Killing Poe is a dark comedy about an unlikely quintet of college students who, through a series of peculiar events, find themselves enrolled in what was supposed to be an ordinary class on Edgar Allan Poe. Their lecherous professor, Dr. Reginald Reinhold Lynch, proves to be unethical and tyrannical, ultimately pushing the quintet to their breaking point. In a moment of desperation, they hatch a plan to teach Lynch a lesson in true Poe style. When the plan goes awry, the students find themselves at the center of a massive cover-up.This coming-of-age story offers a penetrating critique of the modern university, and a look at the perspective that death and second chances bring when discerning life's paths.
