When I was a kid, it seemed as though the same two actors starred in all the scary movies: Boris Karloff and Vincent Price. But there was a small problem with that. Neither one of them was particularly frightening. Karloff looked too old and feeble to do much harm, and Price was too soft and effeminate to stoke fear. Of course, now I’m older and know better – the old, feeble, soft, and effeminate are the scariest people on Earth. Watch Price in 1958’s House on Haunted Hill by clicking here.
