Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The third of the Edgar Allan Poe adaptations directed by Roger Corman and released by AIP, is... the ugly stepchild of the franchise"
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Middling Corman spook show."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Ray Milland emotes, by turns, dour gloominess or manic eyeball-spinning through a weak script that bears too little sense and too many similarities to its predecessors, Usher and Pendulum."
‑ Mark Bourne,
"Like many of its immediate ilk, this one's stagy and outdated and kinda silly - in other words, good stuff."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
