Vincent Price is trending on social media as Horror fans get into the Halloween spirit. The host is a beloved figure across the genre for his work on broadcast television and in film. (As you might expect a lot of people are posting clips from his amazing appearance on The Muppet Show.) But, there's so much more out there. A fun part of all the tributes flying around online is the social work that he did to support various populations in the arts. This was someone who cared deeply about multiple mediums from television, film, theater, and more. A lot of the classic films that fans have an affection for some from his catalog. As you would expect, that meant that Price became a fixture in pop culture later in life. Scooby-Doo fans absolutely love his parts in some of the animated specials and The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. It's just a long line of work that is hard to match.
If you're looking for more adventures between two horror staples, check out Elvira Meets Vincent Price! Here's a synopsis: "The two titans of terror and comedy unite in comics for the very first time as Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents Elvira Meets Vincent Price! The ghost of Price has a mission that only the macabre maven can assist him with. The apocalypse is coming, and it's heading straight to live-streaming for binge-watching! Leave it to a fabled lost film to save the day, if only our horror hostess and spectral companion can find it in time."
"Writer David Avallone (Bettie Page, Drawing Blood) returns to capture the timeless voice of Elvira, and taps into his own history and love for Old Hollywood and film to bring Vincent Price along for the ride this time. With over three years and countless issues of experience working right alongside Elvira herself and putting words in her mouth, fans will be happy to see his return. This time he's joined for the first time by artist Juan Samu (Black Panther, Transformers). The cast is rounded out by returning colorist Walter Pereyra and letterer Taylor Esposito."

As Vincent Price is trending today, weeks before Halloween, I feel compelled to contribute this still from the film "Theatre of Blood," one of my personal favorites. The banner behind him reads, "Critics Circle Awards 1970." pic.twitter.com/HsX5RxM5it— Howard Sherman (@HESherman) October 13, 2021

As a kid, I sold Girl Scout cookies to Vincent Price (he lived in my neighborhood). He bought every single box of cookies and I won a Schwinn bicycle.— Barb (@BarbL219) October 13, 2021
