Offers a few genuine thrills.

November 15, 2008 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Twice Told Tales features beautiful Technicolor cinematography ... but it suffers from slow pacing and ... dull storytelling.

A última história é excessivamente longa e acaba prejudicando o filme com sua falta de ritmo, mas as duas primeiras oferecem momentos que compensam uma conferida.

April 13, 2007 | Rating: 3/5

Twice-Told Tales manages to retain a great deal of the literate feel of Hawthorne's work.

Audience Reviews for Twice Told Tales

Vincent Price in three Nathaniel Hawthorne stories: a doctor discovers the secret of youth (and more); a student falls in love with a girl who literally kills anything she touches; a cursed man tempts fate by trying to take back an ancestral treasure from a ghost. Interesting tales, though the first two are a bit stagey and more science fiction than horror.

Price takes a break from doing Poe based movies, and does this anthology horror movie based on Hawthorne stories. It's good, although slightly boring once in a while. I still enjoy it, and if you like Price, you'll want to see it too.
