Great acting, Entertaining, Clever, Atmospheric, Creative

See it if You like storytelling and using imagination to visualize characters and settings. Can follow same actors in different roles and stories

Disappointing, Confusing, Insipid, Overrated

See it if You enjoy seeing a great author’s work rewritten, dumbed down and generally disrespected. The works presented here ARE NOT WRITTEN BY POE.

Don't see it if You enjoy reading Poe stories and poems that haven’t been tampered with to try to “bring them up to date.” Read more
