It would be impossible to have a decent list of horror films and exclude Roger Corman. Add to it Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff in a Richard Matheson adaptation of an Edgar Allan Poe’s poem The Raven and you’ve got a 1963 horror classic by the same name. The Raven. Okay, adaptation may be too strong a word. Inspired maybe? But who cares, this is an incredibly fun romp about three fighting magicians who use real magic.
As an aside to my local New England friends, if you’re at Rock and Shock this weekend you can meet Jeffrey Combs who will be promoting his play “Nevermore” about Poe which is coming to the Somerville Theater on Halloween as part of the Edgar Allan Poe Bust Project produced by Izzy Lee and Bryan Moore. And as a bonus Victoria and Jody Price will be on hand to discuss their namesake, Vincent. Swing by if you can!
