| One of the Best Animated Horror films of all time
Of the animated horror movies I've been trying to hunt down in the last few years, this one takes the cake as my personal favorite and most pleasant surprise. I'd been saying for the longest time: "Why stretch out a whole Poe story to a feature-length snore or cheese-fest? The man wrote short stories! Make an anthology already!" Low and behold, that's what they did. Beyond adapting these stories to perfection visually, the whole movie is a love-letter to Poe, what with all the background references and the voice talents being that of horror-elite, showing their respect for the man who helped invent their genres of choice.

There are only two gripes I have with the film and that's some of the animation in the Pit and the Pendulum bit (the rest of the movie stylizes it's budgeted animation so it looks good even with all the resources the creators have) and the introductory cards and credits for each sequence, which can take you out of the movie. Besides that it's a must see Poe-lovers and animated horror fans.
