Edgar Allan Poe-athonic

For a movie of one of Edgar's pieces, I didn't find this too bad, and if you love a bit of almost-goth, this is pretty good.  It didn't actually get good reviews, but I liked it.  There's one scene where Ligeia answers the door after getting out of the shower, and has a laugh at someone else's expense - the way she laughs, I just love it!  There is an older version of this movie in black & white with Vincent Price.

Here is my favourite song through the beginning of the trailer with Sofya Skya, and then the video shows scenes from the movie.




The earlier version with Vincent Price.



Below is another movie with Vincent Price in. He did a few more Edgar Allan Poe movies.  Here is The Fall of the House of Usher shown below.



And below we have The Raven.




And below The Pit and the Pendulum.
