Storyline

"It was many and many a year ago, In a kingdom by the sea, That a maiden there lived whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee; And this maiden she lived with no other thought, than to love and be loved by me . . . ." And so begins one of the most famous and haunting poem's from the enigmatic mind of one of literature's most prolific dark poets, Edgar Allan Poe. This chilling classic adapted for a 21st century audience. EDGAR ALLAN POE'S 'ANNABEL LEE' tells the story of Jack Blythe, an artist who rents a summer house in a quiet beach town to find creative inspiration. He gets more than he bargained for when he meets a beautiful but hauntingly mysterious woman who offers to be his subject for a painting. When Jack discovers that his seductive stranger resembles a woman presumed dead for 18 years, he becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth. Soon, Jack is caught up in a terrifying struggle that will unravel an unsolvable mystery and reveal a horrific secret. Written by Producer

Fun Movie with mystery and suspense, features great scenery
15 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aly Comingore of www.Independent.com wrote about this movie saying: "Michael Rissi's fictional adaptation of the famed Edgar Allan Poe poem undoubtedly takes the cinematic cake in this panel. We follow a young painter through stunning backdrops, pristine lighting, and visually dazzling dream sequences while he slowly uncovers a web of deep, dark secrets surrounding the unsolved deaths of two prestigious members of the community he's visiting."

Selected by Riverside Film Festival, Dances with Films Independent Film Festival, Big Bear Lake International Film Festival, Temecula Valley International Film Festival and Santa Barbara Film Festival, the film features beautiful scenery and an intriguing mystery.

At the SBIFF, as an introduction, the director of the movie commented that there are several inside jokes in the movie with references to films like Citizen Kane, Hitchcock films and other Poe stories. This is definitely a "popcorn picture" with quite a bit of comedy relief, but it has some good scares as well, great paintings, atmospheric cinematography and a compelling music score. As a kind of throwback to old time movie-making, it also has a dramatic twist ending and a revelation scene almost as long as the explanation scene at the end of Psycho. There are other references, but if you don't catch them, the storyline still holds up fairly well.
