Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive draws on the rich palette of Poe's evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to tell the real story of the notorious author. The film, featuring Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor Denis O'Hare, explores the misrepresentations of Poe as an alcoholic madman akin to the narrators of his horror stories. It reveals the way in which more than any other writer of his time, and even our own time, Poe tapped into what it means to be a human being in our modern and sometimes frightening world.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS

Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.

"With a 90-minute running time, he said, "Buried Alive" does a better job of revealing Poe than past productions, including two hourlong programs made by PBS and A&E's "Biography" in the 1990s." - Daily Progress

3.5 out of 4 stars
"Featuring insights from modern critics, readings from Poe by Chris Sarandon, and dramatic re-creations with Denis O'Hare playing Poe, this is a fine portrait of the artist." - Video Librarian"
