Another great performance by Vincent Price! The story is mostly solid until the end when the blond lady comes back alive after the first wife is killed (it is unclear how the first wife being alive influences the blonde's life). Other than that, I enjoyed this movie very much.

This movie was insane. I really liked it though. I watched it in film class. The rabbit is freaky. I loved how in the beginning the town is almost directly taken from Halloween. I also liked how the mom was reading Stephen King's IT. The best part by far was the fact that Darko takes his girlfriend to see Evil Dead and that's where the rabbit takes off his mask. There is so much going on in this movie that it is kind of hard to make sense of, but overall the story was good.

There are three mini-movies in this film. All of them are based on stories written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The first mini -movie is Dr. Heidegger's Experiment. It was entertaining. The part where the wife turns into a skeleton made me laugh out loud. The second segment is Rappaccini's Daughter. Out of the three stories, I liked this one the least. It had some cool special effects, but the plot was too "Romeo & Juliet" for me. The last story, House of the Seven Gables, was my favorite. It was the most developed of the three segments.

Based on some of Edgar Allan Poe's stories, the film was split into three different stories with Vincent Price as the main character in each story. This is a Roger Corman film, and it included Basil Rathbone and Peter Lorre in addition to Vincent Price. The best story out of the three was The Black Cat.
