THE PRICE OF FEAR Classic BBC Radio Horror

by | Read by Vincent Price and a Full Cast

Audio Theater • 2 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2010

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. In many of the episodes (4 of the 22 are in this collection), Price effortlessly jumps from narrator to character actor to commentator to create a seamless aural atmosphere. For example, in "Cat’s Cradle," adapted from a Bram Stoker story, Price introduces the piece, offers cocktails to a newlywed British couple, cringes at the reappearance of an old colleague, and then leads them all on a horrific tour of a castle’s torture chamber. 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.
