Do I sense an iconographic touch? Love the form of the bed.

It again seems that I'm subconsciously channelling knowledge of art history that, I really should have by now, but am not fully aware of. I suppose it could fall under the banner of iconographic art but at the time of painting I didn't have a name for what I was going for. Glad you like it. I just remembered that part of the story with the lantern and the old man getting up in bed, everyone seems to quote the scene at the end, but this is what's most interesting in the story for me. It's the most terrifying and oddly (figuratively) seductive in terms of facing up to our not often talked about voyeuristic nature. This is I feel is what Poe was going for being that we're in the killer's head and not the victim's. Thanks for the feedback, it's always educational and thought provoking.
