What was your favorite part of ''Tales of Terror'' (1962)?
I liked the final story the best, with its colorful hypnotism scenes, villainy from Basil Rathbone, gooey special effects and fascinating premise.
I loved Peter Lorre in "The Black Cat," and loved Vincent Price's Percy Dovetonsil impression; but the story (which incorporates "The Cask of Amontillado) is meandering and clunky, the wine tasting scene is long and pointless, and Joyce Jameson (as Annabel Herringbone) is never a welcome presence.
The first story is weak, and the girl playing the daughter is not especially good. But I loved the ghost effects at the end.
