THE RAVEN is a classic of its kind for all the right reasons. First and foremost there's the inspired teaming of Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Peter Lorre, the screen's then-current titans of terror. Price and Lorre had appeared successfully a year earlier in Corman's TALES OF TERROR, while Price and Karloff hadn't worked together in a feature since Universal's TOWER OF LONDON in 1939, THE RAVEN would mark the first teaming of all three of these screen villains. Sensing a Laurel and Hardy-style camaraderie between Price and Lorre, writer Richard Matheson concocted a medieval horror satire complete with wizards, sorcery and gleeful black comedy.
