Five of Edgar Allan Poe’s best-known stories are brought to vivid life in this heart-pounding animated anthology featuring an all-star voice cast including Sir Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi and Guillermo del Toro. Murderous madmen, sinister villains and cloaked ghouls stalk the darkened corridors of Poe’s imagination, as his haunting tales are given a terrifying new twist by some of the most beloved figures in horror film history.
