The Curse of Metzengerstein

Another pre-code Edgar Allan Poe adaptation for you today, this one I originally donated to the excellent Quasar Dragon blog way back in January 2009. So here it is again for anyone that missed it the first time, from the June 1953 issue of Chilling Tales #16.

Amusing facial expressions. Even on the horse.

"The tapestry horse! It's fixing me in its binocular field of vision as if its monocular field of vision was no longer sufficient! It's looking at me twice as much as normal!"

What artist should we assign to this one? I know, the one that can't draw fire!

Poe and a shout-out, thanks! Have to agree about the fire, though.

"We do not know why, but it doesn't matter. Ha! Ha! Ha!". Metzengerstein is the classic madman of nobility, doomed to suffer for the actions of his ancestors.

A good tale, and a rarely adapted Poè story!
