"Stuart Gordon directs this excellent Poe adaptation starring Lance Henriksen, who plays the Grand Inquisitor as creepy as he can (and that dude's creepy). The acting is excellent all around, and the humor in it works well to offset the serious subject matter. The opening scene where they flog a corpse is especially hilarious, and the film occasionally made me think of Army of Darkness (though it's far less comedic). Definitely worth watching.
