Diary of a Madman

Vincent Price makes awesome movies, including this one


Horror

Rod Lott
My love of horror can be traced directly back to the Vincent Price movies that used to litter the weekend schedules of local UHF stations of my childhood.

Beyond a Reasonable Doubt / While the City Sleeps

Enjoyable slices of old-school noir the way it should be


Thriller

Rod Lott
In 1956, three years after helming the film-noir classic “The Big Heat,” director Fritz Lang returned to the genre for a pair of films that prove to be his final for America: “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt” and “While the City Sleeps.”

Master of the World

Propeller in the rear, party in the front!


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
As a huge Vincent Price fan, I’ve literally been waiting more than a decade for 1961’s “Master of the World” to hit DVD. At one time, it was slated to be released under MGM’s “Midnite Movies” line — I remember reading in a magazine that screenwriter Richard Matheson either completed interviews or commentary for it — before the studio abandoned that umbrella.

Black Zoo

Admission to this sanguine safari is recommended.


Horror

Rod Lott
One wacky dude, this Michael Conrad (Michael Gough, Alfred in the "Batman" movies of Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher) of 1963's "Black Zoo." He's the owner of a zoo that appears to be the hottest hang-out in town — frequented not only by schoolchildren, but also newlyweds and hot college girls — and whose furry residents he calls "my children."

Confessions of an Opium Eater / The Face of Fu Manchu / The Vengeance of Fu Manchu

Confucius say ... WTF?!?


Thriller

Rod Lott
For very different reasons, I'll watch any movie with Vincent Price, Bill Murray, Jackie Chan or Carla Gugino. Falling into the first category is 1962's Confessions of an Opium Eater, a rare Price vehicle rare no more, thanks to a DVD debut from Warner Archive.

Elvira’s Haunted Hills

A big bust in more ways than one.


Comedy

Rod Lott
The self-proclaimed mistress of the dark’s second movie, 2001’s “Elvira’s Haunted Hills,” gets another DVD release in a “special enhanced edition,” and that wording should give you a clue as to the comedy’s wavelength of humor.
