Comedy of Terrors, The (1963, Vincent Price, Boris Karloff)



Vincent Price stars in this droll horror film as a New England mortician who, unable to pay his rent, goes on a little spree to scare up some business. Classic horror greats pepper the cast: Boris Karloff plays the mortician’s senile father-in-law and Peter Lorre appears as the reluctant henchman who falls for the mortician’s wife.
