Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party Review

While casually scrolling my Facebook as one does, I came across an article about this web series being a great show to watch during the Halloween season. So me, always looking for blog post ideas, decided to investigate what this show was all about and give it a watch.

Poe Party, created by Shipwrecked., is about a murder mystery dinner party that Poe hosts in order to impress Annabel Lee. Guests include Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, and other well-known literary figures of the time. When the murder becomes real and the guests become victims, the party must solve the mystery.


You wouldn’t think a series about murder and Edgar Allan Poe would be a comedy, would you? Well, you can bet your beating heart under the floorboard that this show is definitely full of comedic wonder. Let’s start with the full show name: Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Invite Only Casual Dinner Party/ Gala for Friend’s Potluck (Poe Party for short). And with every character being well-known authors, you can expect them to be the exaggerated version of those authors. Oscar Wilde was one of my favorites in the show for his comedic timing.  And poor Emily Dickinson…


I watched the whole series in one day because it was easily binged watched. Episodes are only 7-15 minutes long, so it is an amusing and quick watch. I definitely had a good laugh at the show, and the bloopers I watched after as well. I would call this a well-read comedy. And as for the mystery, I was certainly surprised in the end which is what you want in a mystery.


If you’re not a horror movie watcher, you can get your spooky on with a good laugh from this series. You can watch it all now on YouTube.

  2. I attended a Murder Mystery show when I was in the states last time and it was a lot of fun, so I have a soft spot for this sort of thing. This show sounds really fun, thanks for sharing!
