Vincent Price's opinion of the film
Vincent Price disliked the movie. In a letter to German actor and puppeteer Gerd J. Pohl, Price wrote: "You're right about From a Whisper to a Scream - terrible! My agent misrepresented it and I was trapped in it". However, before filming, Vincent Price readily agreed to star in it because he was impressed with the confidence in the director, who was just a young and new filmmaker at the time.
