Title: Scream Factory Vincent Price Titles
Starring: Vincent Price
Released: 22nd October 2013
SRP: N/A

Further Details:
Some of you may have noticed a whole bunch of MGM horror and exploitation titles are disappearing from your Netflix instant queues on May 1st (to see the whole, sad list see instantwatcher.com). This includes some really nice HD transfers, which is depressing. Some of these may end up on Amazon Prime as part of the EPIX deal (I'm not positive, so don't quote me), but those of us without access to such things should be happy to hear Scream Factory's (the retro-horror arm of Shout Factory) latest announcement.

The following appeared on the company's Facebook page earlier today:
