"Madness, but will you say that I am mad? Murder, perhaps you judge too soon. For when you hear my story, you will certainly understand why, very gradually - I made up my mind to take the life of the old man."
True to the words of master storyteller Edgar Allan Poe, this stunning adaptation brings to life what is perhaps Poe's best known short story. Murder, madness, and betrayal from within interweave in this fascinating study into the mind of one driven by his own demons to take the life of another.
