Episode 23--Vincent Price Double Feature

Good Evening, darlings.

This week, Johnny Zombie reviews two classics starring the legendary Vincent Price.

As always, you can listen to the eldritch goodness here, or on download from

First up is the innovative classic, The Last Man on Earth. Based on the scripted by Richard Matheson, this is the first (and best) adaptation of his famous novel I Am Legend. Filmed in Italy in 1964, this black and white stunner became a major influence on George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead.

Next is the Saturday night chiller classic, The House on Haunted Hill. Directed by William Castle, this was one of his most successful films of his career. An eccentric millionaire wagers $10,000 bucks a piece to a group of strangers. The only catch is that they have to spent a night in a haunted house. This film carries on the tradition of the "Spooky old house."

Both films are in the public domain, so they are available to watch here on my site!

The House On Haunted Hill

The Last Man on Earth

In FROM THE VAULTS I dig up the Italian-produced, and made in Miami classic, Super Fuzz!
Starring Spaghetti Western veteran Terence Hill, and legendary character actor Ernest Borgnine. This film was a staple of my childhood, and HBO's regular line up back in the 1980's. It's a classic comedy that needs to be re-visited.

This Week's Videos!


Blood runs deep in the hollow, in Libby McDermott's new film. This independently financed shocker is based in part on a real murder in Pennsylvania's past. Written by John Taylor. This is a co-production of Libmatic films and Colorfully Dark Productions.

An Amber Heard Video
This video was shot by the talented, and beautiful, Tasya Van Ree. It features her girlfriend, the stunning and talented Amber Heard (soon to be seen in John Carpenter's The Ward).

I could say more, but I think this video speaks for itself.

Due to technical difficulties, the video is HUGE on this page. Still, that gives you more Amber Heard to enjoy!
