SATURDAY MATINEE HALLOWEEN MOVIE
This time of year I'm thinking of renting a scary movie for Halloween. This one gave me nightmares back in 1963, when I was very small and had no business watching it. This is another Saturday matinee movie -- there were so many of these Vincent Price period pieces, this one directed by Roger Corman, with additional uncredited dialog by Francis Ford Coppola. I'm confused, though. Some places say this is based on an H.P. Lovecraft story called "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward." On the trailer, however, it says Edgar Allan Poe clear as day. Either way, you have one scary story!
