Twice-Told Tales (1963) | The vintage Vincent Price horror anthology gets a bare bones UK DVD release

Out this week from Final Cut Entertainment in the UK is the DVD re-release of director Sidney Salkow's 1963 horror anthology Twice-Told Tales, based on the stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne, and each starring Vincent Price.  

Dr Heidegger's Experiment tells the tale of an elderly physician who develops an elixir of life, and uses it to resurrect the woman he was to have married; Rappaccini's Daughter finds a botanist, who has been deserted by his wife, turning his daughter into a poisonous creature whom no one can touch; and The House of the Seven Gables concerns newlywed Gerald Pyncheon scouring his cursed ancestral home for a hidden fortune.

No preview copies were available to check out the quality of the print, while there are no extras to speak of.
