(1962) Premature Burial

Eh, this was alright. The set design was pretty great and the lighting was especially excellent. Highly commendable for the time period.

I’m not even sure what else to say. I feel like Corman was really missing Price with this one. Although my biggest complaints come not necessarily from the actors but the designed characters they play. The worst was the doctor at the end, who essentially announces someones death just by looking at them from 5 ft away and says the 1960’s equivalent of “dude, he’s fuccin dead”.

I also just realized that I enjoy these early 60’s horror films much like I would enjoy a play. After a while you’re able to train yourself to not focus on the lack of realism and just kind of see a story being played out. “Played” out…heh.
