Loosely based on H.P. Lovecraft's novel THE CASE OF CHARLES DEXTER WARD, this fright flick opens with a warlock placing a curse on a group of villagers about to burn him at the stake. Generations later, the warlock's descendant returns to the village to pick up where his ancestor left off.Written by
Roger Corman decided to do an H.P. Lovecraft story as a break from his Edgar Allan Poe series while keeping the elements that made it successful. American-International took no chances. It gave the film a "Poe" title and marketed it as another in the series. See more »
Good thriller; Debra Pagent's last movie. Price & Chaney together for the first time.
Good thriller with Vincent Price and Lon Chaney in the same movie for the first and only time. Also Debra Pagent's last movie. Debra by the way is stunningly beautiful in this movie. One of Vincent's best acting roles by playing two different personalities. Plot was a bit thin but the acting made this movie.
