Edgar Allan Poe Collection - Volume 1

The first volume in The Edgar Allan Poe Collection contains some excellent adaptations of Poe's work including George Higham's award winning stop-motion animation short film inspired by the poem Annabel Lee.

Annabel Lee is quintessential Poe—a haunted soul, a lost love and the nocturnal grave-quest. The epic quality of this Orphic adventure includes expressionist visions of a lone figure on a journey through a nightmarish landscape in order to be re-united with his lost love... but first he must overcome the wrath of the "Envious Angels" that ruined his world.

The DVD also contains the short films The Raven by Peter Bradley, The Tell-Tale Heart by Alfonso S. Suarez featuring a performance by European horror legend Paul Naschy, an interview with Poe expert Paul Clemens, and making of featurettes.

Happy Bastille Day!

"The setting is Paris, the date July 14, 1789. By dramatically re-creating the reality of that day and that year — including mass hunger, crushing taxes, and resentment against France's rulers — this program shows what leads the common people of Paris to a desperate act of violence: the storming of the Bastille."
