  • Poe's storytelling gift is so timeless, and the voice actors assembled so captivating, that "Extraordinary Tales" can't help but work on some level. It just never quite rises above that faint praise.

    October 23, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Extraordinary Tales" reminds viewers that animation can enable an artist to realize an individual vision, even on a limited budget.

  • Just in time for Halloween comes this singular tribute to Edgar Allan Poe from veteran animator Raul Garcia.

    October 22, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The best sections reverberate with the power of Poe's words. As such, they serve as apt tributes to yarns that will always be more formidable on the page than on the screen.

    October 22, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The voices of the late Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi reading from the text isn't quite the same. But Garcia compensates with a different animation style for each of the five stories.
