Tomb of Ligeia (1964) REVIEW
YEAR RELEASED: 1964
DIRECTOR: Roger Corman
CAST: Vincent Price, Elizabeth Shepherd and John Westbrook
PLOT: Some years after having buried his beloved wife Ligeia, Verden Fell meets and eventually marries the lovely Lady Rowena. Fell is something of a recluse, living in a small part of a now ruined Abbey with his manservant Kenrick as the only other occupant. He remains infatuated with his late wife and is convinced that she will return to him. While all goes well when first married, he returns to his odd behavior when they return to the Abbey from their honeymoon. The memories of Ligea continue to haunt him as well as her promise that she would never die.
FUN FACT: Roger Corman has referred to The Tomb of Ligeia as the biggest and most exciting of all his Edgar Allan Poe adaptations.
