"From the Terrifying Pages of Edgar Allan Poe!"

Meet Edgar. He's a Librarian, into 'erotica', has only one friend, and he is mad shy with women! When an attractive woman named Betty moves across the street from Edgar's home, he immediately (and awkwardly) approaches her and asks her out. The two go out for a while but nothing happens. Oh sure, Edgar is all lovey dovey with Betty, but she however isn't all lovey dovey with him. She just pities him (bogus!). When Betty meets Edgar's only friend Carl, she falls madly in love with him! Eventually, Carl and Betty fuck. Unfortunately, Edgar saw them fucking since he can see thru Betty's window from a room upstairs in his house. Edgar, angry and all... Invites Carl over and kills him brutally with a fire poker. After killing him, Edgar begins to hear Carl's heart beat all over his house. Even after taking the heart out of the dead body & burying it in the dirt, Edgar continues to hear the heart beat. It's driving him mad! Way Mad!

Based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart is a great movie! It's fun, it's interesting, and the acting is really great. The entire cast play these characters perfectly, especially Laurence Payne (Edgar). Now what I really like about this movie is the fact that its quite brutal. It ain't too brutal but it is brutal enough to make you say "ouch!" and "eeewwww". The scene where Edgar kills Carl is quite painful to watch! You can almost feel the fire poker hitting you! Another painful scene is when Edgar takes the 'beating' heart out Carl's dead body. When he takes out the heart, you can see the bloody heart in his hands. Now that's nasty!

If you're in the mood for a classy & nasty little UK horror movie, I recommend you watch The Tell-Tale Heart. It's fun, bloody, and cool. You can get this movie anywhere for a real cheap price. So go on, grab a copy and enjoy!! 8/10.
