Which of these Poe stories got a Roger Corman adaptation?

Edgar Allen Poe and Roger Corman: A perfect match

Quoth Roger Corman "I'll do a boatload of Edgar Allan Poe material."

And why not? Poe is one of the greatest writers of weird literature of all time. He spooketh, he creepeth, and it's all super well done. Corman, who never delivered a picture over budget, rose to the material and elevated his game to deliver incredibly rich Poe adaptations.

So let's see how well you know your stuff. You can come to this quiz from two directions, as a Corman fan, or as a Poe fan. Whichever way you slice it, we want to see how well you remember whether these stories were made into movies or not.

Be sure to post your score and your favorite Roger Corman movie in the comments section below!

Hello, I was just checking in on you this evening 😉 Hope everything is going as smoothly as possible.
----------------------------------------------------
Thank you. For all intensive purposes....Yes. All the immediate needs have been addressed. Signed off on my dads Cremation and Death Certificate this afternoon.
However without going into any detail, there are complexities. The details after the facts are coming into play. I'm frustrated with some of the family dynamics going on, but I suppose it's par for the course.

See you @ So, You Think You Know the 12 Days of Christmas
Where everyone can take a guess or make comments to other quizzers.
There will be extra bonus movies for just coming by. Including entertainment for all. Feel free to ask questions, copy movie links and just plain join in the fun via communication. The MQ will be up until the movie is guessed and an hour to look over and pick out what you wish. Have fun doing so. There are no wrong answers but the first one to guess the correct movie gets their names put up for getting it correctly.
Good luck and enjoy
Thinking of doing Ron Howard movies next week. 4-6 of them

Not sure why the Quiz after this one is included as a quiz ? :



It's more a game. There's also no comment area included with it. Understandably it's for fun, however most quizzes include the comment section so folks can share their result. Oh well just curious and it's all for fun.

I noticed that too. Initially, I thought that MeTV changed the format of the quizzes!
LoveMETV22 Rob 2 months ago
Yeah I think it's really more of a game not a quiz. Usually all their quizzes have an area to comment. Well for those who wish to do it it's all for fun.
