Deserves a Better Reputation and Following

The Horror Hall of Fame (1974)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Vincent Price hosts this television special that pays tribute to some of the greats that the genre offered. The film plays out like a talk show with Price hosting, doing a couple skits with his hunchback assistant as well as interviewing people and showing film clips.

I must say that this thing contains one of the most annoying laugh tracks that you'll ever hear but outside of that this here certainly deserves to have a better following because it's quite fun. As a talk show host Price is actually very good and manages to hold your attention even through some of the dumb skits with the hunchback.

The real highlight are the scenes where he's sitting down with his guests and conducting interviews. John Carradine, Frank Gorshin, John Astin, Candy Clark, William Tuttle and Raymond McNally are the guests on hand. The topics basically have Price and the guests talking about various horror movies that they've seen or worked on. Tuttle talks about working with Bela Lugosi on MARK OF THE VAMPIRE and he does a test on Clark.

The highlight of the film is without question when Price and Carradine sit down. This sequence here is something I could have watched for hours because it didn't appear to be scripted and instead it just seemed like two friends sitting down to discuss the various films they saw as a kid as well as some that they did. They discuss THE GOLEM and Lon Chaney in good detail and Carradine even says he's never wanted to see another person act the Hunchback after Chaney.

If you're a fan of Price, Carradine or just horror in general then this here is certainly a must see. There are clips from classic movies shown and (at the time) current films like BLACULA. Again, the laugh track is horrible but this is still very much worth watching.
