More macabre fun from Edgar Allan Poe, Roger Corman and Vincent Price! Seeking escape from a mournful exile caused by the death of his beloved wife, Verden Fell (Price) marries the young and vivacious Lady Trevanion (Elizabeth Shepherd). Soon, the spirit of the late Ligeia abruptly besieges Verden’s quest for happiness! Based on Poe’s short story Ligeia, this Halloween favorite highlights an early script by Robert Towne (Chinatown).
