Three horror stories based on the writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne. In the first story titled "Dr. Heidegger's Experiment", Heidegger attempts to restore the youth of himself, his fiancee and his best friend. In "Rappaccini's Daughter", Vincent Price plays a demented father inoculating 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 the Pyncheon brother returns to his home to search for a hidden vault.Written by

Beverly Garland claimed that she saw Vincent Price--who was a connoisseur of fine art, sculpture and furniture, among other things--eying some of the prop furniture on the set of the film. When the shooting ended, those pieces of furniture "mysteriously" vanished. See more »
As the mansion is beginning to implode, Jonathan Maulle (Richard Denning) attempts to remove the slab from the burial vault, but it's thicker than the one Gerald Pyncheon (Vincent Price) placed on it. See more »
Your daughter is a fine specimen, too, isn't she father? A specimen of the most deadly thing that was ever given life.

In "Twice-Told Tales", Vincent Price does what he does best: be mysterious. He appears in three macabre stories. In the first, he plays a man helping another man try to resurrect his dead fiancée. In the second, he plays a man who has a most unusual relationship with his plants. In the third...well, let's just say that there's a dark old house (you can figure it out from there).
I try to imagine being a horny teenager going to see these movies back when they were first released. This would have been the perfect movie to see while on a date with a girl. Thank God that even in the darkest days of "family fun", you could always count on Vincent Price!
