The only one of the eight Poe flicks made by Roger Corman without Vincent Price starring. Ray Milland does a fine job as the miserable, morose, paranoid protagonist, obsessed with being buried alive.

A 2-sided disc that includes two Roger Corman/Ray Milland films, The Premature Burial and X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes. A must for fans of retro-cheese horror/sci-fi.
