Audience Reviews for The Tomb of Ligeia

  • Jun 06, 2011
    This is my first Roger Corman picture I have seen. The Tomb Of Ligeia left me with the feeling of eerie dread. Corman makes useful touches of gothic hell and brimstone. Vincent Price plays as Verdon a lonely man who's wife named Ligeia died and he seems to have an obsession or haunted by her death. There is annoyance of a dark cat who keeps lurking around the mansion of abbey and taunting Verdon and his new wife Rowena Trevanion played by Elizabeth Sheperd. TTOL is often slow and at times was difficult for me to follow. I pretty much knew that this was Corman's intent since he was saving the best for last, and is it ever striking. Corman makes very good use of location, color, sets, camera tracking shots, swish pans, and cast. Corman's picture lacks in character development but he makes it up in the visual department which in my opinion is somewhat key.

    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.

    Nice paring of legends Vincent Price and Roger Corman. Solid '60's Gothic horror.

    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!
