Rating: 67/100 -- Like many of its immediate ilk, this one's stagy and outdated and kinda silly - in other words, good stuff.

...The movie looks good and Hazel Court is a dishy villainess...

Rating: 3/5 -- Middling Corman spook show.

Like most of Corman's Poe films, the script (this one by Charles Beaumont and Ray Russell) borrows little more than the central idea and the title from Poe. This one owes a debt to Gaslight and Diabolique Full Review

Jun 21, 2015
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The picture is hurt by the central casting as well as too much narrative recycling required for this to reach feature length, but a nice plot twist allows the movie to end in somewhat satisfactory style. Full Review

Ray Milland emotes, by turns, dour gloominess or manic eyeball-spinning through a weak script that bears too little sense and too many similarities to its predecessors, Usher and Pendulum. Full Review

Rating: 5/10 -- The third of the Edgar Allan Poe adaptations directed by Roger Corman and released by AIP, is... the ugly stepchild of the franchise Full Review
