If you like Poe, you'll love this!
27 August 2001 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I recorded this off the air and have watched the entire biography, but I'm only commenting here on the adaptation of the classic Poe short story, "The Cask of Amontillado" with John Heard and Rene Auberjonois.

This story has been perfectly adapted according to its original stature and not made up to be something more as many of Poe's stories have been, sometimes successfully, other times not quite so well done. It's tough to stretch a little short story into a feature length film, which is not attempted here. The costumes are excellent, which is an important element in the story, and the performances are wonderful. You won't be disappointed.

I recommend this lovely video, although it will be tough to find, so watch your local listings.
