I Loves this film for the 80's Horror Retro take on the Edgar Allen Poe tale, so many people when re-imaging this old story, make it take place in a modern and dreary location. The set designs where literally out of this world, and the editing style made me reminisce of the 19080's horror films that I loved to watch on VHS back in the day. The story follows Edgar as he begins to unravel a mystery that is in his head and a guilt that he carries with him and the actors are awesome. The on camera talent literally pulls out all the punches here and the performances where what makes an independent film like this stand out in today's over full indie scene.
