Trailers from Hell: Joe Dante on Roger Corman’s ‘Tomb of Ligeia,’ Starring Vincent Price

Trailers from Hell: Joe Dante on Roger Corman's 'Tomb of Ligeia,' Starring Vincent Price

Vincent Price Week concludes at Trailers from Hell with “Tomb of Ligeia,” which director and TFH creator Joe Dante calls “an intelligent and satisfying climax to the [Roger] Corman/Poe saga.”

Roger Corman bids farewell to his Edgar Allan Poe series
with a beautifully mounted departure from the heavy stylization of previous
entries, played more like a gothic romance. Vincent Price would go on to
topline an eccentric collection of further Poe “adaptations”, some of
them in name only. Elizabeth Shepherd is a strong proto-Jane Austin heroine,
and also plays Price’s dead wife who haunts him from the grave in the form of a
black cat. It’s an intelligent and satisfying climax to the Corman/Poe saga.
