The legends are back, my friends! Are back from oblivion, from dusty books, legends are back from their graves.
“Extraordinary Tales” is a horror anthology that reinterpret five of Edgar Allan Poe‘s most shivery stories, each in a different style of animation. The stories to be revived are “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Pit and the Pendulum”, “The Fall of the House of Usher”, “The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar” and “The Masque of the Red Death.”
And now comes the interesting part. This is the other part which involves legends. Well, the film features the voices of Sir Christopher Lee (in one of his final film performances), Bela Lugosi, Julian Sands, Roger Corman and Guillermo del Toro. So, how does that sounds? Legen… wait for it… dary! Legendary! If you now what I mean.
Directed by Raúl García, the film is produced by Stephan Roelants, and co-produced by Raúl García, Rocio Ayuso, Serge Ume and Isabelle Truc.
“Extraordinary Tales” will be released in theaters and On Demand on October 23, just in time for Halloween.
