Synopsis:
Edgar Allan Poe's timeless chiller The Tell-Tale Heart gets a feminist perspective and a suspenseful new twist in this short film from award-winning director Eli Meissner. Adding a socially conscious commentary to the famous story, this short film explores the possible psychological roots of the narrator's “madness.” The visually stunning tale unfolds layer by layer, through three dimensions of narrative. When a young woman's secret past resurfaces in the form of realistic nightmares, she begins to fear the evil vulture-eye of her watchful uncle. Our narrator is caught in a collision of reality and delusion. Shot on location in upstate New York on the state-of-the-art RED ONE digital camera by award-winning Director of Photography Patrick Elliot (Love Orchard). The film co-stars acclaimed Michigan actor Grant Krause (Machine Gun Preacher).
