WEFOUNDEdgar Allan Poe's Tales of Terror (Step-Up Classic Chillers)


Written and directed by Eric Stange (The War That Made America, American Experience: Murder at Harvard), the new documentary American Masters – Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive draws on the rich palette of Poe’s evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to tell the real story of the notorious author. The film premieres nationwide Monday, October 30 at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings) and will be available to stream the following day, Halloween, via pbs.org/americanmasters and PBS OTT apps.

Starring Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor Denis O’Hare (This Is Us, American Horror Story, Take Me Out) and narrated by Oscar- and Tony-nominated, two-time Golden Globe-winner Kathleen Turner, American Masters – Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive explores the misrepresentations of Poe as a drug-addled madman akin to the narrators of his horror stories.

This caricature is thanks, in large part, to a high-profile obituary filled with falsehoods, written by his literary rival Rufus W. Griswold. Determined to re-invent American literature, Poe was an influential – and brutally honest – literary critic and magazine editor, who also invented the detective protagonist with his character C. Auguste Dupin, refined the science fiction genre and popularized short stories, actually writing more comedies than horror.

The Raven is one of the better and one of the scariest Dark Tales games in recent memory. The game borrows the horror vibe from Edgar Allan Poe’s masterpiece, The Raven, and waves into a full-fledged storyline. Not long after Allen Dillinger had discovered an artifact that can raise the dead, he began to hallucinate and confused between imagination and reality. Ultimately, his insanity led him to his death. Join Detective Dupin on his investigation and find out the mysteries behind Dillinger’s suicide note to his lost love, Lenore.

This time around, we were actually engaged by the storyline. The story was definitely very loosely based on the source material and this might disappoint some EAP’s fans, but we felt that ERS’ spin on the story was satisfyingly fast-paced and quite interesting. The game was also enhanced by the high production values. The graphics are beautifully drawn and the cutscenes are spectacular, better than what we have seen from ERS-G as of late. In addition, the background music also does an effective job in building the suspense of the game.

Poe and his works influenced literature in the United States and around the world, as well as in specialized fields such as cosmology and cryptography . Poe and his work appear throughout popular culture in literature, music, films, and television. A number of his homes are dedicated museums today. The Mystery Writers of America present an annual award known as the Edgar Award for distinguished work in the mystery genre.

The Allan family had Poe baptized in the Episcopal Church in 1812. John Allan alternately spoiled and aggressively disciplined his foster son. [10] The family sailed to Britain in 1815, and Poe attended the grammar school for a short period in Irvine , Scotland (where John Allan was born) before rejoining the family in London in 1816. There he studied at a boarding school in Chelsea until summer 1817. He was subsequently entered at the Reverend John Bransby's Manor House School at Stoke Newington , then a suburb 4 miles (6.4 km) north of London. [12]

Poe moved with the Allans back to Richmond, Virginia in 1820. In 1824, Poe served as the lieutenant of the Richmond youth honor guard as Richmond celebrated the visit of the Marquis de Lafayette . [13] In March 1825, John Allan's uncle and business benefactor William Galt, said to be one of the wealthiest men in Richmond, died, [14] leaving Allan several acres of real estate. The inheritance was estimated at $750,000. By summer 1825, Allan celebrated his expansive wealth by purchasing a two-story brick home named Moldavia. [15]
