The crime in this horror/drama is clearly using the Poe name cheaply at the correct time.

This was very disappointing considering it was a horror/thriller with a character supposedly a distant relative of E.A. Poe himself, as if writing talent was passed down like hair, eye color or even athletic ability he still managed to become a brilliant writer. He is at a time where he hasn't worked in years & is in danger of losing his good name in the literary society so he takes this job as an order from his agent or face complete career failure. It consisted of a two week stay doing a biography of a Mr. Jack Conway who insist's on being called "Chef". Who just happens to be the brilliant and wealthy Dr. Andrew Casey a serial killer in which when caught by his wife became imprisoned at Marathon County Asylum for the criminally insane for eleven years. Oddly he is released, said to have been rehabilitated. He moves to Los Angeles under the alias Mr. Jack Conway. Upon Poe's first night at Conway's house he decides to toss in one of the several VHS tapes that were lying around in his room.

This is where it gets weird for me because Mr. Poe discovers exactly what has been & continues to go on in Mr. Chef's house. Is he also that absurd of a fellow to simply discard what is taking place in front of his very eyes and decide to stay & enter the total murderous & cannibalistic world of Mr. Chef? Well it sure is immediately present from the start that there was no rehabilitation done at the asylum.

Now as far as the film goes, it's no budget low budget and the acting is horrible. I don't recommend it, but if you have a need to feed your C movie horror craving & are hungry for some cannibalism then go for it, actually just avoid it period it's that bad. It's like the other review said, I found myself getting up to take a leak, get a drink & something to eat without pausing the film, it's that bad.
