Metadata:
The final film in Roger Corman’s gothic cycle of Poe adaptations, The Tomb of Ligeia stars Vincent Price as a melancholy nobleman haunted by the memory of his wife Ligeia, whom he suspects is not truly dead but now inhabiting the body of his black cat. Sure enough, when Price hastily remarries a younger woman bearing a strange resemblance to his first wife, Ligeia’s vengeful spirit returns to torment him. With its lavish production design and a moody script by future Chinatown scribe Robert Towne, the film remains a fan favorite. (35mm presentation)


Director Roger Corman is scheduled to be present.
