Film Review

This was one of Roger Corman's Horror films that was very well produced and had lots of suspense. John Kerr, (Francis) visits a very strange Castle that is occupied by Nicholas/Sebastian Medina, (Vincent Price) and proceeds with a horse and carriage. However, the coachman refuses to go very close to the castle and forces him to walk in order to reach this Castle above a rocky coast and sea. Francis is wanting to visit this Castle and meet up with Nicholas Medina who was married to his sister who had recently died and he had no explanation for her death. Francis did not waste very much time in getting some answers he wanted to know and he was told all kinds of things, but did not believe Nicholas stories. Nicholas had a sister who was visiting him named, Elizabeth, (Barbara Steele) who was very attractive and Francis liked her and she tried to help Francis find out some answers to how his sister had passed away. There are many secret panels that open and close and people are runnin…

Vincent Price plays a distraught widower who believes his dead wife was buried alive. When his brother-in-law pays a visit, he is determined to learn the truth about his sister's death. Then mysterious events start occurring at the cast. Price's Nicholas is going mad and is determined to learn the truth. This story is really influential since it reminds me of the French film, "Diabolique." Without giving away too much already, this film is quite surprisingly, shocking, and disturbing all at once about the pain of loss which Poe was quite accustomed too in his sad life. If Poe came back, he could do no better than Vincent Price who was a Poe fan himself. I felt the story was quite interesting and the shock at the end. You have to wonder what was going to happen in the torture chamber and if justice was done.
