Critic Reviews for The Tomb of Ligeia (Tomb of the Cat)
Another film based on the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and directed by Roger Corman. The least effective of the ten Poe films. It often drags and Price seems miscast.
An excellent conclusion to the [AIP Poe] cycle, and a fine achievement of penny-pinching filmmaking of the sort that Corman did better than anyone else.
To have one's pulse race when turning the pages of "Ligeia" - or, indeed, while watching Corman's film - isn't merely to fall into Poe's literary trap, it's to somehow be in communion with the dead author.
...visually sumptuous as the fetid ambience of English ruins such as Stonehenge and a 900-year-old abbey fills every widescreen inch.... Price [is] the romantic lead and the (admirably restrained) vessel of necrophilic madness.
Audience Reviews for The Tomb of Ligeia (Tomb of the Cat)
Nice paring of legends Vincent Price and Roger Corman. Solid '60's Gothic horror.
This is one of my favourite Corman movies and favourite Price movies. Plus, it's got a cat, I love cats. I love the story too, it's very much like Poe's stories. And it has great atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
All things considered...a very polished looking film. Based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe.
Vincent Price is delightfully morose as poor Verden Fell. A widower who (along with his new bride) is haunted by the memory(?) of his deceased(?) wife.
One of the better Corman films in my opinion. Full of creepy fun, cheap scares and over the top acting.
Oh and an omnipresent "FLYING" cat...can't forget the omnipresent flying cat!
