This Day in Halloween: "Madhouse" starring Vincent Price opens across the U.S. in 1974. / Illustration by Angela Smith
Madhouse opens across the U.S. in 1974. The last of Vincent Price’s films from his English period (1968-1974), it co-stars Peter Cushing and features posthumous cameos by Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone via film clips from Roger Corman movies. Though mildly successful on its release, the film remains a cult favorite.
