Fell is something of a recluse, living in a small part of a now ruined Abbey with his manservant Kenrick as the only other occupant. He remains infatuated with his late wife and is convinced that she will return to him. While all goes well when first married, he returns to his odd behavior when they return to the Abbey from their honeymoon. The memories of Ligeia continue to haunt him as well as her promise that she would never die. …The Tomb of Ligeia (aka. Tomb of the Cat )

Product Description 

Star Vincent Price (Theater of Blood, The Last Man on Earth), director Roger Corman (The Premature Burial, The Raven) and screenwriter Robert Towne (The Last Detail, Chinatown) hook up for horror in Edgar Allan Poe’s most terrifying tale of passion, possession and purr-fect evil! When a dead wife sinks her claws into immortality—and comes back as a ferocious feline—she leads her husband’s (Price) new bride on a deadly game of cat and mouse. And when the fur starts flying, she soon learns that even in death… she can land on her feet! Elizabeth Shepherd (Damien: Omen II) and John Westbrook (Room at the Top) co-star in this chilling conclusion to Corman’s Poe cycle of films.
