The Lyrics

When you're an Amiwriter, it's always Halloween.
Scary, scary night
Make your victims scream and pray
& pass out in a gothic way
With eyes that show the darkness in your soul
House On Haunted Hill
Made 'em shriek 'til they were ill
Made chattering teeth in matinee chills
From scarlet colors on the dead man's swollen hand

Now I understand
Why you slayed and flayed for me
How Roderick Usher lost his sanity
How Dr. Phibes would make them bleed
Skulls would not glisten
They would just dry out
But in your House Of Wax
They'll glisten now

A crimson Vincent Price
Has witches hung in cheering halls
Leaves severed heads on gore drenched walls
With eyesockets that watch the world and can't forget
In The Last Man On Earth you've met
Rotting men in rotting clothes
A silver bullet or bloody nose
Won't show these shuffling corpses where to go

Now I think I know
Why you drowned and clowned for me
Your Theatre Of Blood killed critics' vanity
As you wrenched their kidneys free
They could not listen, their ears were on your windowsill
Go toss them on the grill
For they could not tell you they loathed you, they did not know how
The Raven bit their cruel tongues out

And when no life was left in your black heart
You took their lives as monsters often do
But I could've told you, Vincent
This world was never meant for one as frightening as you

(ABC) Vincent Price was a brilliant thespian - in real life he was reported to have been one of the kindest, gentlest, most delightfully charming people you'd ever meet ... but on the silver screen, AAAAAAAIIIIIEEEEEEE!!!!!! 555!

Excellent rhymes, but I got lost in several places on the pacing, and there seems to be some lyrics missing. Also, and not your fault, being 6 months away from Halloweeen and the fact that most of the name references went past me is why I gave you 4s. Still, very good job here, Yoidy.
