Acclaimed director JOHN LANDIS is honored with the prestigious VINCENT PRICE AWARD at the re-launched HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST on Sun. Nov. 5. In Los Angeles. Celebrating his two iconic works AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON and MICHAEL JACKSON’S THRILLER, LANDIS will be presented the Award by Vincent’s daughter VICTORIA PRICE.
HOLLYWOOD HORRORFEST is the proud home of the official PRICE AWARD – an award that celebrates VINCENT PRICE’S unique artistic and iconic legacy by “honoring an artist whose work has achieved equally iconic status in the horror/fantasy genres.”
VICTORIA PRICE will present the PRICE AWARD to Mr. Landis for these seminal works.
Afterwards LANDIS will sit down with festival head, MILES FLANAGAN, in a cosy ‘Johnny Carson-style’ conversation about the inspirations, challenges and history of both these enduring and influential classics. The event even comes with its own ‘chat show-style’ house band, THE SLAUGHTERED LAMBS, to keep the relaxed vibe going.
Prior to this VICTORIA will talk about her father, the real Vincent Price, through her uniquely personal stories and photos, and bring awareness to her father’s museum and art legacy.
HHF would like to personally thank VICTORIA PRICE & the PRICE Family Estate for their generous support and help in creating this unique Award.
Previous PRICE AWARD Recipients: Joe Dante (GREMLINS, HOWLING), Cassandra “Elvira” Peterson (ELVIRA’S HAUNTED HILLS) and Sid Haig (SPIDER BABY, HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES).
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear directly from the mastermind behind two unforgettable films that have left an indelible mark on the horror and thriller genres.
