  • Audience Reviews for The Premature Burial.

  • The Premature Burial is a horror classic written by Edgar Allan Poe. This is a horror short story on the theme of being buried alive, which was a common fear in this period and Poe took advantage of the public interest.

  • This bizarrely dark but very subtle sense of humor is part of what makes 'The Premature Burial' such an enjoyable film within the Corman-Poe cycle. And Milland does an excellent job stepping in the shoes that were originally tailored for Vincent Price.

  • Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for Dark Tales: The Premature Burial at Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users.

  • The Premature Burial was the first Corman/Poe picture not to expand on the formula, so it is often left behind in the celebration of the series. The story is exceedingly simple.

  • Directed by Roger Corman, The Premature Burial is based on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “The Premature Burial” from 1844. The film is the third entry of what is known as Corman’s Poe films and follows The Pit and the Pendulum in 1961.
