The name/title of the blog TOOMBES comes from the editors deep love towards the late actor Vincent Price. When he was thinking the names for the blog, he had couple of good ones but nothing that would stand out – Then he saw a movie called The Madhouse (1974), where Mr. Price is playing an actor Paul Toombes whose most famous character Dr.Death starts to kill people.
