Munro and Smith had the honour of appearing in the Vincent Price classics The Abominable Dr Phibes and Theatre of Blood, while two-time Bond girl Beswick appeared in the 1980s anthology From a Whisper to a Scream – Vincent’s last horror film.

These scream queens were all good friends with Price and loved the concept of a British ale made in honour of the horror icon and self-confessed Anglophile who called UK his second home for over 20 years, beginning in 1964 when he came to London to film the Roger Corman Poe film, Masque of the Red Death.

Vincent Price Ale: Black CatVictoria Price was in London, UK this week giving an inspirational talk on her legendary dad and his legacy. The event, at the BFI Southbank, which followed a screening of the rarely-seen 1960s western The Jackals, also gave her the opportunity to give her seal of approval to the first-ever British-made Vincent Price Ale, which has been especially created by Kent brewers Hopdaemon in honour of the Horror King, and whose label has been designed by the equally legendary Graham Humphreys (aka The Quadfather).

Black Cat, so named because of Vincent’s brush with meddlesome moggies in the film classics Tales of Terror and Tomb of Ligeia, is now available to order online. So if you fancy stocking up the perfect Halloween tipple, then check it out now: www.alesbymail.co.uk
