Fresh new take on classic material
30 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kudos to Robert Tinnell and his talented team at Allegheny Image Factory for having the balls to apply a contemporary interpretation to Poe's most famous tales. Purists of Poe's time-locked settings may revolt, but for introducing these stories in a manner more readily consumed by today's audiences, the film is a huge success! As described in the press materials, five of the best known, classic tales of terror by Edgar Allan Poes have been re-shot and re-imagined under contemporary circumstances. While the visual effects at times may betray the budgetary and indie origins of this collection, the concepts and execution are otherwise spot on target. Check it out!
