From the haunting tales of Edgar Allan Poe, comes a chilling trilogy of terror. In "Morella," Locke (Vincent Price) blames the death of his wife on their only child and sends her away. When she returns 26 years later, her mother's spirit inhabits her body and haunts the tortured man. In "The Black Cat," Fortunato (Price) takes a drunken Montresor (Peter Lorre) home and falls in love with Montresor's wife... so the jealous Montresor takes revenge and buries them both alive. "In the Case of M. Valdemar," Valdemar (Price) seeks relief from M. Carmichael (Basil Rathbone), an evil mesmerist. Carmichael has designs on Valdemar's wife and holds him in a tortured state between life and death...until death itself intervenes.
