S E I R O T S Y SPOOK Featuring Vincent Price

Get into the Halloween “spirit” with the Father of Horror Movies, actor Vincent Price.

V

incent Price, born in St. Louis in 1911, built his reputation by playing the villain in countless movies during a career that lasted more than five decades. His first movie role was playing Robert Wade in Service de Luxe in 1938, and his final film appearance was as the Inventor in Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands in 1990. In the 1950s, Price appeared in almost two dozen films. Many of them, such as House of Wax and The Fly, were horror movies. This month, WYCC PBS Chicago is airing two of Price’s films of that era as part of an early Halloween celebration.

House on Haunted Hill Sunday, October 15 at 5 p.m.

Eccentric millionaire Frederick Loren (played by Price) invites five people to stay overnight at a potentially haunted house with him and his fourth wife, Annabelle. Each person who makes it through the night will receive $10,000. After the doors to the spooky mansion are locked for the night, the terror begins.

The Bat

Sunday, October 22 at 5 p.m. A mystery writer rented a country house that had been the scene of multiple murders committed by a criminal known as “The Bat.” The house’s owner, John Fleming, had recently stolen $1 million and hidden it in the house. After Fleming is killed by his friend, Dr. Malcolm Wells (played by Price), the house once again becomes the site of mysterious and dangerous activities.

Please see the listings for additional Halloween programming, including Frankenstein and Dracula. 6
