Movie Diary 10/20/2015

Extraordinary Tales (Raul Garcia, 2015). Animated collection of five Edgar Allan Poe stories, each one with a different graphic texture. A couple of them are knockouts, and the design is complemented by great music and cool vocal choices – Christopher Lee narrates The Fall of the House of Usher, and the soundtrack for The Tell Tale Heart is taken from an old recording of Bela Lugosi. At least one, The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, proves that a lot of Poe needs only language, and no decoration – and how could they leave out the story’s final line??? (full review 10/23)
