Gkids has bought North American rights to “Extraordinary Tales,” an animated film anthology of five of Edgar Allan Poe’s best-known stories.

The film features the voices of Christopher Lee (in one of his final film performances), Bela Lugosi, Julian Sands, Roger Corman and Guillermo del Toro. The stories are “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Fall of the House of Usher,” “The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar” and “The Masque of the Red Death.”

The movie screens throughout this week at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. GKids plans a day-and-date release on October 30 in theaters and on VOD.

Directed by Raúl García, the film is produced by Stephan Roelants, and co-produced by Raúl García, Rocio Ayuso, Serge Ume and Isabelle Truc.

The deal was negotiated between Stephan Roelants for Melusine Productions and Eric Beckman for GKids.
