"I got this film to compliment a unit on Poe and a reading of the "Tell-Tale Heart" with my 8th grade students. My disappointment was in the lack of creativity that went into the film. The speaker recites the story alone for the most part. Very few flashbacks provide images of his actions, and the lighting, music, etc. are costant, unchangeing with the mood. Essentially, the kids found it to be corny, and so did I. The greatest value in showing it was giving them one more exposure to the text through a different medium. However, I will still look for the animated version I watched as a child so that I don't have to show this one again next year."
