This is another really solid Poe/Corman film that Vincent Price dominates. It’s super atmospheric with the great set pieces that you’d expect.
I think the story could have seemed over simplistic in an on-screen adaptation if it weren’t for Price’s dynamic character. It’s a solidly paced run straight up until the finale.
That’s really it, pretty straightforward but entertaining stuff. If you like Roger Corman and Vincent Price, it’s not one to miss.
