Twice-Told Tales (1963)

Twice-Told Tales (1963), directed by Sidney Salkow.

For Vincent Price fans.

Loose adaptations of three Nathaniel Hawthorne stories: "Dr. Heidegger's Experiment", "Rappaccini's Daughter", and "The House of the Seven Gables".

The production values are good and the actors take it seriously, but all of the stories are very slow and lack any real thrills. Roger Corman was doing much livelier productions at the same time.

Available on Blu-ray from Kino with a meticulous, wide-ranging commentary track.
