Edgar Allan Poe's The Cask of Amontillado

"The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge." So speaks Montresor in this faithful rendition of Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling story of a murderous trap irresistibly baited with fine wine and flattery. Strong performances and outstanding cinematography make this classic program—an object of considerable critical acclaim at film festivals—an excellent introduction to the work of the master of the American gothic genre. (17 minutes)
