Edgar Allan Poe's lover Leonore is struck with malady and buried alive.She goes into shock and is take by Edgar to an asylum for recovery.Unfortunately the asylum is an dangerous place owned by the doctor,who performs ghastly snake venom experiments on his patients."The Spectre of Edgar Allan Poe" by Mohy Quandour features famous Gothic horror writer as the main character.The film is obviously low-budget and it doesn't really work as a period piece.The sets look cheap and the acting is mostly amateurish.There are some eerie scenes,but the pace is sluggish and the cinematography is murky.It seems that Poe's macabre visions were inspired by the questionable events depicted in this film.6 premature burials out of 10.
