Poe's Woes
2 November 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A soldier suffering from PTSD and memory loss, gets therapy at a private home where he stays for the duration of the treatment. The Edgar Allan Poe story The Tell-Tale Heart is updated and used as the soldier's story. The old man in the story is the soldier's doctor who he wants to kill and hide under the floor boards.

Rose McGowan has a supporting role playing a patient who cooks at the house for the other patients. Most of the lines are right from the book which makes it a true adaptation but the director adds a lot to it that ruins Poe's vision.

Most of the film is the soldier's narrative as he is relating everything to an officer seen at the beginning, so of course you get this Shutter Island meets Memento kind of thing going on. Not a very good film as it does drag on and then when you watch the ending it seals the deal on how crappy this flick is.
