The Haunted Palace | 1962
Condemned warlock Joseph Curwen curses a New England village just before being burned alive. More than a century later, Curwen's kindly great-great grandson Charles Ward arrives in town and moves into Curwen's old mansion. Caretaker Simon Orne helps Charles and his wife Ann adjust to their new home. The ancient curse, however, takes hold of Joseph, awakening inside him a long-dormant evil passed on through blood.
