An early Poe knockoff; minor D W Griffith
29 April 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Inspired and vaguely based on Poe's The Telltale Heart and with the words of Poe's Annabel Lee on some of the titles.

Some interesting shots of mad visions and of fiends from hell.

For dance historians a short 'Greek/Roman' dance at a garden party.
