PBS is celebrating one of the masters of macabre with a new episode of “American Masters” titled Edgar Allen Poe: Buried Alive.
The special, starring Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story) as Poe, airs on Halloween Eve, Monday, October 30, at 9:00 PM. Here’s the official synopsis:
Written and directed by Eric Stange, the new documentary American Masters – Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive draws on the rich palette of Poe’s evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to tell the real story of the notorious author. Narrated by Oscar- and Tony-nominated, two-time Golden Globe-winner Kathleen Turner, American Masters – Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive explores the misrepresentations of Poe as a drug-addled madman akin to the narrators of his horror stories.
See the spooky trailer for the special below.
