It's late October and that means it was high time for a Vincent Price movie night. Recently I watched:
Merely okay. Lots of padding in this film, but VP is good. Christopher Lee is kind of on automatic pilot in his performance -- but that's about all the effort this movie deserved.
VP's one man Poe show. It's only 53 minutes long, so I'm guessing this was made for TV. "The Telltale Heart" is perhaps the best segment here. "The Sphinx" turns out to be a complete waste of time. VP gives marvelous, scenery chewing performances throughout.
A classic in its own way, although it has its share of padding too. VP and Peter Lorre are excellent together. They could have become the horror movie version of Abbot & Costello.
