The Tell-Tale Heart

What better time than Halloween for a story from America’s father of psychological horror. And what better example than The Tell-Tale Heart. Among the numerous of Poe adaptations for stage, screen and television, there are at least 20 versions of The Tell-Tale Heart. The UPA version from 1954 is a surprising take on Poe’s story from a studio better known more for its cartoons. This animated adaptations has an almost Expressionist feel to it. And the topper is a chilling narration by the great James Mason.
