Moria gives it 4 out of 5 stars and says, "This was the film that showed that Roger Corman was a serious filmmaker and had his work re-evaluated by critics in the 1960s". 1000 Misspent Hours says,
the film was a big success for the studio, and it is hardly a shock to see that AIP continued producing Poe movies long after Corman got sick of directing them.
Classic-Horror.com says, "Although Corman's skills as a director had not yet completely matured, the adaptation was solid, both in concept and execution" and agrees with other reviewers that this one is the best of the Poe series. It gets a score of 87% at Rotten Tomatoes.
