Poe's classic tale of madness, imagined realities and tortured conscience is...not brought to cinematic life here.

This is simply a filmed play; the narrator iterates the story to us as though we are sitting in a theater audience. The only perspectives unique to a camera are that of the lantern close-ups and the 'vulture eye' close ups.

There's nothing worth seeking out here for cinephiles. This ends when the performance ends...for cinema, this would require that some visual aspect lingers and haunts us. It wouldn't have been so hard, it would just take some clever shooting, editing and composition. Even 'The Bells', a silent film, is more memorable.
