Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Vincent Price Birthday Special

We’re in the middle of the biggest birthday celebration in the horror calendar – so we’re paying tribute to some of horror’s greatest icons. Vincent Price and Christopher Lee celebrated their 103rd and 92nd birthdays respectively yesterday, with Peter Cushing’s the day before. Although Price and Cushing are no longer with us, we’ve had a lot of fun over the last few days checking out some of the tribute artwork and writing that’s been circulating. Here is our pick of the best fan art featuring perhaps the three greatest voices in horror.
