  1. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Premature Burial

    Corman's Poe adaptations play often like the storytelling of their source material: dramatically stiff and rambly, despite their stylistic artifice. This film is no different. Repetitive and bland, but quite dour and creepy due to the threat being inward then outward, with a proper link with Milland’s mental manifestations. His calm, stiff demeanor actually works here more than Price would have. Nonsense end twist.

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Premature Burial

    As all Edgar Allan Poe movies directed by Roger Corman it is a stylish Gothic movie with good atmosphere and a solid interesting story. Hazel Court has a darker quality over her which make her one of the better female actresses in the genre. Ray Milland is not bad either, but he is no Vincent Price who treats this stuff with a twinkle in his eye as he goes a step too serious for this camp movie.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Premature Burial

    L'histoire d'un médecin londonien au 19eme siècle qui, ayant de fréquentes crises de catalepsie, vit dans la crainte morbide d'être enterré vivant. Encore une solide adaptation de Poe ! www.cinefiches.com

  5. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Premature Burial

    "Just because Corman is incapable, which he is, of making a Bergman film, it's unfortunate that that didn't happen." http://illusionpodcast.blogspot.com/2015/12/episode-84-edgar-allan-poe-adaptations.html
