Poe: Three Animations of ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’

It was Edgar Allen Poe’s birth date on 19 January; here (slightly late) are three very different animations of Poe’s classic tale ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’, with an accompanying essay by Josh Jones and links to further resources. Each one captures Poe’s disturbing darkness brilliantly; each one has different merits (though perhaps my favourite is the 1954 version, creepily narrated by James Mason).
