Extras announced for THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION III

Vincent Price remains the Prince of Darkness after all these years. He took over the horror genre with his suave charms that seduced others into horrific scenarios. Now he’s getting a third volume dedicated to his gruesome legacy with five films he made from 1961 to 1970. Among the quintet is Diary of a Madman which inspired the Ozzy Osbourne album. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
