A new trailer has been released for “Extraordinary Tales,” a horror anthology that reimagines five of Edgar Allan Poe’s most bone-chilling stories, each in a different style of animation. The five stories to be reborn on screen are “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Masque of Red Death” and “The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar.”

The above trailer offers all the thrills and chills one would expect from Edgar Allan Poe, and the creepy, stylized animation perfectly captures the menacing aura of the gothic poet. The stories will also be narrated by some of the most legendary names in horror, including Christopher Lee, Roger Corman, Guillermo Del Toro and Bela Lugosi.

“Extraordinary Tales” will be released in theaters and On Demand on October 23, just in time for Halloween.
