About The Tomb of Ligeia
- Year Released:
- Drama, Horror
- Directed by Roger Corman
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.
Partial support for Roger Corman's visit to Indiana came from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
