Three horror stories based on the writings of Nathaniel Hawthorne. In the first story titled "Dr. Heidegger's Experiment", Heidegger attempts to restore the youth of himself, his fiancee and his best friend. In "Rappaccini's Daughter", Vincent Price plays a demented father inoculating his daughter with poison so she may never leave her garden of poisonous plants. In the final story "The House of the Seven Gables", the Pyncheon family suffers from a hundred year old curse and the Pyncheon brother returns to his home to search for a hidden vault.Written by

As Alex and Sylvia finish their conversation while Carl is upstairs getting her wedding gown, they are both standing, and Alex is holding Sylvia by her upper arms. When Carl comes down the stairs with the gown, Sylvia stands up from sitting in the chair (she was standing just a minute ago) and Alex is holding a drink that wasn't there before. See more »

I may not be very objective in reviewing this movie, because I've seen it for the first time when I was young and was very impressed then, an impression, which one doesn't forget of course... I still love it, each time when I see it again, because of the three intelligent stories (one about an elixir of life and a tragic love triangle, one about a poison which separates two lovers, and one about a haunted house), which of course in view of the movie's age don't contain splatter elements but unfold a subtle horror and especially because of the atmosphere with the wonderful kitschy set and colors, which gives the movie, beside of the dated special effects, the typical and irresistible charm of old trash...
