From what I know, Vincent Price has never once hosted his own Halloween Special which is a real shame considering the man was THE Master of Fright in his day. Despite this, the comedic minds at Saturday Night Live decided to finally give the film fiend his due… well, sorta. Being a product of SNL, Vincent Price’s Halloween Special were a series of skits that were more light on the macabre than they were the funny, but the performances by Bill Hader (as Vincent Price), Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen and special guest John Hamm are so good you can’t help but love them!
