Quoth Cthulhu: The Haunted Palace

Vincent Price Presents #8 isn't the first time that Price has been associated with the works of H.P. Lovecraft as he portrayed Charles Dexter Ward/Joseph Curwen in the 1963 film The Haunted Palace (based on The Case of Charles Dexter Ward but named after an Edgar Allan Poe story)...

Joseph, have you not gorged yourself enough on revenge?

- Simon Orne (played by Lon Chaney Jr.)

You do not know the extent of my appetite, Simon. I'll not have my fill of revenge until this village is a graveyard. Until they have felt, as I did, the kiss of fire on their soft bare flesh. All of them. Have patience my friends. Surely, after all these years, I'm entitled to a few small amusements.

- Joseph Curwen (played by Vincent Price)

(Thanks to Vincent Price)
