In 1849, two years after the death of his wife Virginia, Edgar Allan Poe is haunted not just by the specter of his beloved, but also by his many macabre stories. As he roams from room to room, searching for release from his personal demons, Poe relives both his life and his tales. Follow Poe and the ghost of his wife Virginia as they take you throughout haunted Mayslake Hall and deep into The Madness of Edgar Allan Poe.
