Star Jeffrey Combs, writer Dennis Paoli, and director Stuart Gordon - the men behind the classic horror film H.P. Lovecraft's REANIMATOR - reteam to present this one-man play - subtitled "Prose, Poetry, and Perversion - inspired by the author of "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Raven," and "The Black Cat." Previously, Combs, Paoli, and Gordon adapted the latter story into one of the better episodes of Showtime's MASTERS OF HORROR series - with Combs cast as Poe. Gordon directed stage productions before turning to movies, so he should know what he is doing; overall, this project sounds like a dream come true for Los Angeles-area fans of Gothic literature.
