Vincent Price, Hollywood’s embodiment of horror, brings his macabre sense of humour and his unique blend of eeriness and stylish suspense to these four highly-polished dramatisations.
* 'Cat’s Cradle' (from 'The Squaw' by Bram Stoker) – When a kitten’s head is accidentally crushed by a brash film producer, its mother takes some ‘medieval’ revenge...
* 'Come as You Are' (from the story by Bill Ingram) – When Vincent Price attends a party, a phantom encounter with a guest gives fancy dress a whole new meaning...
* 'Speciality of the House' (from the story by Stanley Ellin) – An exclusive restaurant has a very rare dish on the menu... one that will leave a nasty taste in the mouth.
* 'The Ninth Removal' (from the story by R. Chetwynd-Hayes) – The death of a promiscuous young girl provides all the ingredients for a classic murder mystery... or does it?
The Price of Fear/ Classis BBC Radio Horror
“Clever, mischievous, and utterly charming. These words describe the dapper Vincent Price and the horror stories he presented for BBC Radio in the early 1970s… It’s all so urbane and deliciously creepy. Vincent Price remains one of most recognizable and beloved personalities in entertainment. Classic voice. Classic tales. Classic results.”
