Title: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 19, 2009, 12:33:40 AM
I'm not sure but I remember this old film and a man gets entombed alive.

I think maybe Vincent Price was in this? (Maybe) ...

I know it's not "The Cat" with Vincent Price. It sure looked like him though.

What else? hmm ... Oh, it looked like the same time period as The Pit and the Pendulum.

It was in color. (very medieval looking)

I'm sorry thats all I remember. (for now) ... Please and thank you.

Venomx, this might be Tales Of Terror (1963) specifically the episode "The Black Cat" :smile:

Thanks for the help ... but thats not it.

Remember I said "I know it's not "The Cat" with Vincent Price" I forgot the full title was the "Black cat".

But no though, it's not Tales Of Terror, I have that.

Thanks for trying. Did any other movie have a part with a man that gets entombed alive? Please and thanks.

Was it "The Premature Burial"?  That was a short story by Edgar Allen Poe and I believe it was one of Roger Corman's Poe adaptations he did in the 60's with Vincent Price.

Hmmm I'm almost sure it's not , but thanks for trying though.


Info on The Premature Burial - A man accidentally buried alive!. based in a history from Edgar Allan Poe.

The thing is - the movie I remember: the evil man layed the stone work while laughing, the other guy was screaming.
"Please nooo please help!!!" like that <

Then again, maybe it wasn't a Vincent Price at all? But 1 thing for sure it was medieval times.

Was this perhaps an adaptation of The Cask of Amontillado?  The description certainly sounds like it. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XTmWag6wfw

The above doesn't seem like it, since it is purely Vincent Price narrating it alone.  But, it's the closest thing I could find.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: Ash on August 19, 2009, 11:18:44 AM
I haven't seen the screen adaptation for it, but I second Jim's nomination for The Cask of Amontillado.
That's one of my favorite Poe stories and was the first thing I thought of when reading your original post.

(not 100% on it, though)


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 19, 2009, 11:32:22 AM
Wow thats funny my wife told me the same thing - sounds like the book The Cask of Amontillado.

Now I just need to find a movie version and I'm all set. (but still looking)

Thanks for all the help.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: 2xSlick on August 19, 2009, 01:38:17 PM
If it turns out to not be Cask, it could be one of the six or seven versions of The Canterville Ghost. I've only seen the 1944 one but it contains a scene where a man is walled up in the cellar by his father because he wouldn't participate in a duel. His ghost then haunts the castle. It's a comedy.



Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 19, 2009, 04:19:55 PM
Thanks Slick, Yeah I'm still looking though ... this one is very difficult, I know. (Sorry guys).

I will check out Cask and The Canterville Ghost, but I'm sure is wasn't comedy.

I still need to find a movie version for The Cask of Amontillado.

Thanks again everyone.

Post by: mrcoolasice on August 20, 2009, 01:04:12 AM
"The Oblong Box" with Vincent Price? The costumes were meant to be Edwardian, I think. The supernatural element was based around voodoo.

It's the only Price feature film I can recall where a person is buried alive but it's not behind a wall.

Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 20, 2009, 01:18:41 AM
I think Vincent Price was the "evil guy" though. Yeah I'm almost sure he was doing the stone work.

Thats even if it was a Vincent Price movie, the actor sure did look like him though.

I also remember a huge castle now ... same outfits from The Pit and the Pendulum. (well, almost the same)

A medieval village just popped up in my head, but I'm not so sure. (this is driving me crazy lol)

Again, thanks for trying. I do appreciate all the help.

EDIT*

I just remembered something! The man who was entombed alive, was drugged 1st then chained to a wall.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: 2xSlick on August 20, 2009, 11:17:24 AM
Well that eliminates Canterville Ghost. His father was sure that his son wouldn't be hiding in the cellar, so he bricked it up. It was when he had almost finished when the son came forward and pleaded to be let out.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: Jim H on August 20, 2009, 04:20:47 PM
Drugged than chained to a wall?  If it's not the Cask of Amontillado, it's ripping it off hardcore.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 20, 2009, 04:30:13 PM
Now I just need to reseach a 1960 or 70's version of Cask of Amontillado (movie).

I'm super sure the film I remember was made in the 60's or 70's.

I do appreciate all the help.

I hope you find it...  In the meantime..

Isn't this scene in one of the Phibes movies? I've seen it too.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 22, 2009, 09:13:19 AM
I will look into that, thanks Rayo :thumbup:

Btw masque of the red death ... Did Price entomb anyone alive in that?

I think thats it! I remember Him with that black getup on. But Im still not 100% sure yet ...

Can someone confirm masque of the red death entomb scene?


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: Bargle5 on August 25, 2009, 06:09:43 PM
Venom, I taped "The Masque of Red Death" a while back, but I haven't watched it yet. I've seen bits and pieces before, but not the whole thing, so I don't know offhand if the scene is in there. I'll watch it tonight and let you know.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 25, 2009, 06:13:23 PM
Cool! Thats very nice of you, yes please let me know. Thanks again Bargle5 :thumbup:


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: Bargle5 on August 25, 2009, 09:44:45 PM
Sorry to report that no one gets buried alive in the film. There is a man chained to a wall in the dungeon, but he is just another prisoner there, no entombing. At the end Vincent Price's character is chased into a darkened room where he dies, but there's no walling in.
There is a large castle in the film and a small village.

Rereading this thread puts me in mind of another film with some of the elements you describe, but again, no entombing alive of anyone. That film is Curse of the Werewolf with Oliver Reed. The beggar character in the film does get sent to and dies in the dungeon, but doesn't get entombed that I recall. There is a castle and a village. Just in case, I'm including a link to the IMDb comments page for it. There's usually more detailed descriptions included in the reviews there.

