Vincent Price in “War Gods of the Deep” (1965) Movie Review



Barkey takes a deep dive into the world of “War Gods of the Deep” (1965), a Disneyesque attempt to copy the success of Disney’s “20,000 Leagues under the Sea” (1954). Instead of a riff on Jules Verne, this one originated with a poem by Edgar Allan Poe. Vincent Price, Tab Hunter, David Tomlinson, and Susan Hart star. Jacques Tourneur’s directs what would be his last film.
