THE OBLONG BOX
1969, MGM Repertory, 91 min, Dir: Gordon Hessler

Loosely adapting an Edgar Allan Poe story aided by the sumptuously atmospheric cinematography of John Coquillon, Hessler spins a tale of the consequences of colonialism. In 1860s England, callous Sir Julian (Vincent Price) hides his disfigured brother, Sir Edward (Alistair Williamson) in the attic after his sibling is victimized by a voodoo curse meant for him. With Christopher Lee, Hilary Dwyer.
