Vincent Price Collection contains "House On Haunted Hill", "The Bat" and "The Last Man On Earth." "House On Haunted Hill" - A Perennial favorite of the "Shock theatre" TV circuit, "House On Haunted Hill" stars Vincent Price as a sinister gent (you're surprised?) who owns a sinister mansion on a sinister hill. He offers several of his enemies $10,000 each - if they agree to spend the night in the crumbling old mansion. Price festively gives each of his guests a tiny coffin containing a handgun, then proceeds to set in motion any number of gadgets and devices designed to frighten the guests into using their weapons. Strange as it seems, old Vinnie isn't the real villain of the proceedings the honor goes to his scheming wife Carol Ohmart and her lover Alan Marshall. Also on hand is eternal doom-sayer Elisha Cook, Jr., who is given the film's famous line. When originally released in theatres, "House On Haunted Hill" was accompanied by one of those gimmicks so beloved of producer/director William Castle: the gimmick was "Emergo," and it involved a prop skeleton that "emerged" from the screen at a crucial moment to frighten he audience. "The Bat" - Agnes Moore plays mystery novelist Cornelian Van Order, whose remote mansion is the scene for all sorts of diabolical goings-on. The "mag" is a million dollars' worth of securities, hidden away somewhere in the huge and foreboding estate. Vincent Price is seen committing a murder early-on - but he's not the only villain! Others in the cast include Having Gordon an overly diligent detective, and former "Our Gang" star Dar Hood as a murder victim. "The Bat" was adapted for the screen by its director Crane Wilbur, himself a prolific "old dark house" scenarist and playwright. "The Last Man On Earth" - In a post-epidemic nightmare world, scientist Robert Morgan (Vincent Price) is the only man immune to the plague which has transformed the entire population of the Earth into vampire-like creatures. He becomes the monster slayer that vampire-society fears. Curing one of them, Ruth (Franca Bettor), with a transfusion of his blood gives him hope for the future, It is a short future, however, since the other vampires quickly find and kill him. This dark tale, based on Richard Matches's even darker novel "I Am Legend," was later remade as "The Omega Man" with Charlston Heston in the Vincent Price role.
