Coffins, blood and live corpses! A gasping, gnawing, heart-stopping evil lies buried in The Oblong Box. Do you dare unearth its wrath? Vincent Price (The Raven, Twice Told Tales) and Christopher Lee (The Crimson Cult, House of the Long Shadows) are at their terrifying best as a plantation owner with a shocking family secret...and a wealthy doctor desperate to continue his morbid experiments on human flesh in Edgar Allan Poe’s (The Tomb of Ligeia) classic tale of the living dead! Price returns to his English manor from an African trip with his mad, mutilated brother and buries his chained-up sibling alive. When the body is exhumed, the madman—somehow still alive—begins a systematic search for vengeance. Co-written, produced and directed by horror great Gordon Hessler (Scream and Scream Again, Cry of the Banshee) with top-notch cinematography by John Coquillon (Straw Dogs, The Wilby Conspiracy).
