Description

A trilogy of shock and terror! In his earlier Edgar Allan Poe films, Roger Corman took short stories by the great Gothic master and expanded them into full-length features. Here, by contrast, the stories stay short, the only other thing they have in common being the participation of Vincent Price. In 'Morella', Price plays a tormented man forced to confront a dark family secret when his long-estranged daughter tracks him down. In 'The Black Cat', he's the rakish lover of the wife of Peter Lorre, who naturally plots a deadly revenge. And in the title role of 'The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar', he tries to relieve chronic pain by asking Basil Rathbone to hypnotise him, something that leaves poor Valdemar hovering on the border between the dead and the living. Corman's previous Poe films were played completely straight, and parts of Tales of Terror are as authentically creepy as any of them. But he also stirred comedy into the Poe brew for the first time, particularly in the scenes between Price and Lorre. Special Features: High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation of the feature, transferred from original film elements by MGM Original uncompressed Mono PCM Audio Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing The Directors: Roger Corman, an hour-long documentary on the filmmaker featuring contributions from James Cameron, Martin Scorsese and Ron Howard Cats in Horror Films, critic and novelist Anne Billson discusses the contributions of our feline friends to genre cinema The Black Cat, a 1993 short film adaptation of Poe's classic tale directed by Rob Green (The Bunker) Kim Newman on Edgar Allan Poe, the novelist and critic looks at Poe's influence on the big screen Original Theatrical Trailer Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Dan Mumford Collector's booklet featuring new writing by Roger Clark and Rob Green, illustrated with original stills and artwork
