Poe Pictures: The Film Legacy of Edgar Allan Poe
No one has influenced the horror genre more than the writings of Edgar Allan Poe. Poe’s works have inspired hundreds of films, and this influence is studied in universities around the globe. This is the first time ever that every Poe influenced film has been analyzed in a single book. Poe Pictures is an invaluable resource to film studies programs and also a critical guide for every fan of these films. Included is a detailed analysis and critical review of the importance of each film, perspectives from many who have worked on these classic films, and over 100 black and white photographs from the films. With insights into where Poe ends and cinematic liberties begin, Bruce Hallenbeck has fashioned a film by film analysis of Poe-inspired films, including Corman’s classic AIP series. These films have never left the imagination of the generation that grew up watching them.
