Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, Hazel Court, Olive Sturgess / Fiction / English
Harry Potter is a mere Muggle, compared to the scandalous wizard Dr. Scarabus!
With throwaway disregard for Poe’s poetic Lenore, Corman casts a comic spell about three ageing wizards. As Vincent Price and Peter Lorre vie for power (and camp credentials) against dastardly wizard Boris Karloff, a young ‘n’ dumb Jack Nicholson saves the day by grimacing away. This is Corman at his most satisfyingly irreverent – and devastatingly hilarious. Did we mention the talking bird?
