When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's works, a young Baltimore detective joins forces with Poe to stop him from making his stories a reality.
The film posits a fictional representation of the last days in the life of Edgar Allan Poe. In reality, no one actually knows how Poe spent his last days, his death being shrouded in mystery. He was found, delirious, on the streets of Baltimore on October 3, 1849, wearing clothes that were not his own. On the night before his death, he was reported to have repeatedly called out the name "Reynolds." He died on October 7, 1849, as depicted in the film. All medical records, including his death certificate, have been lost.
