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.

    1. Hello John. Thanks for your interest in our VPA Black Cat. This was a limited edition release and all stocks are now gone. We do, however, have some empties featuring artwork by Graham Humphreys which make for a nice little collector’s item. If you are interested in purchasing one or two then email peter@thesooundofvincentprice.com

      All the best
