Dramatic readings of Edgar Allen Poe for Halloween

Christopher Walken gives an unforgettable dramatic reading of the classic Edgar Allen Poe poem, The Raven. Poe was a frequent visitor to Providence, where he met and romanced Sarah Helen Whitman, for whom his famous poem To Helen is written. More eerie videos below the fold.

James Earl Jones does a good job of it as well. 

Then again, it's hard to beat Vincent Price. 

The Tell-Tale Heart seems like it could have been written for Price.
