In "Rappaccini's Daughter", Vincent Price plays a demented father innoculating his daughter with poison so she may never leave her garden of poisonous plants. In the final story "The House of the Seven Gables", The Pyncheon family suffers from a hundred year old curse and while in the midst of arguing over inheritance, the Pyncheon brother kills his sister.

In the 'Dr. Heidegger's Experiment' segment of the film, while Vincent Price and Beverly Garland are having a conversation in front of the portrait of Garland's character, the shadow of a boom microphone can clearly be seen moving back and forth above and between the shadows of Price and Garland.

This overlooked Vincent Price movie, supposedly based on the works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, appears to be the inspiration for "Creepshow," complete with a skeleton hand turning the pages between stories. It has some fun moments, and a great second story involving a plant/human hybrid, but the overall quality is dangerously close to the B-movie level. The acting, sets, effects, etc., are all silly. The last story (The House of the Seven Gables) has a floating skeleton hand that must be seen to be believed. It is worth noting because of the other anthologies it seems to have inspired, but it doesn't have much else to offer. 5/10 stars.
