Peter Lorre, Vincent Price, and Boris Karloff? From director Jacques Tourneur (Cat People, I Walked With a Zombie) and writer Richard Matheson (I Am Legend)? How is it that I've never seen The Comedy of Terrors? What a pedigree!

In the film, Price plays a scumbag undertaker who murders people in order to fill his own pockets when he's hired to perform their funerals. Of course, things don't go his way for long.

I'm not wasting any more time. Today's Horror Squad Movie Club is the 1964 horror-comedy The Comedy of Terrors. Take some time this weekend, check it out for free on MGM's website, then join us here on Monday for a post-movie discussion. Will the film live up to it's incredible dream team cast and crew?
