“Perversity,” wrote Edgar Allan Poe, is “the human thirst for self torture.” Jeffrey Combs of RE-ANIMATOR fame delivers an electrifying performance as the legendary writer driven to debt and drunken folly by a world cruelly indifferent to his poetry. But is it his beloved wife’s agonizing death by consumption or her deranged pet feline that will soon trigger the scribe’s most ghastly acts of madness? Director Stuart Gordon and longtime collaborator Dennis Paoli (RE- ANIMATOR, DAGON, CASTLE FREAK) co-wrote this grisly exploration of horror fiction’s dark genius, condemned to a living hell of illusion, insanity and beyond by THE BLACK CAT.
Director(s): Stuart Gordon
