Ethan Poe, an ancestor of Edgar Allan Poe and a famous writer in his own right, is haunted by the long dead Edgar and this begins to affect his behavior. When he comes to a town to promote his new book, he meets another relative of Poe, Ann, and falls for her. But, during his stay in town, the bodies begin to pile up and all evidence points to Ethan. And is Ann the next victim?
Interesting idea using a lot of Poe's own references and featuring Katherine Heigl in a pre-Grey's Anatomy role.
