The Tell-Tale Heart

I found this computer-generated animation of the Edgar Allan Poe classic over at iFilms.This is only a trailer, but it's cool.

Here is the blurb that accompanies the video:
Edgar seems like a proper and well to do gentleman. However, even ones most seemingly intelligent and kind neighbor can go mad. This computer-generated trailer of Edgar Allan Poe's classic, The Tell-Tale Heart, was created to embody the dark motif, classic style, and heavy anticipation so well crafted in the original written story. In honor of Poe and his followers, the short includes several Easter eggs of Poe's life and other stories/poems.

Here is the website for the film.

And here is the original, 1953 version of the film -- the first animation to be given an X rating. It's narrated by James Mason.
