It's guaranteed I'll see any film about Edgar Allan Poe and Francis Xavier's new cannibal horror flick Poe is no exception. Metropolis Pictures Entertainment will start production in January for the film starring David Fine (The Violent Kind), Tony Todd (Candyman), and Stelio Savante (My Super Ex Girlfriend).

"The film follows formerly acquitted and rehabilitated criminal, Dr. Andrew Casey (David Fine) who relocates to Los Angeles under the alias Jack Conway, aka 'The Chef'. Conway and his Butler, Mr Peeples (Tony Todd) establish a respected soup kitchen/charity, 'The Help Feeding Foundation', which lures the likes of actresses and models under false pretense.

The women are in fact obtained to satisfy Casey's culinary tastes. Conway handpicks respected writer, Jonathan Poe (Stelio Savante) descendant of famed writer, Edgar Allan Poe, to immortalize him in the form of an autobiography.

Poe is intrigued by Conway and his lucrative offer, and agrees to the assignment. Once at the house, Poe is forced to witness a manner of horrors without the ability to either escape or help the women who have been captured.

Resigned to his fate, Poe takes up the task at hand and begins recording the autobiography of Casey and his cannibalistic spree."

Bloody-Disgusting posted the early art which features the tasty tagline, "Good bread, good meat, good God, let's eat!" The poster also indicates the film is based on true events. Aside from the Edgar Allan Poe angle, true or false?
