Movie Info

Condemned warlock Joseph Curwen (Vincent Price) curses a New England village just before being burned alive. More than a century later, Curwen's kindly great-great grandson Charles Ward (also Price) arrives in town and moves into Curwen's old mansion. Caretaker Simon Orne (Lon Chaney Jr.) helps Charles and his wife Ann (Debra Paget) adjust to their new home. The ancient curse, however, takes hold of Joseph, awakening inside him a long-dormant evil passed on through blood.

    The more times I watch this movie, the more I like it. There are some great actors in this movie, and the story is really cool, it's based on a Lovecraft story, and it's great. This is another of my favourite Corman movies with Price, he gives a great performance. I highly recommend this movie.

    Marvelous exercise in Grand Guignol, great sets, spooky atmosphere, fine screenplay by scenarist Charles Beaumont based on H.P. Lovecraft's The Strange Case of Charles Dexter Ward, and a splendid two-tiered performance by Vincent Price.

    When the great-grandson of a warlock (Vincent Price, in both roles) inherits a crumbling palace in Arkham, Massachusetts, bad things are sure to follow for local villagers whose ancestors burnt the magician at the stake. A fun, eerie and artificial atmosphere and a good performance by Price, but like most Roger Corman-directed products of the era it has poor effects and drags at times. From a story by H.P. Lovecraft.
