Sepulchre Face

When the strange Mr. Fell had remarried
He strained from the baggage he carried
To wed can be daunting
With dead wives a-haunting,
And a pain when one doesn't stay buried.

Vincent Price is Verden Fell, haunted by his first wife Ligeia, in The Tomb of Ligeia (Roger Corman, 1965). This was the last of eight Poe adaptations by Corman. Title by David "Joker Face" Cairns. Image source: That Obscure Hollow.

I'm reminded of the classic --

I do not like you, Dr Fell
The reason why, I cannot tell
But this I know, and know full well
I do not like you, Dr Fell.
