Happy Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe!

And to celebrate, I've written a piece on two silent shorts from 1928, both based on Poe short stories: Charles Klein's THE TELL TALE HEART, and James Sibley Watson's and Melville Webber's THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER.

My post can be read on the Fandor blog, Keyframe, HERE.

And sign up for a free one-month trial of Fandor to watch both films. If you're only familiar with the Roger Corman Poe adaptations from the '50s and '60s, these two silent shorts should be a (spooky and weird) treat.
