From the Universal-produced monster movies of the 1930s and 1940s—which included Bela Lugosi starring in 1935’s The Raven—to the eight-picture, Roger Corman-Vincent Price cycle of low-budget Poe adaptations in the 1960s, Poe’s work has, both directly and indirectly, continued to inspire some of the most thought-provoking and entertaining horror films of the 20th and 21st centuries. This panel seeks papers which deal with movies directly based on Poe’s original work and on those true to the spirit of Poe’s aesthetics, imagery, and artistic ideology.
