The Raven


1965       Vincent Price

"The Raven" tells of three sorcerers in Fifteenth Century England - a primitive time ruled by magic, fear and superstition. One sorcerer, Dr. Erasmus Craven (VINCENT PRICE), has been inactive since the apparent death of his wife, Lenore (HAZEL COURT) and with his daughter Estelle (OLIVE STURGESS) still mourns her loss. One night he is startled by the appearance of a talking raven at his window and learns that it is a fellow magician, Dr. Bedlo (PETER LORRE) who has been made into the bird for daring to challenge the power of Master Sorcerer, Dr. Scarabus (BORIS KARLOFF).

When Dr. Bedlo regains his human form, he tells of seeing a woman resembling Lenore at Scarabus' castle and enlists Craven's aid in gaining revenge. Bedlo and Craven, together with Estelle and Rexford, Bedlo's son (JACK NICHOLSON), journey to Scarabus' castle and arrive safely despite mysterious interruptions which peril the entire party. Dr. Scarabus greets them as a disarmingly charming host and at a lavish dinner banquet pays tribute to Craven's magic and allays suspicion

about Lenore. However, we soon learn that Scarabus is really scheming to learn the secrets of Craven's special and long inactive magical powers.

The mystery further unravels when Craven's late wife Lenore appears on the scene - very much alive. She had tricked Craven into believing her dead so she could desert her husband and daughter for the comforts of Scarabus' wealth and power. It was Lenore who tried to prevent the party from coming to Scarabus' castle in an effort to protect her scheme. Now Scarabus admits his evil designs and imprisons Craven, Bedlo, Estelle and Rexford, threatening to torture the girl unless her father reveals the secrets of his magical powers.

When Scarabus, in a rage, once more changes Bedlo into a bird, the Raven cuts Craven's bonds, enabling him to engage Scarabus in a fantastic duel of magic, each pitting the full extent of his power against the other in a fight to the finish.
