The Edgar Allan Poe Collection - Volume 1 (Annabel Lee)

Lurker Films, best known for their ongoing series of short, indie flicks based on Lovecraft's tales of horror, released The Edgar Allan Poe Collection, Volume 1 in October of 2008. 

The DVD features three short films, all based on Poe's most famous works: The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven and George Higham's stop-motion animated feature presentation Annabel Lee. Clocking in at 20 minutes, Annabel Lee is a masterpiece of dark sorrow, stuffed to bursting with gorgeous morbid imagery and tragic gothic beauty as our claymation Edgar goes up against faceless angels, skull-headed cherubs and Death Himself to lament the untimely loss of his beautiful young love. 

If you love Poe - and I'm assuming everyone here does - then you must see this DVD offering from Lurker, easily available on Netflix. In the meantime, I offer you some lovely stills to whet your appetite...
