanted to watch as any Vincent Price films as possible, especially those Edgar Allan Poe adaptations and Tim Burton's animated short, Vincent. But if you haven't heard of Vincent Price before, you may want to watch the occasional film that may be of interest to you. So if you like horror films, you start by watching House of Wax rather than Laura. But for those true fans out there, they may learn a thing or two about his life, like his passion for art stared when he was only 12, when he purchased some art work for under $40.

Overall, for some of those like me, this was a very interesting insight in the life of Vincent Price. For those who have not heard of him, they may find it interesting too. But those true fans, they may be as optimistic as others.
