The Haunted Palace (1963)

Now for the fifth and final Lovecraft film selection. The Haunted Palace is billed as an Edgar Allen Poe adaptation. There are a few Poe recitations, but it's really based on Lovecraft's novella, "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward".

Vincent Price, Debra Paget, Lon Chaney Jr.
