Cold Places & Hearts
11 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

'Cool Air' - Barbara Rush plays a woman who pays a visit to a colleague of her late fathers only to find him in a peculiar state: while charming, he insists on staying in his refrigerated apartment for undisclosed reasons, though of course she will discover the chilling truth. Another first-rate H.P. Lovecraft adaptation is quite memorable.

'Camera Obscura' - Rene Auberjonois plays a cold-hearted money lender who gets a harsh punishment while trying to collect from a Mr. Gingold(played by Ross Martin) who owns a most obscure and deadly toy... Harsh tale indeed is superbly acted and directed, with much striking imagery, though morally dubious when carefully considered afterwords.

'Quoth The Raven' - No way to treat this masterful Poe Poem. Nevermore indeed!
