Edgar Allen Poe is a disturbed, brilliant, alcoholic author living in 1840s Baltimore. A serial murder kills his victims exactly as identified in many of Poe's stories. When the police figure this out, they enlist Poe to help them solve the crimes. The crimes become more personal when Poe's fiancee is kidnapped.
The plot is similar to an old Vincent Price film, Theatre of Blood. In that one, Price was the serial killer, and he murdered his victims in ways identical to those enacted in Shakespeare's plays. That wasn't a great movie, but Vincent Price helped make it very decent. Check out Catfreek's review in the Monster List. I was hoping JOhn Cusack would save this one. He didn't.