Aww ... Oh well. Thanks a lot for trying though, I do appreciate all the help. I have The Curse of the Werewolf, no thats not it. I wonder if it is in one of the Dr. Phibes movies? ... well, thanks again everybody.

I'm always here. I read this post everyday, so if any new info, just let me know. Thanks. :smile:


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: Rayo Casablanca on August 27, 2009, 07:40:03 PM
Huge castle. Pendulum. Someone walled up alive. Famous older actor.
All of that is in "Castle of the Living Dead" (a.k.a. Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism)
http://www.badmovieplanet.com/3btheater/c/castleofwalkingdead.html

What'cha think?


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on August 27, 2009, 08:04:46 PM
That sure sounds like it, only 1 problem, was the person walled up a man? I'm 100% sure was a man.

That's a really good find though! Thanks alot Rayo.

I got lucky, look what I found on youtube - Torture Chamber of Dr. Sadism. I'm watching right now.

EDIT - Nope, thats not it. Thank you for trying.

What ever the name of the movie was the plot was "The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe if you are thinking of the same one I am.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on September 28, 2009, 06:27:14 PM
Im still looking lol, I cant find a singal 60s or 70s movie about it though ...


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: Tor-Man on March 13, 2010, 07:42:23 PM
I'm pretty sure it was Master of Horror, which was a '60s film that featured an adaptation of The Cask of Amontillado. It used to turn up on late-night TV all the time.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: Skull on March 16, 2010, 01:16:55 PM
I'm not sure but I remember this old film and a man gets entombed alive.



Oddly I've seen a few dozen stories that are based on the same concept... people are entombed alive.


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: JaseSF on March 16, 2010, 06:56:57 PM
Tales of Terror (1962) did a version of "The Cask of Amontillado" story with Peter Lorre and Vincent Price. Pretty sure "The Black Cat" was mixed in with it too.

I don't know the film Venomx is looking for, but I just want to confirm the statement that the tale in "Tales of Terror" with Lorre and Price was a combination of Poe's "The Black Cat" and "The Cask of Amontillado."


Title: Re: Entombed Alive, Buried alive behind a stone wall?
Post by: venomx on March 11, 2011, 12:40:50 PM
No it was not in Tales of Terror... Thank you though.

I'm still on the look out.

I also recall the evil man talking to the "doomed man" as he was putting the last stone in the wall.

But I am sure, 100% it's a 60's or 70's movie... with an old castle.

I bumped to see if any new people have an idea.

Thank you.

Post by: Couchtr26 on March 12, 2011, 12:46:25 AM
Well the problem with using Poe suggestions is that he has a few people that are enclosed in various places.  However, chaining and speaking while working are specific to "The Cask of Amontillado".  However, I have tried looking for movies inspired by the story with no luck.  I'm not sure what else is out there.  There could be an obscure foreign adaptation.  His stories resonated well in France that may be worth looking into for ideas.  I know the '60s and '70s had a few dubbed Poe featured French movies though can't think of any off the top of my head.

Post by: JaseSF on March 12, 2011, 12:26:24 PM
I know I saw a version of The Cask of Amontillado in college which sounds a lot like the film being described here...not sure if it was originally French dubbed into English but it might have been...

I'm pretty sure the movie you're after VX, is The Fall Of The House Of Usher (1960)

Thanks guys... but its not The Fall Of The House Of Usher as I know that movie well.

I think I also forgot to mention the man that was being entombed was blonde witha bowl cut hair cut.

They did that several times on the TV show Dark Shadows.

Here's Reverend Trask walling up Barnabas (at about 2:10):

Here's Tim shaw and Judith walling up Trask (around 2:50):

There was at least one more where Barnabas walled up Rev. Trask.

Post by: venomx on May 02, 2011, 04:30:53 PM
Yeah, but it was definitely a full movie. Thanks though.

Cobble stone path to a castle... evil man talking to the doomed man... the doomed man was blonde 100% sure.

I wish I could remember more.

I need to watch The Masque of the Red Death (1964) with Vincent Price. I think that's THE movie!

If someone gets entombed alive that's it... it sure looks like the time line.

I'll edit this after I watch it.

Post by: Bargle5 on June 03, 2011, 10:38:52 AM
VenomX, you've forgotten. I watched "The Masque of Red Death" almost 2 years ago and it wasn't it. Look back at posts 20 and 22. No blonde bowl cut guy getting walled up.

Post by: Rayo Casablanca on June 04, 2011, 08:35:02 PM
This one's had me baffled for so long. I'm certain I've seen it as well. I've been thinking maybe it was one of Jess Franco's Poe adaptations... Also has Tor-Man's suggestion ever been ruled out: Master of Horror (Argentina made film, showed up on TV all the time) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054134/ or that 1965 University of Michigan production of "Cask..." that showed up on PBS?

There's also this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDdxpxb3l-Y

*bump*

Pretty sure what you're looking for is And the Wall Came Tumbling Down (1984), actually an episode of the UK's Hammer House of Mystery tv show, but I think released in the US as a stand-alone movie.  




Edit: It won't let me post the direct link, but the whole thing is available on youtube.

nope sorry... buts not that it... Ive been looking since 2009

the blonde guy that was entomed had a bowl cut... im 100% sure of it...

I know it's not "The Cat" with Vincent Price. It sure looked like him though.

maybe in story - same time period as The Pit and the Pendulum.

It was in color. (very medieval looking)
