Vincent Price Sings “The Monster Mash”! “What The Friday!?!?!” Vincent’s Disco Dancers! A Happy Halloween To You!

Vincent Price Performs “The Monster Mash”!

I love Vincent Price. He was a legendary Actor, an avid Art collector and an Art expert, and also a great Chef who wrote cookbooks – and he sang too!

That’s right, this is a “What The Friday?!” moment I had to share!

This clip shows Vincent Price and his fiends, including fellow horror icon John Carradine, as they perform “The Monster Mash” in 1981’s cult movie “The Monster Club!”

How can you not love the idea of Vincent Price performing an iconic Halloween song – with dancers!

Enjoy!

what I love about that clip is the song begins after the Actor performs a minute-and-a-half long monologue without a cut! This fascinating soliloquy by Price is all about the monsters he calls “Humes”!

As in, you know, HUMANS.

Since it’s Halloween season, let’s also note that Price was in a number of classic horror films – from “The Abominable Dr. Phibes” to “Tales Of Terror”, “The Haunted Palace”, and “Theater Of Blood!”

Yes, that’s Diana Rigg next to him – she said it was the most fun she ever had making a movie! Click here to see the trailer and find out why this film is just so much fun!

If you want to know more about Vincent Price’s life, and you should because it is fascinating, here is how to do it:

His daughter wrote a compelling and insightful biography of her father that is loving but candid – click here to see more about it:
