The Premature Burial Review


Weak
Based on Poe's short story, this trifle features Ray Milland as a cruel man obsessed with being buried alive, going to elaborate lengths to avoid such an end. Of course, you already know what happens. Corman's use of stuffy sets and costumes doesn't endear the film to the audience, making it inaccessible and, for the most part, boring. We impatiently wait for the satisfying conclusion while the rest of the film just slips away.
