I urge you to put on this hour-long special from 1970. It's Vincent Price performing four Edgar Allan Poe stories, solo. Truly brilliant, creepy, and engrossing. Enjoy:

The stories are: The Tell-Tale Heart, The Sphinx, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Pit and the Pendulum.

If you like that, you need to see Tim Burton's VINCENT, a Tribute to Edgar Allan Poe and Vincent Price.
