Did You Know?


Director Dario Argento originally planned a cable show based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. George A. Romero had agreed to direct the pilot hour "The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar", Michele Soavi was inked for "The Masque of the Red Death (which had been Romero's original choice) and Richard Stanley was up for "The Cask of Amontillado" (Michael Gambon had been cast as Fortunato and Jonathan Pryce as Montressor). Sadly Romero struck out and only one further episode ("The Black Cat") written and directed by Argento himself was produced. The other scripts ended up on the shelf. See more »

Great horror film
15 July 2001 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

This film dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe contains 2 of his stories. "Mr. Valdemar", directed by George Romero & "The black cat" directed by Dario Argento.

The first story or segment is very good. The second is even better, although I didn´t quite understand the end of it.

If you like straight good horror films then you must watch this one.

But remember you´re going to watch two Edgar Allan Poe stories and no matter who´s directing them, got it?.
