Even after all these years, the tales of Edgar Allan Poe still send shivers down our spines, and a new indie anthology is ready to share some of the man’s most macabre with a whole new audience. Read on for the skinny on P.O.E.: Project of Evil!
Italian horror maestros re-imagine seven Edgar Allan Poe tales in this dark, twisted anthology. Brain Damage Films is set to release the English-language, Italian-made disturbing horror anthology on DVD and On Demand May 6th across the US and Canada.
Following up the successful 2011 film P.O.E.: Poetry of Eerie, in which 15 international directors were brought together to recreate 13 different Edgar Allan Poe stories, some of the original filmmakers have regrouped for this newest experiment.
While the original film’s focus was the poetic and macabre dimension of the infamous Boston author, this sequel focuses instead on the bloody, violent, and disturbing.
Stories include The Pit and the Pendulum, Solo, Loss of Breath, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Tell-Tale Heart, The System of Dr. Tar and Prof. Feather, and The Premature Burial… Like you’ve never seen before!
