Description: Director Stuart Gordon and actor Jeffrey Combs host a double bill of classic black-and-white horror films inspired by the work of Edgar Allan Poe. Gordon and Combs collaborated on their own Poe adaptation, “The Black Cat,” for Showtime’s Masters of Horror series a few years back, and later presented a one-man stage play about the author, Nevermore, which they hope to turn into a film.
