Our salute to Christopher Lee continues with The Oblong Box, a movie that marks a first in cinema history – it’s the first film to star both Lee and Vincent Price. Loosely adapted from an Edgar Allan Poe story, The Oblong Box has everything a good horror film needs: voodoo, betrayal, live burials, grave robbery, revenge, murder, and the amazing talents of Lee and Price.
