The final in the Corman-Poe films is The Tomb of Ligeia (1964), and my least favorite of the series. It felt like Vincent was held back from his normal performances of dramatic shock and awe. It’s not to say there weren’t great things in this movie. I loved Elizabeth Shepherd playing the roles of Rowena…

I don’t remember seeing The Masque of the Red Death (1964) before now, which is a little surprising to me. As I watch, I’m riveted with the boldness of professing to be a Satan worshipper. I wonder how many good Christians jumped from their seats in the theatre and rushed out, demanding a refund. Vincent…

Like the Raven, The Haunted Palace (1963) was touted as being from Poe, while it does have the title and a few lines at the end of the movie, it is again, not Poe. But it doesn’t matter, it’s a great movie. It’s darker with little comedic influence, which is probably due to the fact…

The Raven (1963) was marketed as being based on Edgar Allen Poe’s poem of the same name. The only thing this movie has to do with it is the beginning where Vincent Price reads it, and of course the Raven appearing at the window wanting inside. Oh, yeah, and the name of Dr. Erasmus Craven’s…

Valdemar; technically, The Black Cat has the Cask of Amontillado and something else blended in as well. Morella is on the bland side for me, I found myself wandering and…

And then, invisible in the darkness but all to hideously real to the other senses the presence of the conqueror worm. – Guy The Premature Burial (1962) starts in a cemetery with men in top hats digging up a grave, rather, watching grave robbers dig up a grave. When they peel back the lid, imagine…

The waves crash on the cliffs as a man rides in his carriage to the castle at the top. The set I’ve seen in several other American International Pictures’ films, I’m not complaining, I love it in everything I see. Pit and the Pendulum (1961) is a dramatic tale filled with mystery and breath-holding, seat-clutching…

Macabre castles, Vincent Price, Les Baxter’s music, extraordinary movie posters (I want my book covers to be like them,) the over dramatic head turn, and cocked brows are just of some the things I love about B-Movies and thank the Digital Gods for allowing me to find them somewhat easily. These were a staple in…
