The original murder of an old man is not seen in this movie, but a more interesting and prolonged plot involving love and betrayal. The main character, named Edgar Poe, seems a bit unstable from the very beginning, if not just plain creepy. The theme and feel of the original work is alive in this picture as our main character slowly progresses into psychological deterioration. Good climax and plenty of classic gore for a black and white film.
I think Poe would have liked this one.
I too bought this as part of a double feature for $1 at Wal-Mart, and tax free in New Hampshire no less. Great find if you happen upon it!
