If you've never seen this film, you must. If you like Roger Corman/1950-1960's schlock horror, you must see this film. I've always been a fan of Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre. What a bonus, a film with all three! And to top it all, it's based on an Edgar Allan Poe tale (okay, so it is very loosely based). The film tells the tale of 3 wizards, Peter Lorre is sort of the bait, with Vincent Price and Boris Karloff pitting their magical knowledge against each other - yes, the good guy does win! Also appearing in one of his very early roles, is a very young Jack Nicholson (as he did quite often in early l960's Corman films) as Peter Lorre's son. Great viewing - a pleasant time is guaranteed for all.

Yeah I love this film, Roger Corman is great and they still scare me now, watched them first as a kid. JACK NICHOLSON IS AMAZINGLY YOUNG - such a nice clean cut american boy. Look what happened. Going to get as many Corman films as I can, just added most to my wish list. Isn't Amazon great, you can look for films and music at your leisure, save them, and think about them and come back and buy or delete. I hate HMV or somewhere like that as they have blasting techno music blaring away and you cant concentrate, so you give up looking and rush to get away from the noise. I have only recently gone on line, never knew what I was missing. NO, I DO NOT WORK FOR AMAZON.
