Edgar Allan Poe
We hear a lot from horror fans that "everything happens in LA or New York; how about something for those of us in-between?" Well, it's not quite the Midwest or the Mountain States, but folks in and around Richmond, Virginia, have one helluva cool event to look forward to!
In some really cool and good news, the one-man stage show Nevermore (event report here) has been extended yet again in Los Angeles.
We here at Dread Central love Gris Grimly and his beautifully macabre contributions to the horror genre. And while I don't speak for everyone at Dread Central when it comes to the brilliant works of Edgar Allan Poe, how can you not agree that his rich and atmospheric poetry is perfectly matched alongside Grimly's twisted mind?
In some of the coolest news today, the one-man stage show Nevermore (event report here) has been given a longer lease on life in Los Angeles. So if you haven't yet seen Jeffrey Combs as Edgar Allan Poe, your days of making excuses have ended!
Every now and again our genre sees a glimmer of hope. For every seven remakes, rip-offs, and sequels, there always pops up a project that sounds cool enough to keep an eye on. Enter James McTeigue's take on Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven.
It's with great pleasure that we announce that Nevermore (event report here) starring Jeffrey Combs in a one-man-show as Edgar Allan Poe has been granted a longer life in Los Angeles!
The only thing better than reading the Gothic works of Edgar Allan Poe is hearing them read by the distinct paranoid voice of horror icon Jeffrey Combs. If you’re a fan of the Re-Animator star – and how could you not be?

Wall Street, they tell me, is on an upturn, and the economy is well on its way to recovery. Hooray and Huzzah!
Richmond, VA - Richmond, Virginia, is a city of contrasts. Signs of the modern world abound, alongside pieces of its rich history. Downtown holds a tiny house, its walls made of stone, in which visitors gather to pay respects to a great man. Though he never lived here, many of his things are now cared for within. And while some come for a glimpse of the property of the mad genius, others can feel him watching, roaming the halls, and looking at the things that once belonged to him.
While the further adventures of everyone’s favorite mad scientist, Herbert West, remain firmly up in the air, you can catch a Re-Animator reunion of sorts this summer if you’re living in or around the Hollywood area.
Despite the fact that two adaptations of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher have been produced in the past three years, indie production company Green Knight Ventures seems convinced that they’ve got a fresh approach to the classic tale.
We recently got an update from one of the hardest working men in horror, Gris Grimly, as to what he's been up to, and two items definitely stood out. First is Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Death and Dementia, the long-awaited sequel to Grimly's 2004 Tales of Mystery and Madness.
A new movie based on Edgar Allan Poe’s Ligeia is on its way, craftily titled Edgar Allan Poe’s Ligeia. Not going to fool anyone with that title, are they? This is the first we’ve heard of it in a long while, so there’s quite a bit to share.
On the right you can check out a very cool T-shirt design for Marc Lougee’s “The Pit and the Pendulum” (review), the first stop-motion Poe adaptation produced by Ray Harryhausen.
