    ANY film with Vincent owns!

    Stage Fright is good enough, but I wouldn't exactly call it great.

    True, but it does have the owl costume, so... it gets my vote. The horror genre could be saved if there were only more killers in owl costumes.

    Owlman? :(

    I wish I could vote in this, but I haven't seen Stage Fright in ages. I suspect I'd still have to go with Vincent here though...

    I voted for Stagefright, but Theatre of Blood is one of my favorite Price films.

    I went for Stage Fright, because of the owl AND Giovanni Lombardo Radice's awesome gayness!

    As much as I love Stage Fright, I had to go with Theatre of Blood, if only because Vincent Price is probably my favorite actor of all-time. He cracks me up in this movie! :lol:

    As much as I love Price, I gotta go with Stage Fright. It's so much fun, and has such a good sense of humor. Plus that owl costume rocks :D

    I can't vote against VP.Stagefright was good and i think it was the closest to home role for Mr.Morghen.;)

    Fixed!

    Stage Fright.

    Both are very good films but Soavi gets the nod here.

    I'm due for a rewatch of both, but I found Stagefright to be the better film. Though I had some serious problems with the logic of the killer's abilities, which I seem to remember at some stages were way too supernatural.

    Absolutely no competition. Theatre of Blood hands down. One of Vincent Price's best roles and it was actually his favorite horror film.
