"An immersive psychological thriller kills with a stellar visual and audio design, but lacks coherence in the narrative. The participants are cast as the new members of The Poe Society and are invited to follow the characters through the labyrinth of Underground."
"The first hour is a mixer for the audience to get to know the characters…But once the séance goes awry, the show does too. The characters become possessed by spirits of Poe or his family …the characters are possessed, and, whether catatonic, cataleptic, psychotic or just plain frantic, are too much of the same."
"As for the show, it may be 'the only story-driven, multi-room immersive experience in the heart of Times Square,' but as written by Nate Raven it is very thin on information about 19th century writer Poe…it is mainly participation in a séance…which is neither spooky nor scary."
