18 March 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Apparently due to some sort of legal wrangle this 13-part series of Edgar Allan Poe's classic works (made in 1995) was never aired... until now! I recently caught an episode on the Horror Channel and I think the real reason why it was never shown before is because it sucks! I'm quite forgiving of poor production values normally but everything about it looked cheap and nasty. They even titled the episode I saw "The Tell Tail (sic) Heart" which I think shows how little effort was put into it! I'm not sure how they convinced Christopher Lee to get involved but it probably seemed a good idea at the time. It should have stayed unaired as there are plenty of other "bad" adaptations out there which are far more entertaining - AVOID!!!
