TODAY'S PHAN FOTO: I love posed photos like this from the 1950s and 1960s....it reminds me of paging through mom's magazines looking for Halloween, spooky stuff when I was little. Those golden Halloween time memories come rushing back. The chilly air, Friday night high school football games and newspapers spread on the dining room table. Scooping out slimy pumpkin seeds by the handful.

Here are pictures from the last April CHILLER show:
When I met Vincent
The photo above is from around 1972. It's Vincent Price in a reception room at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. He had just given a very entertaining lecture at Crawford Hall. My grandfather, who managed the Recreation Building on campus, got me into the reception. It was full of professors and college students. I'm not in this picture because I was too short! I was only thirteen. I got to shake his hand and tell him how much I enjoyed his movies THE TINGLER and HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. I was a blubbering mess. I'll never forget it. Photo by my grandfather, Jim Shorts.
The second VINCENT PRICE Blu-Ray collection has just been released and we have it for about 15 dollars under list price for a limited time. Get yours today, here at Creepy Classics!
This additional great memory in from Kevin Mulligan:
The cold February wind was whipping and it blew right in as they opened the door, and there stood the tall imposing site of Mr. Price in a full length fur coat. I spoke with him for a few moments, telling him how much I enjoyed his work, and asked him if he would be so kind as to sign my poster. With great flourish he autographed it personally to me. I thanked him for doing so, to which he replied - "No, thank YOU for allowing me to do so".
What a class act, and such a great actor!

It's Here! ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN on Blu-Ray
Now in stock, it's the number one comedy-horror movie of all-time: ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948) on Blu-Ray! It's here and in shock stock.
The rip-snortin' monster fest classic and Abbott & Costello's pinnacle. Lou's brain is targeted for the Frankenstein Monster's skull by Dracula (Lugosi) and his lovely assistant. Larry Talbott flies in from London to try and help keep Dracula from completing his nefarious plans. Lon Chaney Jr. is great in his final Larry Talbot/Wolf Man incarnation, Glenn Strange rocks as the mighty Frankenstein Monster and Bela Lugosi's major studio swan song --- and he's GREAT! I can never get enough of this, it's one memorable scene after another. Jerry Garcia said it was his favorite movie.
The quality is stunning...see background and textures like you've never seen before.
You'll find it in our Creepy Blu-Ray Department here at Creepy Classics.
