Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Slack storytelling and an unsatisfying ending make this the weakest picture in the Poe-Corman-Price series."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Corman's widescreen framing, the blazing Technicolor photography, and the effectively maximized production values created a convincing, if twisted, world."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com

‑ Keith Phipps, The Dissolve
"A terrific, atmospheric little spooker."

"The apex of Corman's skill for reworking AIP's standing Gothic sets to get the maximum possible bang for his buck."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Vincent Price is deliciously maddening in a dual role..."
