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.
No where as classic or truthful as the story. While it keeps many of the same elements, it's missing the themes and the overall creepiness, plus it leaves out a lot of the good bits. Slow story, and a rather dumb overused end twist. Not my favorite adaption.
Rarely seen 1960 British adaption of the Edgar Allen Poe story starring Laurence Payne and Adrienne Corri. This adaptation adds a host of new things to what was in the original story, not surprising given the length of the story and is surprisingly gory for 1960. Pretty good.
Well, this was more amusing than scary, but it was enjoyable none the less. It teaches you, that if you ever feel like murdering your best friend because he stole your girl, don't bury him under your floorboards...
