“This feels like a coherent animated horror anthology than a collage of Raúl García’s various influences and cinematic obsessions writ large. The inherent “cool factor” involved in watching short films of Edgar Allan Poe’s famous stories narrated by the likes of Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi goes a long way towards justifying the very existence of Extraordinary Tales, but I just wish there was more there.   Parts of García’s various short films are spectacular, beautiful, and baroque works of animation. The film is never less than visually pleasing even if the narrative stumbles or the presentation needed more finessing.

"First viewing - June 9th This just popped up on Netflix, and as a long-time fan of Edgar Allan Poe I had to check it out. Basically they took a handful of his short stories, set them to animation, and found a narrator for all but the last segment ("The Masque of the Red Death"). I dug how different the animation was throughout the film, and that they used different styles for each tale. My favorite of the bunch was easily "The Tell-Tale Heart" read by Bela Lugosi, which is reason enough to watc"
