Editorial Reviews

As Ann Hedgerow (Grey's Anatomy star Katherine Heigl) - an indirect descendant of Edgar Allan Poe - begins to explore her family's past, she meets novelist Ethan Poe (Party of Five's Jeremy London). Ethan, also a distant descendant of Poe, is tormented by visions of his famous ancestor. When Ann and Ethan begin a romance, the dark - and deadly - secrets of Poe's legacy emerge...will Poe's stories inspire a real-life horror-tragedy?

Customer Reviews

The biggest butchering was what they did to the life of Edgar Allan Poe.
The Movie Guy
There are many references to Poe's work throughout the film, but they do little to make it interesting.
Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein
This doesn't bother her though, she still wants to have his babies even though he throws mad fits.

Format: DVD
An intriguing premise undermined by weak performances, uninspired direction and some illogical plotting.
Jeremy London greatly overacts his role of Ethan Poe, a descendant of Edgar Allan Poe, who is working on his latest novel. Pre-Gray's Anatomy Katherine Heigl is okay in her role of another Poe descendant. Poe himself appears as a ghostly apparition haunting Ethan. It doesn't take too long to realize young Ethan isn't playing with a full deck. A series of brutal murders leads local cop Nick Stabile to suspect London.
It's all laid out in a smarmy neo-Gothic style with pseudo-erotic undertones.
Could have been better with a better actor than London and a higher thrill quotient.

Before most Hollywood Videos closed here in Abq, NM I bought this movie. There wasn't many movies left to choice from. I bought five other movies, which all sucked. I was expecting this movie to suck just as much. But surprisingly it wasn't bad. It's not the best movie out there, but I look forward to watching it.

The biggest butchering was what they did to the life of Edgar Allan Poe. This story is based on the false notion Poe not only had heirs, but the House of Usher was a factual story.

Ann Hedgerow (Katherine Heigl) is the main character in this tell-tale. She inherits a rather large house. She is loved by her brother Keifer (Matt Farnsworth)is a most unhealthy way. She also has the the attention of a distant cousin Ethan Poe, who uses her to release his writer's block. Unfortunately Ethan is not all there and talks to the image of Edgar (Arie Verveen). Sex, murder, and bits and pieces of Poe's stories are used in the film.

Outside of the brief nudity, the quality of the writing was made for TV. The acting was bad, but to honest, the script never gave them a chance. Available on a Wal-Mart 20 film multipack for $5.00

Parental Guidance: No f-bombs I recall. Sex and nudity.

This film is about a cop who likes a girl and so he does nice things for her (of course she could care less). Later on the girl goes to bed and then her brother tries to rape her. Obviously rape isn't nice and so she does the right thing by kicking him out of her house (brilliant!). A few hours later she invites her cousin to move in with her and that's when he starts to talk and shout to invisible people. This doesn't bother her though, she still wants to have his babies even though he throws mad fits. What broke the camels back was when he locked her in her room... kill people and talk to invisible creatures but don't lock a woman in her room. Lucky ye old piece of paper and a pin worked to get her out. This movie features Jeremy London who starred in The Chronic Masturbator Trilogy and some chick from a TV show I've never watched. This movie is so bad that if Edgar Allan himself saw this film he would have overdosed before the credits rolled. I would watch that Mississippi tard flick one more time before this one.

This is a very different Kh from greys anatomy , her TV series.

katherine Heigl can disappear into a character and this story, though rather scary, keeps up the pace and a surprise ending.
I would recommend this video to anyone who like this kind of semi-scary entertainment. Of course , the ending is not really original but still good.
