The Vault of Horror Commemorates the Vincent Price Centennial!

It would be an understatement to say that Vincent Price helped shape my development as a horror fan. Rather, for me, as for so many fans of the genre, Vincent Price epitomized horror. He was the genre. No other personality before or since (and that is not to say there have not been many great ones) has so perfectly captured the essence of horror as Price, combining genuine terror with outrageous fun at every turn. A true original, his work continues to inspire us, and today we remember it in particular because he would have been 100 years old.

Price was born 100 years ago today in St. Louis, Missouri, and the world is certainly a better place for that occurrence. He has enriched us, entertained us and delighted us, and I thank him for it from the bottom of my heart. In honor of this momentous day, please enjoy the little Price pastiche I've put together below, consisting of links to some of the many Vincent-related posts the Vault has featured over the years. You can also check out Brutal as Hell for some stupendous coverage...
