Three directors each adapt a Poe short story to the screen: "Toby Dammit" features a disheveled, drugged and drunk English movie star who nods acceptance in the Italian press and his producers fawn over him. "Metzengerstein" features a medieval countess who has a love-hate relationship with a black stallion - who, it turns out, is really her dead lover. "William Wilson" tells the story of a sadistic Austrian student with an exact double whom he later kills.

Maurizio Manetti - director (segment "Toby Dammit")
As long as it reflects the death throes and decay of our capitalists system - a Western can claim to be militant. That's what Lukcas says. We'll create historical characters sociologically contextualized. Thus, our two outlaws represent irresponsibility and anarchy. The busty girl is the illusory escape into the irrational. The prairie is beyond history and the bisons are man's struggle for subsistence.
