Synopsis:
Of the several screen versions of Edgar Allen Poe's famous story, this short expressionistic rendition of the mysterious atmosphere and bizarre narrative is the most impressive, escpecially in the way the two American photographers use light, painted sets, optical distortions, mirror reflections, and multiple exposures. One of the earliest examples of the American avant-grande, influencing other filmakers of the horor genre, such as Roger Corman.
