Music: Sergio de la Puente. Edition: Aurélien Antezac. Voices: Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi, Julian Sands, Guillermo del Toro, Stephen Hugues, Cornelia Funke, Roger Corman.

An animated adaptation of five of Edgar Allan Poe's most renowned tales. Different techniques come together in this piece, blending 2D and 3D with black and white and colour, each short with its own particular style. Raúl García, a Spanish animator who has been working on large productions in the USA for over 30 years (in 2008, he directed his first feature-length project, The Missing Lynx), has incredible narrators for each one of the stories by the Bostonian master wordsmith: The Pit and the Pendulum (Guillermo del Toro), The Raven (Stephen Hughes), The Fall of the House of Usher (Christopher Lee), The Tell-Tale Heart (Bela Lugosi) and The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar (Julian Sands).

Guest: Josemi Beltrán (Horror and Fantasy Film Festival)
