This chilling horror film based loosely on a story by Edgar Allan Poe stars Ray Milland as Guy Correll, a man descended from a number of ancestors who suffer from a hereditary paralysis in which they appear dead, while still actually alive. He develops a pervasive concern with death and dying, even going to the length of constructing special devices inside his future burial tomb that will allow him to escape in the event someone prematurely inters him. When he marries, his bride finds his obsession rather disturbing. Events soon take a dark, unexpected turn. The cast includes Hazel Court.
