Trivia

Different real-life murders have been cited as the inspiration for Poe's tale. Among them is the 1830 murder of Joseph White of Salem, Massachusetts. The special prosecutor on the case, Daniel Webster, published his Argument on the Trial as a pamphlet. In the text, he writes that the murderer's guilt will eventually reveal itself and that "the secret which the murderer possesses soon comes to possess him...it overcomes him...He feels it beating at his heart, rising to his throat, and demanding disclosure. He thinks the whole world sees it in his face, reads it in his eyes, and almost hears its workings in the very silence of his thoughts. It has become his master." See more »

Poe's Woes
2 November 2016 | by shawnblackmanSee 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.
