The Tomb of Ligeia Reviews

September 11, 2019
The color correction here marks a decidedly decadent atmosphere, which evolves from the romantic initial scenes to the fiery climax. [Full Review in Spanish]

The latest and best of the Price/Corman/Allan Poe chiller-dillers relies less on Gothic gimmicks and more on odd quirks of the human personality, all set in the ravishingly English setting of an abandoned abbey.

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.
