GKIDS announced its acquisition of North American rights to EXTRAORDINARY TALES, an animated film anthology of five of Edgar Allen Poe’s best-known stories. The film, which features the voices of the aforementioned horror icons, will get a day-and-date release on October 30, in theaters and on video-on-demand platforms.
EXTRAORDINARY TALES offers heart-pounding takes on The Tell-Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar, and The Masque of the Red Death, with animation inspired by sources as diverse as classic Hollywood black-and-white monster films, or the pulpy feel of EC Comics.
The stories are narrated by a stable of legendary genre directors and actors, including Sir Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi, Julian Sands, Roger Corman, and Guillermo Del Toro. The film is written and directed by Raúl García, produced by Stephan Roelants, and co-produced by Raúl García, Rocio Ayuso, Serge Ume, and Isabelle Truc.
