Tales of Terror Movie Review

Three more Twice-Told Tales from Edgar Allen Poe's works, all starring Vincent Price. Only the second is worth watching -- an odd, but effective combination of "The Black Cat" and "The Cask of Amontillado" -- with Peter Lorre stealing the show as the madman who walls up his archrival and wife in the cellar, only to be undone by a meowing cat. Worth watching for this half hour alone, but skip the rest.
