This is another welcome entry in Roger Corman's series of 1960s horror films based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. The King of Horror, Vincent Price, stars as Verden Fell, a tragic figure who has become obsessed with his late wife, Ligeia, whose spirit seems to be omni-present in the form of a black cat and then in Fell's new bride, The Lady Rowena Trevanion (Damien - Omen II's Elizabeth Shepherd.

This is a beautifully-filmed piece of work that makes excellent use of some stunning sets and outdoor locations. Vincent Price puts in a good, highly-watchable performance (as usual) and he is aided by a fine supporting cast. The film is presented in its wide screen format, in a ratio of 2.35:1, on this DVD and looks really beautiful.

I think that this was the last entry in Roger Corman's Poe cycle of films, and, although it is not my favourite entry (The Masque Of The Red Death still gets my vote as it is one of the most visually stunning horror films ever made), it still provides an impressive coda to this legendary series.

There are two items on this disc but only one film. The Tomb is a super film, rich in colour, odd but likeable, and Poe at his best. Corman (director) said he felt this was his best Poe adaptation and I can see why. An evening however is a TV play with Mr Price narrating four stories. There are sets and Mr Price is dressed the part but it is just him. Not what were used to. That said he acts his heart out (literally in the tell tale heart story) but it was a tad disapointing as I was expecting the full works. That said worth having. As always Mr Price (should have been Sir if you ask me).

Vincent Price and Roger Corman team up once again in this delightful and wicked tale. Price mourns his wife Ligeia and buries her and becomes somewhat of a slave to her spirit. But when he meets a new woman his cat is most displeased..... Excellent all round acting but it is the camera of Corman that surprises the most. Using strange angles, moving the camera about in a way seldom seem back in the time this movie was made, the film is superb because of it. The movie does tease us with scenes that start to drag but thankfully it never goes down that route and ends up being a very polished film at just under 80 mins.

In a way, it is a shame that the Poe-Corman cycle, which gave Hammer a run for its money between 1960 and 1965, did not end with "Mask of the red death". That title was scary, unsettling, well-written and beautifully cast..
Don't get me wrong, "Ligeia" is a really commendable film, beautifully shot by the Castle Acre Priory in Norfolk, England but it simply does not top "Red Death" - and it probably came with too many expectations following the success of "..Death".
The reasons for this? I can see three:
First, the story, even if very scary and mysterious, is quite convoluted, and does not resist thorough analysis (I won't go into details here to avoid posting spoilers).
Second, the whole story evolves around a cat, and after "Tales of Terror", it is becoming a bit redundant to see a cat in Corman-Poe movies...
Third, and most important, the cast does not really do it for me. Price remains as towering as always, but Elisabeth Shepherd, who is carrying the film on her shoulders, does not have the necessary charisma and is no match for Hazel Court and Jane Asher in "Masque". The lesser said about John Westbrook, the better. As a result, Vincent Price is alone on screen most of the times.
Don't get me wrong though, we have a very good film here, with some very efficient scary scenes (in the cemetary in particular and towards the end), but it is shadowed by the success of its predecessor and the fact that it is clearly, slightly less good. But it remains within the average quality for this series of films, i.e. very high standards indeed.

"tomb of ligeia" is the second of two films that roger corman and vincent price made together in england after "masque of the red death."

"tomb of ligeia" is more involved than previous corman films; there are more location sequences and the plot is rather complicated to understand. but there are good scenes and vincent price is as reliable as ever. a good effort.

"an evening with edgar allan poe" is a wasted opportunuity.

the stories chosen aren't the best by a long way. "the sphinx" is a waste of time; a disappointing ending and the story doesn't make sense. "the tell-tale heart" is better but the film set is all wrong. it should have a gothic look to it but instead looks more like a western. "the cask of amontillado" is too restricted. "the pit and the pendulum" is by far the best and is a massive compensation. there is some editing to the story but still very well done.

but i'm afraid the direction is non-existent. vincent price spends too much time in one place. why not film him walking along dark corridors whilst acting out the stories? it would have been far superior.

the selection of tales should have been different but also there should have been more of them; "the pit and the pendulum," "the oval portrait," "masque of the red death," "the facts in the case of m. valdemar," "fall of the house of usher" and "ligeia."

that would have been perfect. still, vincent price gives the performance of his career. this is solid proof that he is a highly trained, skilled, dramatic actor and it takes someone with his talent to pull this off.

an interesting concept, but a failure for the most part.
