This week we are talking about movies based on books or short stories written by the dark and brooding Edgar Allan Poe. Poe is referred to as one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective-fiction genre. His short stories were well crafted and perfect for the medium of film to adapt, over the years many different directors have taken a shot at turning Poe’s work into film. Sadly almost all of them miss the mark, so join us as we sift through the rubble and attempt to find the gems.
