THE RAVEN (1963 U.S.) D/P: ROGER CORMAN W: RICHARD MATHESON
An A.I.P. quickie starring Vincent Price and drunken Peter Lorre (ad-libbing dialogue apparently) as good wizards fighting evil magician Boris Karloff climaxing in a duel of cheap but effective FX displaying their magical powers? Yes please! Lots of fun and worth watching despite my idiotic review. With Jack Nicholson and Hazel Court. Edgar Allan Poe`s poem is recited at the beginning so Corman could get away with advertising it as another Poe adaptation. THE HAUNTED PALACE is more fake Poe from the same year. See also THE TERROR.
