In Providence, a husband and wife die in a botched robbery; we see flickers of his last memories. His heart goes to Terry Bernard, a single father raising a girl with a rare degenerative disease. After the operation, Terry has flashes of memory from the last moments of the dead donor's life. Then, he recognizes one of the donor's killers and follows him into an alley. Within days, Terry becomes an unwilling avenger, with a police detective on his trail. Meanwhile, he begins a romance with his daughter's doctor, his moods complicated by memory flashes, the donor's deepening presence in both Terry's mind and body, and the unexplained bond among the donor's killers. Can this end well? Written by

Tell Tale is a modern adaptation of Poe's The Tell Tale Heart. This movie contains all aspects of an independent hit film. Characters undergo change, there is conflict and resolution, and a twist all the way through to keep you on the edge of your seats til the end. I enjoyed watching Terry slowly put together the pieces of his mystery heart as he also tries to maintain his sanity and take care of his daughter. This movie takes on more of the thriller aspect than a horror as Poe intended but I feel writing it as a thriller did Poe justice. Since it was an adaptation I feel the direction the film went was justified. I would definitely recommend this movie to all and would watch it again.
