The Many Tales of the Black Cat – Episode 36

In this episode of Watch.Read.Listen., we discuss Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat” and three adaptations of Poe’s short story by Roger Corman (in 1962’s Tales of Terror), Dario Argento (in 1990’s Two Evil Eyes), and Stuart Gordon (in Masters of Horror Season 2). What is the fundamental nature of a story: plot, character, theme? How can a story with little plot be adapted?
