The movie is made of five episodes, The Fall of House Usher, The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Masque of the Red Death and the The Tell-Tale Heart.

Starring voices of the late, great Christopher Lee, the iconic Bela Lugosi (from beyond the grave), filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, B-movie influential Roger Corman, and veteran horror and fantasy actor Julian Sands, Extraordinary Tales brings Poe’s fantastic stories to the screen for everyone to admire.
