FEWDIO Horror: Smoke

So far, this is my favorite of the Fewdio films. A wordless tribute to Edgar Allen Poe’s classic, “The Telltale Heart.” In four and a half minutes, you know everything you need to know about this nameless man, what he’s done and how he feels about it. You can see his dilemma and understand why he takes the actions that he takes. One of my favorite details is the collection of photographs pasted on his bathroom wall.

It’s a wonderful example of how a brutal story doesn’t have to be graphic. A bit of visual poetry that I imagine Poe himself would appreciate.

You can check it out on Youtube or Fewdio. And if you want to support the people who make these films, consider picking up the DVD collection, Nightmare House.
