Included here are some of the most inspired translations of Edgar Allen Poe's work into the short film medium. In the award-winning "Annabel Lee," filmmaker George Higham brings Poe's macabre lyricism to unnerving heights with a mesmerizing stop-motion presentation and an orchestral synth score. Peter Bradley's "The Raven" and Alfonso S. Saurez's "The Tell-Tale Heart" also bring stark vision to the writer's masterworks, while Poe scholar Paul provides an insightful interview.
Description by Microcinema:
The first volume in The Edgar Allan Poe Collection contains some excellent adaptaions 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.
