Trailer for The Haunted Palace

This is a trailer for a 1960s B-movie that was supposed to be based on "The Haunted Palace." (It was actually based on a story by another great American horror writer, H.P. Lovecraft.) This flick looks amazing.

Here are some pictures from Poe's life, along with a version of the poem as a song from the musical "Edgar." (We're not making that last part up.)

A Classical "The Haunted Palace"

Dig it: this "symphonic poem" was written by the composer Florent Schmitt, who based it on Poe's poem.

Saruman Reads "The Haunted Palace"

Okay, okay. So it's not the wizard himself, but the actor, Christopher Lee, who played him in LOTR. It's still a good reading, though—well worth a listen.

Poe's Grave

Poe's grave is in Baltimore. For years, a mysterious masked man would lay a rose and some cognac there on Poe's birthday. Folks got too nosy, though, so it looks like that tradition's died out. Still, we think this shot of the tombstone really captures the mood of a Poe tale.

Modern Poe

We like this slightly abstract portrait of Poe. We think it fits well with the spooky vibe of his poems.
