Episode list
28 October 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The episode list as mentioned on the DVD box: 1-The Fall Of The House Of Usher 2-The Oval Portrait 3-Berenice 4-The Black Cat 5-Ligeia 6-The Cask Of Amontillado 7-Mr. Valdemar 8-The Tell-Tale Heart 9-Morella 10-The Pit And The Pendulum 11-The Masque Of The Red Death (parts one & two) +BONUS PROGRAM biographical portrait of Edgar Allan Poe

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.
