This filmed adaptation of an Edgar Allan Poe source poem was green-lit with the intention on cashing in on the 1960s cycle of Poe pictures. This had been a decade which had already featured seven Poe pictures first released prior to this 1965 movie and every one of them had starred Vincent Price who also headlined this Poe picture.

This film is supposedly based on a Poe work (which is quoted a couple of times) and the writer himself is mentioned(a character even finds a vintage edition of his writings), but it strays far from the source material.
It is a mildly interesting flick with a spooky manor house atop a cliff, secret passages, sea creatures and a chicken of dudious gender named Herbert.
Price does a fine job--even though it is an uninspired character. Overall, I'd say this film is worth watching if you happen to catch it on the tube, and you have an hour and a half to waste.
