Christopher Lee, best known for his role as Count Dracula in a string of popular Hammer Horror films, was born on May 27, 1922, in Belgravia, London, UK.

Vincent Price, well known for his distinctive voice and performances in a series of horror films made in the latter part of his career, was born on May 27, 1911, St Louis, Missouri, U.S..

And finally, but not least, Peter Cushing, known for his many appearances in Hammer Films, in which he played the sinister scientist Baron Frankenstein and the vampire hunter Dr. Van Helsing, was born on May 26, 1913, Kenley, Surrey, UK.

How spooky is that???
