Blu-ray ($79.97, Scream Factory)

In the 1960s, Vincent Price became lionized as one of Hollywood most dependably deplorable villains, especially in a string of low-budget flicks in which he played an assortment of madmen, zealots and other horribly unhinged offshoots of humanity. This deluxe collection of six of his movies from that era (Fall of the House of Usher, The Haunted Palace, The Masque of the Red Death, Pit and the Pendulum, Witchfinder General and The Abominable Dr. Phibes) comes with an assortment of top-notch bonus content, including interviews with schlock-king director Roger Corman, who worked with Price on many of his films; commentaries; still photos; and a 24-page booklet.
