Vincent Price & Roger Corman | Six Gothic Tales coming to Blu-ray from Arrow

From the Merchant of Menace, Vincent Price and the King of the Bs, Roger Corman come six Gothic tales inspired by the pen of Edgar Allan Poe and adapted by acclaimed fantasy screenwriter Richard Matheson. Included is The Fall of the House of Usher and The Pit and the Pendulum (previously released separately, check out my reviews by clicking on the titles); Tales of Terror (which adapts Poe’s Morella, The Black Cat and The Facts in the Case of M Valdemar); The Raven (a comic take on Poe's poem co-starring Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre); The Haunted Palace (which reworks HP Lovecraft’s The Case of Charles Dexter Ward); and the necromantic masterpiece The Tomb of Ligeia, which ended the Poe/Price/Corman cycle. Vincent Price and Roger Corman: Six Gothic Tales on Blu-ray

Due for release on 8 December, but available to pre-order now, the Arrow Films box-set is a limited edition run of just 2000 copies, featuring all six features in high definition blu-ray (1080p), with original uncompressed mono PCM audio and optional English subtitles. The special features have yet to be announced, but will include a 60min documentary about Roger Corman, as well as trailers, reversible sleeves featuring original and new artwork and a 200-page collector’s book. As Usher and Pit are already available as standalone releases, the other four titles will also be available separately at a later date. There are no plans for any Steelbook releases of these titles.
