A Poe movie

A former seminary teacher of mine recently asked me to help him out with a project for his Master's degree in education--he was putting together a 9th grade unit on Edgar Allan Poe short stories, and wanted to introduce it with a movie with an eerie vibe and an emphasis on different kinds of phobias. Here's the result. (The music is the best I could find at the time on Creative Commons--one of the few things that didn't sound like a 13 year old sitting in his parent's basement and looping stuff on a synthesizer for eight minutes. I would've preferred some dissonant classical something or other, but we can't have everything.)
