  • Fit to remain in memory

    I was elevean years old when this film came out. As someone declaring their sexual preferance, this movie was and remains a bold memory. Vincent Price's character and the performance he gave to that character, catapulted me into gathering many of Poe's writings. Now with the access of internet, researching one of my favorite actor's films and his marvelous history is most pleasing. I look forward to viewing more of this man's acting, portrayals of some increadible characters.

  • Best of Corman's Work

    I saw this film when it was first released in my neighborhood theatre. Over the past 50 years, gulp, it really hasn't lost it's appeal and I still consider the movie to be Corman's best work of the horror genre. Coupled with a very good Les Baxter score I believe it to be one of the most fascinating Poe stories ever produced.

  • Un-forgetable Closing Shot

    I consider this one of the best Poe/Corman movies. Barbara Steele, in an all too brief role,showcases her sexy, campy, horror talents, she gives some genuine scares and shuttershere and there. I saw this when it was first released (some 50 years ago, as of this writing) and have never forgot the closing shot. Much like the iconic ending of Death Wish, you will never completely forget it

  • Price and Poe production

    The second of Corman's Poe pictures and another chance for Vincent Price to wring his hands and crawl through the cobwebs.Bordering on camp but still moody enough to qualify as horror, this is mostly a Price showcase. The supporting cast is adequate, but don't give memorable performances. With me Price can do little wrong and i like Corman's pre-psychedelic approach to Poe, but don't expect to lose much sleep over this one.BTW this IS available on dvd.

  • Horror Fun

    It's fun to watch Vincent Price chew up the scenery in this campy Roger Corman horror picture. Startling closing shot...
