Meet Elizabeth Shepherd at the Show! Elizabeth will introduce the film, conduct a post-film Q&A, and will be selling and signing her latest CD Edgar Allan Poe’s Ligea: A Tale of Mystery and Imagination in the lobby before and after the show.
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).
