Poe’s Phantasmagorical Perversions.
The haunted genius of Edgar Allan Poe is the subject of this show. Poe’s radically weird and frightful visions, his melancholic, strange life and his wonderful pageant of tortured, demented characters, are unlike anything else. We will analyse his tragic life and ascertain why he is so important in the history of horror. Plus an analysis of the (mainly Roger Corman) film adaptations of his work.
Hosted by James DC, with Howard Aggregate and John Riley. Repeated on Tuesday 17th May, 1 – 2pm (GMT)
Clip : The Fall of the House of Usher (1928, Watson/Webber)
