The Raven is a 1963 horror spoof starring Vincent Price, Boris Karloff, and Peter Lorre. Deep in mourning for his dead wife, sorcerer Dr. Erasmus Craven (Vincent Price) receives surprising news from a raven that transforms into magician Dr. Adolphus Bedlo (Peter Lorre). Craven's wife, Lenore (Hazel Court), is actually alive, and living with his nemesis, the evil Dr. Scarabus (Boris Karloff). Craven decides to pay a visit to Scarabus' castle to win back his wife, along with his daughter Estelle (Olive Sturgess). Bedlo wants revenge for being turned into a bird and brings along his son, Rexford (Jack Nicholson). Arriving at the castle, Scarabus graciously invites them in for dinner. Bedlo challenges Scarabus' feigned gentility, but his inept attempts at casting a spell only results in making himself disappear into a cloud of smoke. Then, it is time for a duel to the finish between the two master sorcerers. Cult director Roger Corman directs this spooky comedy based very loosely on the famous Edgar Allen Poe poem.moreless
