EDGAR ALLAN POE: BURIED ALIVE draws on the rich palette of Poe's evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to tell the real story of the notorious author. Directed by Eric Stange and featuring Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor Denis O'Hare, the film explores the misrepresentations of Poe as an alcoholic madman akin to the narrators of his horror stories. More than any other writer of his time, and even our own time, Poe tapped into what it means to be a human being in our modern, sometimes frightening world. The film will air on PBS's American Masters later this year.
