Audience Reviews for The Tell-Tale Heart

A shy librarian named Edgar kills his best friend over a woman, and is driven mad by the sound of a beating heart coming from under the floorboards. The new sexual frustration plot devised here to draw Edgar Allan Poe's short story out to feature length really isn't very interesting or much in Poe's spirit.

Super Reviewer

This movie isn't made very well, but the actors are pretty good, and the story is a classic, so it was okay.
