In keeping with the Halloween theme, I recommend another creepy short film based on Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart. It stars Joseph Schildkraut as the abused worker who takes revenge on his cruel master and lives to regret it.
The film is very atmospheric, and will make you cringe at the tension and the knowledge of what's under that floor! Schildkraut makes the whole sordid tale worth watching. You feel for the character but you're creeped out by him at the same time.
I once read The Tell-Tale Heart out loud in 8th grade English class. Looking back, I can't imagine where I got the nerve to do that. LOL I was the shyest girl in school. But apparently a few of the kids enjoyed my performance. Maybe I should've been an actress.
