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.
interesting in a morbid sort of way.
A creepy and atmospheric ghost movie.
This was the last of Corman's Poe films, but it is clear that the well of ideas had not run dry.
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!
a really creepy poe adaptation with vincent price as a man whose dead wife won't give him any peace. good performance by elizabeth shepherd as the unlucky woman who marries him. great gothic atmosphere. one of the better corman films i've seen though less known than the pit and the pendulum and house of usher
