Video - The Animated Tell Tale Heart

Today marks the 161st anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's death. To mark the day Open Culture posted the animated short film The Tell Tale Heart.

If you'd like a free copy of the The Tell Tale Heart, I embedded it below after finding it on Google Books.

Applications for Education
I know a few English teachers that, because of the style of Poe's works, like to use it as Halloween approaches. The video may help some students get a better understanding of the story.
