Another one of my favorite Poe poems, below only The Masque of the Red Death and The Pit and the Pendulum for me. Most definitely creepy, as befitting the master of horror. Read full review

Very Short. Very Very Thrilling story. Brings up the excitement with full acceleration in just a paragraph. Then keeps it up till the very end - ending with a big bang. I think I did hear my heart. My adrenaline must have been pumping it fast. :) Read full review
