Selected Shorts: POE! Edgar Allan Poe

Summary : Selected Shorts: POE!

Poe! is a deliciously gripping sampling of the mad imagination of 19th century gothic master of horror and suspense, murder and mayhem, Edgar Allan Poe. The creepy, breathtaking, and soulful classic tales include: "The Masque of the Red Death", the terrifying and ironic story of a nobleman who attempts to seal himself and his friends away from a terrible plague raging outside, performed by Fionnula Flanagan (Transamerica); "The Pit and the Pendulum", a hair-raising first-person account of a man in a torture chamber during the Spanish Inquisition, performed to a fare-thee-well by Stephen Lang (Avatar); "The Black Cat", in which a man's dead pet comes back to haunt him, performed by Tony winner Rene Auberjonois (Boston Legal). Plus there are dreamy, mesmerizing, and haunting readings of Poe's wonderfully-atmospheric best-loved poems, "The Bells", "The Raven", and "Annabel Lee".
