Wrapping up..

Wrapping up the Vincent Price posts, we have Belgian art from Tower of London (1962), French art from Diary of a Madman (1963), the US 1-sheet for Last Man on Earth (1964), a 3-sheet for War-Gods of the Deep (1965) and the US 1-sheet for Scream and Scream Again (1969).

Finally, a couple of gorgeous Italian posters (1 and 2 panels) from The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971), which are much better than the US posters. US artwork for Dr. Phibes Rises Again! (1972), US art and an unusually boring Italian locandina for House of the Long Shadows (1983) as well as US art for Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984).

A few more Poes

Here are a few more Edgar Allan Poe movies that Vincent Price made that weren't directed by Roger Corman but were however released by AIP. Starting off, a US 1-sheet, Italian locandina and a gorgeous Italian 2-folio from The Oblong Box (1969), as well as the US 1-sheet from Cry of the Banshee (1970). The 2 US posters here are actually part of my physical collection.

On a side note, if anyone has any ideas of how to get the images here to post side by side instead of stretching down the page, let me know. It worked in my first few posts and though I haven't done anything differently with the HTML, its suddenly stopped working. Thanks!

Mr. Price meets Mr. Poe, part II

Finishing up with the Corman directed Edgar Allan Poe movies with Vincent Price, we have The Raven (1963). First up, the US 1-Sheet, followed by what looks like a 6-sheet poster and a German poster from what I believe is an 80's re-release of the movie.

Next, a US insert and Italian locandina from The Haunted Palace (1963), as well as a US 1-sheet from Masque of the Red Death (1964).

Finally, the US 1-sheet from Comedy of Terrors (1964) as well as a US 1-sheet and Italian locandina from Tomb of Ligeia (1965). The latter of which features a nice painting of Vincent Price, typical of Italian poster art.

Mr. Price meets Mr. Poe

  1. We start off with Vincent Price's first Poe movie for Roger Corman, Fall of the House of Usher (1960), here we have a US half-sheet and German posters.

Next up, The Pit and the Pendulum (1961). Here we have an American insert and half-sheet as well as Italian and Spanish posters, the latter of which features a nice painting of Barbara Steele.

Finally, Tales of Terror (1962). Here we have a wide variety of posters. First up, the Spanish poster which is very similar to the US 1-sheet, only with the addition of bright colors. The Belgian poster re-works the artwork found in both of these posters but makes something fresh and new out of it. Then we have 3 from Italy. First up, what looks like a lobby card with interesting artwork in the border, then we have 2 beautiful and very different posters from Italy.

Next up: The last of Price's Poe movies and the best of the rest of the 60's.

Vincent Price in the 50's

Continuing on with Vincent Price's remaining output from the 50's we have an insert from The Mad Magician (1954), made in 3D to capitalize on the success of House of Wax released the previous year. 4 years later Price would go on to star in his first movie for William Castle, House on Haunted Hill (1958). Here we have the 1-sheet poster, an Australian 3-sheet with slightly different art (notice the lack of the hanging woman and severed head) as well as a French poster for the movie.

Next up, The Fly (1958) and Return of the Fly (1959). Here we have Spanish and Belgian posters for The Fly and gorgeous British Quads for The Fly and its sequel.

Finally, we close out the 50's with a beautiful Italian 1-panel from Price's other William Castle movie, The Tingler (1959) as well as the US 1-sheet, German and French posters for The Bat (1959).

Next up: Price's 60's output including some beautiful foreign artwork for his Edgar Allan Poe movies made with Roger Corman.

House of Wax (1953)

One movie that comes to mind as having a large number of different poster designs from many different countries is House of Wax starring Vincent Price. I'm a big Price fan, and since House of Wax is widely thought of as the movie that got him pigeon-holed as a horror star, and one of his earliest horror movie roles, this may be my ticket to posting all of my Price posters.

From top left we have 2 American posters, the 2nd being from a re-release, 2 Italian posters, 1 German, 1 Spanish and 1 Belgian.
