Produced by American International Pictures as a follow-up to Roger Corman’s hit The Raven, this marvelously goofball horror spoof brings together a dream team of genre greats: Vincent Price as a boozehound undertaker who takes matters into his own hands when the dead body business dries up; Peter Lorre as his much-kicked-around assistant; Boris Karloff as a doddering, dearly hated father-in-law; and, out-hamming them all, Basil Rathbone as a Shakespeare-spouting would-be victim who just won’t die. Tourneur’s smoothly atmospheric style provides an ideal canvas for his stable of veteran scene-chewers to let loose their mischievous screwball interplay.
