Happy 200th Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe

Today, Edgar Allan Poe is two hundred years young. And as I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I have a huge affinity for Mr. Poe. He was hanging out with me before I discovered Lovecraft or Stephen King or any other horror author. And the only trouble with trying to put something together with media about Poe is that we’ve already done huge amounts of related material, what with all the Halloween goodness we have going on around here.

So here’s a list of some of my favorite Poe bits we’ve posted, so you can celebrate with us.

And here’s what others are doing: are you doing something? Ping me or leave a comment and let’s have a big party. Unless you’re posting one of those vids that has Poe’s still image with a moving mouth. Don’t turn the dude into a Muppet. Show some respect.

Update: Cult Reviews has posted two films from 1928 based on “House of Usher”. Well played!
