From the Merchant of Menace, Vincent Price, and the King of the Bs, Roger Corman, come six Gothic tales inspired by the pen of Edgar Allan Poe.

In The Fall of the House of Usher, a young man learns of a family curse that threatens his happiness with his bride-to-be. In The Pit and the Pendulum, a brother investigates the untimely death of sister, played by Barbara Steele. Tales of Terror adapts three Poe classics, Morella, The Black Cat and The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, each starring a horror icon. The Raven is a comic take on the famous poem concerning three rival magicians. In The Haunted Palace, a newcomer in a New England town is suspected of being a warlock. And in The Tomb of Ligeia, filmed in Norfolk and at Stonehenge, a widower's upcoming marriage plans are thwarted by his dead first wife.

The six films boast a remarkable cast list: not just Price and Steele (Black Sunday), but also Boris Karloff (Frankenstein), Peter Lorre (M, The Beast with Five Fingers), Lon Chaney Jr (The Wolf Man, Spider Baby), Basil Rathbone (The Black Cat) and a very young Jack Nicholson. Adapted for the screen by Richard Matheson (The Twilight Zone, I Am Legend) and Robert Towne (Chinatown), these Six Gothic Tales now rank as classic examples of sixties horror cinema.

Must have !!

Managed to finally get round to getting this just before it seemed to have gone out of print. Arrow have put together another fantastic box set. 6 movies with lots of extras plus an absolutely amazing 200 page hard back book. If you can get one at a good price then get it.

Six Gothic Tales ...

Arrow Video doesn't kid around ... every collector or movie buff knows that they always put a lot of effort into their releases, and this excellent Box-Set is no exception to this rule. Every Price or Poe or Corman aficionado will get his (or her) money's worth - and who knows, maybe their little tell-tale heart might even skip a beat or two, when opening this beautiful package?

Fantastic Fantasy

This is a fantastic box that belongs into the house of every horror fan and every movie fan in general. Great movies with a great book at a great price.

Awesome Arrow Films pack, with strong materials, good presentation and grat films.

Six Gothic Tales

an excellent release by Arrow Films of six of the Roger Corman, Vincent Price and Edgar Allen Poe film series with all films packed with Documentaries and commentaries for each film I do not know how not to recommend this release as it also has a nic2 200 page book with full reprints of comics for three of the titles in the collection.
