Edgar Allan Poe - From Literature to the Silver Screen!: The literary genius who gave us the mystery, horror and sci-fi genres is under our microscope for this presentation. Poe's achievements in literature are well documented. But not many know about how long Poe has been influencing cinema. In this program we will watch some short films based on Poe's work, and we'll also see clips from feature films as well. We'll talk about the actors and directors who made a career off of bringing Poe's stories to life, Vincent Price, Roger Corman and so many more. So get ready for thrills and chills as we dig deep into the legend of Edgar Allan Poe and the cinematic macabre he so cleverly influenced.
