Christopher Lee only does the intro and the final except for Masque of the red death in which he plays a leading part. This series have been made on a small budget something you can see quite clearly.
As far a i known the series stick pretty close to the stories but they never bring fear, drama or any kind of emotion to it's viewer. For Christopher Lee fans it is great to have seen But for E.A. Poe lovers... I have my doubts.
