Three stories adapted from the work of Edgar Allen Poe. A man and his daughter are reunited, but the blame for the death of his wife hangs over them, unresolved.

A man dying and in great pain agrees to be hypnotized at the moment of death, with unexpected consequences.Written by

An enjoyable trip that arrives with few reservations
An excellent film which seems made for the cast that is in it. Each tale excels with Price's presence and I was sad to see the movie end. While not quite as good for Price fans as "Last Man on Earth" or "Pit and the Pendulum," it also is not quite as surreal and comedic as Price, Lorre, and Karloff were in "The Raven." Definitely worth watching and is a great film to introduce younger audiences to possible interpretations of Poe as well as Price, Lorre, and Corman. Recommended
