Storyline

Following up the successful "P.O.E.: Poetry of Eerie", some of the original filmmakers regrouped for this newest experiment which aims to bring the tales of Edgar Allen Poe to life through the distinct lens of Italian horror with spoken English. While the original film's focus was the poetic and macabre dimension of the infamous Boston author, this sequel focuses instead on the bloody, violent and disturbing. Stories include 'The Pit and the Pendulum', 'Solo', 'Loss of Breath', 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue', 'The Tell-Tale Heart', 'The System of Dr. Tar and Prof. Feather', and 'The Premature Burial'...

Way to artsy/indie to do Poe justice
14 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

My quick rating - 4,8/10. I am a huge fan of Edgar Allen Poes books/stories. That being said, this movie does no justice to them. First, here are the stories that are done (anthology style movie) : 'The Pit and the Pendulum', 'Solo', 'Loss of Breath', 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue', 'The Tell-Tale Heart', 'The System of Dr. Tar and Prof. Feather', and 'The Premature Burial' . I have read all but one and could identify 4 out of 7 of them (scary I couldn't identify two) Reason I couldn't figure out which story it was? The movie was made in such a "I am trying so hard to be indie and artsy, I have lost the idea of the story itself" way that it loses all focus. This is why it isn't rated better. I really doubt this would be how the legend would want to see his films. The mood is set fairly well per story and the music is often fitting, but the acting was horrendous or non-existent. THe realistic gore was OK, but at times looked a bit strange. Can't quite place why, just out of place.I applaud the effort that these filmmakers put in even if they tried WAY too hard. At least I know they did their homework and read the classic stories so I have faith in literature again. Only for true Poe fans and even then, you may walk away with a lower rating then I gave.
