THE BLACK CAT (TV-MA)
SHOWTIME NETWORKS (2006)
Starring: Jeffrey Combs, Elyse Levesque, Aron Tager, Eric Keenleyside, Patrick Gallagher & more.
Stuart Gordon is the master director behind this episode of Showtime's MASTERS OF HORROR
series. Jeffrey Combs stars as Edgar Allen Poe on this creepy classic thriller about the macabre
author. In this story he is suffering from writers block and even worst is that he is being tormented
by a evil black cat. The cat is causing him to slowly go insane. He eventually hits his breaking point
and kills the cat, but the cat won't remain dead. It keeps coming back to continuously torture him.
There are lots of things in this story that give nods to a lot of Edgar Allen Poe's classic stories. This
was a very cool story and was played perfectly by Horror genre favorite Jeffrey Combs. He really
makes you believe he is the great Edgar Allen Poe.
