Vincent Price Double Feature: The Last Man On Earth / House On Haunted Hill
This Vincent Price double feature includes two of his creepy best in their original widescreen format. This first thriller: as a result of a row with his wife, a millionaire throws a strange "house party". He invites a motley group of people to a creepy old mansion one night - and promises them then thousand dollars each if they can remain until sunrise. Director William Castle employs a wide variety of gimmicks to make this corny buy enjoyable thriller work.
