Tales of Poe

Tales of Poe ★½

This film spends two hours re-imagining three Poe works.

I own a copy of The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allen Poe. "The Tell-Tale Heart" is 4 pages. "The Cask of Amontillado" is 6 pages. "Dreams" is 1 page.

So, your options are: Spend two hours watching a pointless movie, or spend like 10 minutes reading all three original tales and then go play with your dog. He's been a good boy.

The only upside here is a few familiar faces from better movies: Amy Steel and Adrienne King from Friday the 13th films, Caroline Williams from Chainsaw 2, and Debbie Rochon from... um... Axe to Grind?

Re-imaginings can be good. This isn't.
