Edgar Allan Poe's Chilling Tale of a Fate Too Horrifying to consider! The classic style of literature's most bizarre author, Edgar Allan Poe (The Oblong Box), comes to life in this ghoulish tale of murder and suspense starring acting great Ray Milland (X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes) as Guy Carrell, a medical student and painter whose obsessive fear of being buried alive compels him to build himself a tomb with a view, equipped with everything he can think of to escape death. But it's when his long-suffering wife Kate (Heather Angel, The Informer), convinces him to destroy the tomb; he finds himself in the gravest of danger, trapped in a web of doom so devious and intricate that there's no escape. Produced and directed by the iconic Roger Corman (The Secret Invasion) and beautifully shot in widescreen by the legendary cinematographer Floyd Crosby (Tales of Terror). The top-notch supporting cast includes Hazel Court (The Masque of Red Death), Alan Napier (TV's Batman) and Dick Miller (Gremlins).
