Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive 1x56

Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive is a docudrama that tells the fascinating and revealing story of one of the world’s best known—and most misunderstood—writers. The film explores the misrepresentations of Poe as an alcoholic madman akin to the narrators of his horror stories and reveals the way in which more than any other writer of his time, and even our own time, Poe tapped into what it means to be a human being in our modern and sometimes frightening world.

Starring Tony® Award-winning and Emmy® Award-nominated actor Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story, The Good Wife), 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 and to help us bring new understanding to this unique American writer’s life and his place in popular culture.
